Five Days of Christmas | Raleigh Family Photography

What a good Monday!

I get to play Santa Claus and deliver beautiful prints to all of my good clients – ha ha ha!

While wrapping these beauties, my mind wandered and I realized that a familiar jingle applied perfectly ..


I am starting vacation as of tomorrow through the new year.  I have a few blog posts that will go up, and will probably post a few snaps from my own family adventures as well.

What an AMAZING year it has been, I am looking forward to recapping with you in 2014, as well as all the new and great things to come.

(And don’t forget my annual ‘Best Of’ contest in January!)


I hope your holiday & end of 2013 is safe, warm, bountiful and full of love & blessings!
