The Most Wonderful Time of '09

>> Sunday, December 27, 2009

Christmas was wonderful this year! It was a little surreal since it's the first time in 8 years that I haven't "come home" for Christmas. It's strange being on the other side and having those I'm close to come back to me.. hah.

I'm perhaps not an amazing enough photographer yet.. bc I haven't figured out for the life of me how to hang out with people I care about and shoot at the same time. I did manage to get some shots when I was with my parents and brother on Christmas day, but I decided not to bring my camera to the big family Christmas dinner (sorry I'm depriving you of photos of all of my adorable cousins!). Maybe one day I'll learn that balance.

Not your average Christmas ornaments... this is all mom

Yes, my dad's shirt says "wanna shag"... and we give hefty bags as gifts :)

Rylynn got a pig's hoof... eww

Mom and dad bought Taylor the same card... clearly we do our shopping separately

we go for the "warm" feel with our ornaments

Rylynn might even be too obedient

Oh the things we do to our dogs to make them look "cute"

My mom is beautiful... these photos don't do justice because I don't have an electronic flash for shooting inside. Hope you enjoy anyway :)

Among the fabulous presents this year, my dad got a wii (and wii fit plus), and Taylor and I got a gps. Anyone who knows me at all can vouch that this little machine is going to change my life.

My favorite game so far is the fencing game.. I love playing it as well as watching. Haven't tried boxing yet... I have a feeling that will be my next fav.

Most fun all of us have had together in a long time :)

Check out my mom's arm muscles! whoa

lookin' niiice

My mom double bags EVERYTHING.. will always be a mystery

How can you resist that face?

This year my mom got an extension on the kitchen as her major Christmas present.. but I think she might have liked these slippers dad gave her more

The end. See you in 2010!! Craziness.

Oh... and wedding photos to come! So excited!

About Me

My photo
Tia Nicole Photography has launched this summer after many practice photo sessions and the encouragement of some dear friends and family ("Life Through Tia's Lens" was a recommendation of my good friend, Kristin, who has been an avid supporter the whole way through!). This blog has documented the process from the beginning and also dates back to some older rantings during grad school and football seasons. Feel free to get to know me and my work. I like to focus primarily on natural shots, true emotions and beautiful landscapes. I also absolutely adore kids and pets so you will find a good bit of my work in these areas. Feel free to contact me anytime! I love blog comments!

My pup, Rylynn!
