I must admit, I haven’t been picking my camera up much lately because I’ve been trying to enjoy this month with the boys without the pressure of picking up the camera every second. The boys are at such a fun age, and I figure we have a limited number of years to enjoy the innocence of the season. You can see their excitement building every day between advent calendars and the elf on the shelf. We really are having a fun time with the build up. In the past few weeks, I’ve been seeing lots of posts lately on Pinterest and other photography sites where people have used Christmas lights in the photos. I decided today to play around with the boys with the lights and with my new studio lights as well. For these shots, it’s simply room lighting in order to capture the glow of the lights. I really love these because I have no idea what they were talking about. Taking photos of my own kids is really hard for me! So, I told them to tell each other secrets, and this is what I got. They are such sweet boys! It’s the little moments like this that years from now will mean the most. And while they may not like all the pictures now, one day they will thank me for them, or at least their wives will!
