I was lucky enough to be given the pleasure of photographing baby Aaron at 12 days old! He is SUCH a handsome little guy with the sweetest parents and SUPER proud big brother. I’m also lucky to be able to call his parents friends! I love being able to work for and with friends – it’s such an honor to be trusted with capturing these fleeting moments for their family.
I’m a bit behind on my blogging, but Aaron was born right before Thanksgiving. And, when I got to their house and discovered they already had their Christmas tree up, I knew I HAD to get at least one, great Christmas themed newborn portrait.
Lastly, I’ll leave you with my favorite images from their session.
If you’ve never been to Bellingrath Home & Gardens, you’re doing yourself a disservice. If you’ve never been there for the “Magic Christmas in Lights,” then go ahead and put it on your calendar to go next year! They put on a truly phenomenal light display. And not only that, it’s easily walk-able for young and old alike. It’s also fully wheelchair and stroller accessible.
Understand of course, that these are merely a small sampling of the displays and scenes they have for you to enjoy. From the website itself:
"The holiday tradition lets guests stroll through a dazzling display, which features more than 1,000 set pieces, 3 million lights and 15 scenes throughout the 65-acre Garden estate. In addition, the Bellingrath Home is decorated in its holiday finery and enhanced with beautiful poinsettias.
The holiday event includes nightly choral performances on the South Terrace of the Home."
As we are all well aware, this year was an unseasonably WARM Christmas which meant that not only did I get to enjoy the beautiful light displays, I was also surprised to find plenty of the gorgeous flowers that the gardens are so well known for.
