This lovely family came from different parts of Texas to enjoy Christmas in the snow. It was a marvelous family reunion and, like most families who live apart, they don’t get to see each other often enough. They wanted Durango Photographers to capture some Christmas images while they were here. They also did some skiing and snowboarding while they were here.
They were staying at Durango Mountain Resort, also known as Purgatory Resort and Ski Area. We did some of their portraits in their suite, and then went outside. There were 3 families with 6 adults and 3 children. They were all dressed in pretty holiday colors.
The little 2 yr old boy had been sick and wasn’t feeling all that great, but he cooperated (sometimes). The whole family was so sweet because they were freezing and I continued to torture them so they would have some beautiful images to remember their time here in Durango. After the portraits were done, the kids went out again and we got some cute shots of them playing around. Unfortunately, the snow was too dry to do much with snowballs or building a snowman, but fun anyway.
They were very happy with their portraits and will have them as great memories to pass down to their kids. Heirloom portraits are a wonderful thing for people to enjoy for their entire lives and for generations.
Thank you for reading this post.
