Happy Holidays from the Studio

What really starts the holiday season for you? Holiday lights? Presents under the tree? The first winter snow?

Being the foodies that we are, we focused on our favorite treats around the holidays. I decided what better way to celebrate than to capture portraits of the crew (including myself) with our favorite treats.

We started with our studio manager; Pamela, who made a gingerbread house because she shared many holiday seasons with her grandmother building and decorating them.

Pete brought his favorite holiday dessert pecan pie and his favorite treat for every day of the year; a steaming cup of hot coffee. The two make a delicious pair.

These sugar cookies were made using the same recipe Cody and his grandmother used every year of his childhood during the holidays. Of course, his favorite part is decorating and eating them.
