The warm sunshine welcomed us as we strolled the beach just days before Christmas. A time to document the whole family together for the holidays, we soaked up the sun, talked, and even laughed a little.

The Alexopolous family is a beautiful bunch, and were the most wonderful family to end 2018 with. I’m so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with them and enjoy such a gorgeous day outside.

Hanging out with them was like a joke I couldn’t get, but in the best way. These three, brother and sisters, were a highlight to soon-to-be dreary day. Full of laughter, which was perfect even though I wasn’t in on it, because I took so many beautiful photos of them together. These photos, a gift for their parents, how beautiful a gift at that. You can probably tell my favorites are truly of their happiness, but I did my best to pull some regular smiles too.

We came together on Christmas Eve, just as they all came from their respective, distanced homes, in time to document their time all in the same place. The sky broke just that morning, and just after the next session I had here, the rain came pouring down. I really couldn’t have asked for better, it was perfect actually.

I hope your Christmas and New Year was wonderful, you guys! And that your parents are pleased with the images I’ve taken. All the best!

The sweetest family visited me during the holiday sessions at the Gig Harbor cabin, along with their newborn Peyton. It was a warm, cozy, festive scene just right for this Christmastime baby boy!

Thanks so much Fast family, for coming out to see me. Peyton is one lucky little guy!
