Vivi’s In-House Christmas Photo Sessions

By caseymullins |

One of the most spectacular things I’ve realized over the last year is that I know enough about photography now and have enough equipment to produce almost any photo I can imagine or reinterpret one inspired by someone else. Vivi and her sister are two of the best subjects alive when it comes to allowing me to test out my sometimes crazy ideas and so when the holiday photos started flying around the Internet I knew there were several I wanted to try out with Vivi.

While I would never consider myself a professional, I would consider myself a fanatic. There’s something about being able to see something in my head and then produce it with a bunch of buttons and settings and patience. I believe in sharing photography so as to inspire others to capture their own memories and come up with their own amazing ways of reinterpreting something someone else has done.

It would be impossible to take an exact duplicate of a photo, especially when babies are involved. So if you’re feeling clicky, there’s a few holiday themed photos from four different rounds of photo shoots I’ve done with my girls this year after the jump…

Christmas Baby Photos

These were my first attempt, I learned a lot from it and feel as though I improved my technique in following shoots.

I still have two more planned out in my head with only 10 days to do them.

    the best part of the pic with the bow falling off is that her chest is dripping with slobber. :) love them.

    Really great photos. Baby yawns are the best. The internet is making me want a camera. We just have a regular point-and-shoot digital.

    I’m also photo-obsessed (especially since my Christmas gift of a new camera and lenses!)… thanks for sharing these darling photos with us :)
