holiday *b* list…

in photos. That’s the plan today. I have been working away on the house and slowly getting it in shape. I was going to go Christmas shopping today, but I decided that I will feel much better about a day away shopping, if my house is in order and my Christmas cards and invites are in the mail. I just designed the invites, so they still need to be printed. Hopefully, all the things that I’m planning to buy for gifts will still be available and not sold out later this week : )

Here’s a little photo *b* list of little Christmas vignettes that I have done so far:


img_3445-web My Grams’ Santa salt and pepper shakers. I love to put her things out all the time, but during the holidays it seems especially wonderful to have things that remind me of her and her lovely home.


img_3451-web I love how this shot turned out. You can see a little of the wreath I love so much that Miley made me (and each of the bagels) last year.


img_3452-web This gorgeous floral arrangement was delivered yesterday by Holly of Avant Garden. I wish you could smell it! It smells divine! Holly does beautiful work, if you need a centerpiece for the holidays, give her a call! This arrangement was a birthday gift from my awesome, thoughtful friend Lin. I love my friends.

img_3454-web I’m really pleased with the new wall grouping in the living room. Much more organized than the past version. PLUS, I was able to incorporate one of my new favorite canvases (upper right).

Things are finally coming together! I can’t wait to share more…but I’m not quite ready…I need help hanging a few more things and I just can’t bear to bother Tom with it. He’s been getting up at 3 am for the past few weeks because their business is super busy. He has done so much already…but maybe tonight, if I feed him a yummy dinner? : )

I have another family session to share peeks of. I spent time last year with Tom and his Mom taking senior photos, so it was fun to meet the rest of the family and see their beautiful home. They live on one of the most beautiful pieces of land I’ve ever seen!




img_2673-web There are so many details that I love about this shot. The toothlessness, the squeezable little brother sandwiched between the twin sisters, the pop of color on the girls….scrumpcious!




img_2746-web I’ve photographed a number of sets of twins and moms often tell me that it’s easy to get in the habit of photographing them together and forget about getting individual shots….so I try to always take individual shots of twins.

img_2749-web I encourage sassiness.

img_2784-web How could anyone look at this sweet face and not smile?

img_2789-web Tom definitely has his mom’s stunning blue eyes! I hope you like your peeks!

Thank you for all the birthday wishes yesterday! It was a good day. I am handling the big number fairly well today : )Much of that is due to encouragement from all of you!

God bless!

Keshet - LOVE the home vignettes! I want to come live in your house:)

Judi - Happy Belated Birthday Becky! May you find your fifties to be filled with even more abundant blessings than ever, and may I just say you certainly do not look 50!!

Sherry G - Your decorations are gorgeous and this photo session is one of my favorites of yours to date. I don’t even know the people of course but I feel their personalities through the portraits. They are something very special. Thanks for sharing your talent and inspiration.

kim henkel - Becky,
You and your home are beautiful! Happy belated birthday too. Love that watch and sweet card!
