I love traditions and I love the holidays. So it was only natural that an annual Thanksgiving trip has become one of the most anticipated things of each year in my world. As each trip passes, new little rituals are added, including a girls’ Napa trip and now this - a Christmas card family portrait sessions with my fam, the Schramms. (Let’s not forget the one month of discussing outfits with Em prior to this shoot).
The Schramms’ property backs straight on to one of Redding’s most popular spots, Lema Ranch, and so seeing as it takes all of two minutes to walk across the backyard and on to the trails, we didn’t go looking for a different location again this year.
Not pictured? Britt and Audra, two great friends, who came along as hype girls and made sure we were all well fuelled with a jazzy list of Christmas favourites and endless dance moves. It may be June now but let’s just say discussions have already begun for this year’s shoot.
