Hang onto your Christmas baubles friends because I have a fun little look at a shoot we did for Northernly’s new Up North Market that’s full of beautiful and cozy gift giving and Holiday goods. We shot at my friend Emily’s house for many reasons but mostly her gorgeous mantle which seemed like the perfect place to feature those faux fur stockings.
Although this happened pre-Halloween it was a lot of fun finding, making and getting Christmas decor out in preparation and definitely got me in the mood for the holidays.
One of the pros of working for yourself with a photographer that is also a friend is that every day can be bring your kid to work day. The con is that you just never know what kind of mood said kid might be in. Luckily Poppy was sweet and playful and even happy to help model that darling blanket that is now her favorite snuggle buddy.
She also takes payment in cookies.
It used to bug me when Christmas would roll into stores the day after halloween, but now with all these babes and the business of life I welcome as much extra time to prep and trim and bake and sing carols as I can get! We already have a few Christmas items up and I’ll be adding a little at a time for the next couple week.
When do you start decking the halls? 12 days before Christmas, the DAY after Thanksgiving or are holiday decorations fair game anytime after Halloween?
