Dillard Family Christmas Photo
I had the pleasure of photographing the sweetest family before Christmas. They are renting a house on the Isle of Palms to celebrate several special occasions including spending Christmas together, retirement and an anniversary!
We lucked out with incredible weather and lighting down at Waterfront Park. It was one of those mornings right before Christmas where it was warm and foggy in the morning. The fog worked as the perfect buffer against the bright morning sun.
There was a fun bunch of kids counting down the days to Santa Claus and everyone was just so happy to be together, it was great.
This first photo is one of my all time favorites. Of course he’s crying, but he is two. And this is what we do at two. Give him a year or so and he’ll be running wild with his brother and cousins. I always feel a little guilty when I keep n photographing when a child’s crying, wanting his mama or a cracker or something. But then I’d miss moments like this.
