Okay – so normally I don’t let Dakota…or the cats…or the dog…or anyone with messy fingers or smelly socks sit on my living room couch, let along jump on it! Yet, who can resist when the whole ensemble and enthusiasm make for such a picture perfect moment! I love how the red of Dakota’s Christmas pjs contrast with the softness of the rest of the room and compliment the greens in the pillow beside him. Too perfect – and this was a totally candid moment. I love catching those types of shots on portrait shoots, especially child portrait shoots – how fun when they happen with my very own family, who is on a constant portrait shoot, so it seems!
Check out his new monogrammed Christmas pjs! We decided to start a new family tradition of opening new pjs on Christmas eve and wear them as our Christmas morning present-opening attire.
“I need to rest,” he says. Who can blame him? He got more exercise in a few minutes than many of us get in a week…okay a year! 😉
Happy New Year!
