Portrait Session: Aly

Today’s cup of tea: Pickwick Dutch tea blend

Oh how I love trying teas from around the world, and thanks to my dear friend Lindsay, I have a box of this delightful Dutch tea. The light, citrus flavor is the perfect pick-me-up on this cold, damp December day, as I wind down from a whirlwind, emotionally-packed weekend. Yesterday began a series of farewells and so-longs that will conclude in two weeks, as I have a temporary relocation ahead of me! But enough of this rambling. I have several different portrait sessions I have yet to share, and I am dying to get them up here. 

Tonight I begin with Aly's senior portrait session. We had such good time chasing the light around the field. Aly has such beautiful heart and smile that makes her such a joy to capture. 

Family Portrait Session: Lindsay & Anneke

Today’s cup of tea: Mexican Hot Chocolate

Clearly, this is not tea, but today was freezing--basically the first freezing day of this season--and I was craving something a bit more substantial than tea. Mexican hot chocolate with almond milk, with its little bit of kick definitely hit the spot. 

The cold didn't stop us from taking a few portraits! Lindsay wanted a few updated photos with her mom, Anneke, who is visiting from the Holland! We had a wonderful time drinking tea, taking photos, and comparing notes about family, love, and life!

Today’s cup of tea: Earl Grey de la Creme, Essencha Tea House

This tea is, by far, my very favorite. This tea has celebrated with me in the highs and comforted during the lows. The vanilla cream mixed with the classic Earl Grey makes this black tea so naturally sweet and light that there is no need for added cream or sugar. 

On to this particular portrait session--which I must admit, has been my very favorite senior portrait session. Let me clarify: I have been taking pictures of my baby brother his entire life, but this time it actually marks a significant milestone!
