Dear Allie,

I've wanted to have a session with you for a long time now, and both our dreams finally came true when you won the PEACH kickoff giveaway for a free Christmas session! Every year I make it a goal to create the most magical Christmas world I can think of. I feel like these sessions are a culmination of everything I've learned throughout the year, and wonderful Allie, yours was not an exception!

From your stunningly gold Badgley Mischka dress to your perfectly curled hair, you looked exactly like royalty enjoying a Christmas fit for a princess. You were the ruler of your kingdom, but it was such a soft strength, making it one of the best things a human can have.

But knowing that your grandmother had a very similar picture of herself to the one below, made what we created even more meaningful. Because maybe when you have grandchildren, you'll be able to show them these two photos and it'll be such a timeless keepsake that they'll deeply admire.

And on a funnier note, I honestly don't think I've seen someone enjoying ice cream so much (kudos to Henry's Homemade Ice Cream!) Your joy was truly infectious and it reminded why I love being a portrait photographer so much.

But through all the funny and serious and crazy moments of your Christmas photo session, your inner beauty shone through every image. Never forget how strong you are, but remember your soft spirit.
