Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Finally, a normal holiday picture from the Keatley’s, right? I’ll admit last years holiday photo was a little strange, what with the accident and everything. But the show must go on. This year we have a couple of new introductions. Our daughter Isla, and our yeti who is holding her. We did look into more “traditional” forms of childcare, but everything is so expensive these days.
I had a lot of fun planning this shoot out. I have been thinking about it, and planning for about 5 months, so seeing it finally come to life like this is a mix of pure excitement and a little relief. Although, I am already starting to think about next year. I just can’t help myself. It’s a blessing and a curse. I just think it will be so awesome to look back 10, 15, or 20 years from now and see all of the different holiday photos we have taken. Not to mention, how many 6-month-olds get to say they had their picture taken with a yeti? Isla is either going to think we are the coolest parents ever, or she won’t be able to get far enough away from us when she is older. I’m hoping for the first, but only time will tell.
This has been a wonderful year for me, and I am very grateful for all of your continued support and interest in my work. Thank you for reading my blog, and for coming out to hear me speak on occasion. That is definitely something I hope to do more of this next year. The next blog post you see from me will probably be me announcing my new website which I am very excited to share. As much as I like my current one, and it was selected in the 2010 PDN Annual, I feel like there is always room for improvement. Stay tuned.
