It is the day before Thanksgiving and I am consumed with gratitude.

I am grateful for having amazing clients, like The T Family (highlighted in this post) who have been reading my blog since I first started one and were clients even when they didn’t live in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I am grateful for the children who let me point my giant clicking boxes (aka cameras) at them year after year.  I am grateful for my husband and three monkeys who not only are okay with me leaving every weekend for client shoots, but who are also my biggest cheerleaders.  I am grateful for the photography community who think I actually contribute to their learning (this blows my mind!) or tell me that I inspire them in some way.  I write my articles for you!

I can go on and on, but will stop short of me turning into a bubbling pile of drippy tears.  🙂

With a full heart and genuine appreciation, let me share some photos from my Thanksgiving shoot of the T Family…

    “who think I actually contribute to their learning” Think?! We KNOW! You absolutely contribute and inspire with every article, post and picture you share!!! I’m pretty sure I can speak for a ton o’ people out there who are truly grateful for you and your work 🙂 Happy Holidays to you and your family Annie!

      Oh, and I was torn between the color vs black and white with that one shot also… I love the contrast you did with the black and white, you can see the little girl on the couch great 😉

    • Oh man! I am blushing. I don’t know what to say, except.. THANK YOU. And happy holidays to you as well. 🙂

    I love this family! And all your photos of the T family over the years, starting with when K was only 3 months old. Thank you!
