Lens Baby Project 52 for December

I can't believe our Lens Baby project 52 photography challenges are already coming to an end.  This year had definitely flown by.  Here are my final 4 images for our challenges.

{Week 49: "Someone I Love"}
This has become one of my favorite pictures...mainly because I have so few of my two looking at me at the same time and smiling into the camera.  A friend was standing behind me and got their attention and I was so excited to capture this moment.  :-)

{Week 50: "Decorated"}
This was more of an impromptu photo shoot.  The kids and I had a great time this particular morning doing an inside Christmas shoot. 

{Week 51: "Sweet"}
The kids and I just had a fun time with this challenge.  :-)

{Week 52:  "A Favorite"}
Being the week of Christmas and all, this challenge has become a "favorite" challenge where I have chosen one of my favorites from a session I'm currently working on.  Crazy time of year for sure...but beautiful family.  :-)

I am very happy that I participated in a Project 52 this year.  For anyone considering doing one for next year, I would highly recommend it.  It was a great creative outlet for me.  And while I admit there were many weeks that I just chose my favorite picture of the week because the week had gotten away from me, there were definitely weeks that inspired me.  Plus it got me shooting consistently every week with a focus which was what I needed to help me grow I think.

Here is my year in review if you would like to see it.  :-)

Merry Christmas from Carrie Saindon Photography

I just wanted to take a moment and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!! 

One of the moms from my mom's group set up this beautiful Christmas scene at the Frisco Heritage Museum for all of us. Thanks Andrea!! 

A few extra of my little guy.  :-)

She really wasn't into pictures at the Heritage Musuem so she decided to let Mommy take some pictures of her once we got home.  :-)

Our Christmas Hug {McKinney and Frisco Area Christmas Photography}

I have been so blessed this year with my photography business.  I have loved being able to do so many fun sessions with such amazing people.  It has kept me busy for sure.  So now that things have slowed down a little for the holidays, I decided to set up a fun Christmas mini session with two of my favorite little subjects.  :-) 
Three year olds are almost always so energetic that you can't really pose them for specific pictures, you just have to capture their personalities.  And I have to say I absolutely love these little personalities and couldn't have hoped for our session to come out any better.  I hardly ever get a picture with both of them smiling and looking at me anymore and to have them hugging, smiling and looking all in one picture is definitely an early Christmas gift for me.   This Momma is definitely a happy Momma.  And of course they were having such a great time with it because they knew every hug was a good excuse to start wrestling.  ;-)
Maybe wishful thinking but I  would love to make this one of our yearly Christmas traditions.  Here is our Christmas hug from last year.   Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you guys get lots of Christmas hugs this year!!

I posted this photo of our Christmas hug in the Clickin Moms forums - such a great forum of photographers.  And I am so honored that they featured it along with so many other great Christmas traditions on their blog.  You can check out all of the great traditions on their blog post here -

Celebrating Friendship {McKinney and Frisco, TX Area Family Photographer}

I was so excited to be able to take family pictures for my college roommate and her family this year.  We have known each other so long.  We went to college together, were a part of each others weddings and have watched as we both have had children and as they grow.  It's amazing to think about how much has changed over the years - definitely a great trip down memory lane for me. 
I hope you guys like your pictures.  And thanks for letting me be a part of it all this year.  :-)
