Thanksgiving, a little past due

December 8, 2012

My momma hosted her family’s Thanksgiving dinner, just like every year; except this year, it was at my parents’ new house! As usual, I didn’t spend as much time taking photos as I would have liked, looking back, but I did spend time with my family, in the moment. It’s definitely something I don’t have to work on (for myself) too hard, and for that, I’m grateful. Some photographers as too busy capturing their lives instead of actually living it.

My little second cousin in all his cuteness!

Believe in or not, it was warm enough to swim on Thanksgiving Day…that is, if you have a heated pool like my parents do!

It was little Cameron’s birthday a few days before. Happy 1st birthday, Cam!
