Kait, David and Leif to the Christmas tree farm (and I got to go too!)

I wasn’t feeling the holiday spirit until I went out with Kait and David and their little Leif to get their Christmas tree! Leif was a great sport and put up with me until right near the very end where he said he was “done” and we went into the little warm-up room for hot cocoa and cookies! Bunch of Pines was a really sweet place, great owners and the trees were BEAUTIFUL.  (I’m a super picky tree shape person, it’s a real bummer for most people having to deal with me, and I could have picked ANY OF THE TREES on their farm they were awesome)  As I’m done wrapping presents and I’m getting ready for a 2-week staycation with my guys I wanted to share this memory making, smile-inducing, holiday spirit-rousing, family session.  Happy Christmas to all who celebrate and happy solstice to those who do not!!

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.
