Christmas in Aruba {Palm Beach, Aruba}

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays!  We have had a whirlwind December, and I can't believe that Christmas is over!  And now I can't even blog about all the awesome Christmas stuff we've been up to, cause at this point, let's face it, it's old news.  And heading into the Jan/Feb/Mar duldrums, kind of depressing.  So perhaps I'll show you some sunny, lovely Christmasy pictures from Aruba.  How does that sound?

By the way, I went to Aruba expecting that all the festive decor I saw would be unique, but no.  It was all sun-bleached evergreens and tinsel.  So weird.  There were a few gems, and these are some of my favorites (with the typical, totally out-of-context examples at the very end.)  I've never really been anywhere warm during Christmas, but I wonder if Christmas decor like that in warms places everywhere?  Chime in, Californians!

C {New York City Maternity Portraits}





How gorgeous is this friend of mine? She was such a natural in front of the camera, and I love that we made the shoot work, despite the weather.  I love photography because it really keeps me on my toes, and I never really know what to expect when I head out the door for a session.  We shot in the rain (and the five short minutes when it wasn't raining) and then found the grotto of a beautiful church. I love the result.
