Christmas Morning Observations

How was Christmas at your house?

Ours was great, and just like the Christmases of 2014 and 2013, these two were so excited for the day to finally arrive.  They were dying to open presents at 7 am.  But, I managed to hold them out until 10 am when the morning light was just right.

Here are a few highlights.

The Highlight of my Entire Year and Life Lately

I've been a bad blogger.  I haven't taken the time to post an update in at least a month!  Not even to share that I was published in People Magazine! Which is pretty exciting.  Though I did instagram that news...immediately upon publication...(You should probably follow me @kyrani on Instagram to get fact action updates!)

Anyway, I don't know if I have any good excuse here.  Mostly I'm not "feeling it"...which I guess is another way of saying, I have no ideas!!  Or I've been quite busy. (Does anyone else feel the same this time of year?  Where did the time go?!)  All in all, November was a pretty awesome month. I mean I was published in People Magazine! That's definitely the highlight of my 2015.  What's been the highlight of your year?

Anyway, here is a snippet of what's been happening lately in these parts.

First off, I had SO much fun shooting the beautiful (and genuinely lovely) American Idol alum Kim Caldwell and her adorable new baby girl, Harlow, for People Magazine:

Hallowe'en happened and my warrior boys were out in full force.  Plus, when your husband walks round with a Storm Trooper helmet, a J.Crew shirt and a beer, he can't expect NOT to be photographed!

I shot this gorgeous face.  Oh to have that 22 year old skin again!

I also dabbled in a little food photography in my kitchen.  Those pomegranates!  A pain to eat but beauties to shoot...

And how on earth did this happen?  I shot these a couple of weeks ago and I cannot get over how grown up my boys are looking!
