Family Portraits Edwardsville – Danielle Morhaus Photography

Family Portraits Edwardsville – Each year I look forward to this session with some of my favorite clients!  Mom always calls to let me know when she will be putting up the Christmas tree.  Then we schedule our session at their home.  Not only do I get to see their beautiful decorations, I love seeing how much the girls have grown since our last session.  Throw in the fact that we have an absolute blast while we take our pictures and I call it heaven!

There’s nothing like coming inside to warm up like a cup of hot cocoa (or mug filled with whipped cream).  Mom was so clever to come up with this idea and the girls loved it.  With little direction from us, they played together with their mugs and the smiles were endless.

All Worn Out

After all the excitement of family photos, playing outside, and having some hot chocolate, the girls were ready to rest.  They snuggled up together in front of the Christmas tree for a story.  Big sister happily read to little sister showing her all the pictures in the book.  After all this, not a creature was stirring, not even…
