The Selman Family - Christmas Card photos in Courtenay, BC

I had the pleasure of photographing one of my absolute favourite families in October, and since there Christmas cards are now all in the hands of family members, I can share the photos with you guys!

We headed down to some train tracks, with gorgeous fall colours all around, and got TONS of great shots of this adorable family. The two boys were such superstars, even coming up with funny poses all on their own! I wish all my shoots could go this smoothly.

On to the photos!

It's Christmas Time!!

I am SO sorry for neglecting the blog... bad, bad, bad photographer! *slaps hand* As you can tell from my being MIA for months, it was a VERY busy fall for me! I had tons of sessions, and most of them could not be shared, as they were for Christmas cards. Well, Christmas cards are being mailed out by most people as we speak, so I should have lots of fabulous photos to share with you in the next little while :)

In the mean time, I wanted to share with you some of the adorable photos I captured today at the 19 Wing Jr Ranks Kids Christmas party. The big guy himself was on hand to meet all the little ones and even hand out some presents. It was so sweet to see the kids get excited to meet Santa. Though, to be honest, there were quite a few crying toddlers as well! But, for the most part, the kids were happy and it was a great day! :)

I'm probably biased, because I know and love this little guy, but isn't he adorable?

This next little girl was SO excited to see Santa she asked if she could come sit with him twice. It was very sweet.

I just love this little girls smile... and her dress!

This next girl brought a flyer, so that Santa would be really sure EXACTLY what she wanted. I thought that was hilarious (and cute)!

And finally, I couldn't get over the look on the little newborns face. Priceless :)

Aren't there some adorable kids in the military families of 19 Wing Comox? It was a pleasure to be their photographer for the day, and I'm so glad they asked me to come out! In appreciation of all that the military does for our country, and especially our community, I offer a 10% military discount to military members, and their spouses. All you have to do is tell me that you're in the military and you immediately get a discount on any portrait session or album/product order (unfortunately this is not available for weddings). How's that for a great deal? :)

I also wanted to remind people of my current Christmas special! I know that most moms/dads/grandparents/best friends would LOVE a custom photo session as a Christmas gift, so i'm offering a special on Gift Certificates. Purchase a gift certificate for a full session (a value of $150) for someone else (or yourself, whatever you like!) and you'll receive an extra gift certificate for $25 to keep for yourself. You can use the $25 for product (or stick it in with the present as a bonus for them!) or towards your next session. Everyone wins!

Well, i hope you all are enjoying the holiday season, I know I am! I'll be back soon with some fun photo shoots from the fall!

And to end, me and my fiance with Santa! Aren't we cute?
