an afternoon with the thalman family

the holiday season is all about spending time with the ones you love: creating memories, sharing loving moments. when ashley thalman asked if i would come document an afternoon with her family- i was thrilled! they were going to go get their christmas tree and then come home to set it up.

first of all, her family is so adorable. she has two sweet little kids who obviously love their mommy and daddy very much. her husband, like most husbands, wasn't thrilled with the idea of being in front of the camera- but despite his reservations he photographs really well. and well.... what can i say about ashley besides the obvious? she's charming, sweet, beautiful and someone i'm fortunate enough to call a friend.

i will be posting more photos from this magical afternoon soon. but for now, here are some of my favorites from the day as it drew to a close... (all of the images were taken with ilford 3200 b&w film)

btw- we are having ashley take our family photos today and i am EXCITED!!! :)
