January's 10 on 10 - Christmas with the Woods

This is my first true attempt at lifestyle photography.  While I'd like to believe that I am always shooting lifestyle photography, it doesn't hurt to perfect and hone in on one's style.  And honestly in my portrait work I am more posed than lifestyle.  I do use lifestyle photography more so in my personal family images.  I felt like this was the best place to start.  So welcome to our family Christmas with the Woods family.

After dinner it's time to open gifts, the favorite part for the kids.  Here are my two boys opening gifts from their aunts and uncles and grandma and grandpa!

 

 

My brother-in-law opening his gift from us, not sure if I drew his name or my husband.  Look at that smile he is just a big kid at heart!

After the gifts are opened, it's time to play games!
How is this position even comfortable?

 


Then to end our evening we toasted in the New Year with Sparkling Cider.  Hope everyone has a great 2014!
