Gorgeous smiles, glowing love, and the antics of a happy toddler are a recipe for beauty. Last week I sat at my desk listening to Christmas tunes and curating this gallery, and I found myself wondering if I had ever felt so festive and jolly at work.

This family is so much fun, and this little girl is so well loved. I had so much fun with her, capturing her explore the world around her and gleefully appreciate the attention of her mom & dad. To add just a touch of Christmas to this family session, we kicked things off a jingle bell wreath, which this little one seemed to quite enjoy.

I think smiles and affection from Mom & Dad are her favorite things.

As the sun began to fade and the grey skies shared sprinkles, this family was still radiant.
