Shoot and Edit: Holiday Traditions

December 21, 2011 Sarah Coggins

One of my favorite holiday traditions is baking ginger snaps. I let Dylan “help” me last year (mostly play next to me with a bowl of flour – see Day 14). Yesterday, he was much more hands on. Donning his craft apron and standing next to me on a chair. He helped pour ingredients and even do a little hand mixing of the flour & spices (without too much of a mess!).

I decided to use this photo this week simply because it does capture our fun and, amazingly, he really did look at the camera & smile! Maybe I’ve taken too many photos? He definitely shies away whenever he can so this was a big moment. I dislike the darkness and hope to brighten it up during my editing later this week.
