As much as the holiday season evokes feelings of anxiety, stress and general chaos, when you take a step back, it’s important to admire the beauty of it all. The twinkling lights, the celebratory atmosphere, the kindness of strangers, and the warmth of friends and family. It’s amazing with so much going on, there are such beautiful images of calm that can be captured if you just take the time and initiative to look hard enough.
I took a recent outing with a gal pal (and photographer extraordinaire!) and while originally stumped about how we were going to pull off a “festive party look” in about 6 inches of snow, I’m so excited to share these photos with you to show how far a little sparkle, a bright smile and a glass of wine will get you! The soft lighting obviously helps too.
