Giver of Immortal Gladness/ Conkins Family/ Fargo,ND Family Photographer by Shannon Heick

This session was just glorious! It was the first little tiny snow of the season and both the mom and I were thrilled when we woke up to snow and texted one another! (I was even happier when it all melted and went away for a month!)  For this wonderfuly styled shoot, it was perfection!

So,  just in case you have been having trouble getting into the Christmas/winter spirit, I think these photos might do the trick! The sweet little girls and the adorable parents! Ahhhh, I can barely stand it!  What is even better, is that I know this mom personally and she is the sweetest, kindest person I think I have ever run across. I have the wonderful joy of sharing an office with her in my counseling practice and let me tell you, she is as beautiful on the inside as these photos show. (Love you EB!) 

So, what we learned in this shoot is when it's cold and blustery....we just add blankets and  snuggles. It's all about the snuggles, people. I promise!

Enjoy these photos and I hope you are discovering the magic of Christmas this season. And I hope that when you feel that magic that you know that magic is Emmanuel. God with us. 

 


Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love

Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day

All Thy works with joy surround Thee
Earth and heaven reflect thy rays

Rejoice, rejoice!
Emmanuel
Your love has come
Here to dwell

What a sweet little session to share from back in October!  The storm day today has me excited for Christmas. Also, the storm day today has me missing the beauty of October. This session was so darn sweet! Enjoy!
