I Always Keep My Promises, Burnham Style

This afternoon, I had the greatest pleasure of finally shooting the Burnham Family's Christmas Photos. I was beginning to worry this shoot would never take place. "Why?" you ask. And you know you were asking. I'll tell you why. Mrs. Burnham, aka My Creative Director and Close, Personal Friend, is normally very camera shy, as is Mr. Burnham - so convincing them that this really was a good idea took a tad bit of work, not a lot, just a tad. Then there were the weeks of wardrobe contemplation (though I have to admit, I am anal retentive so this would have been difficult for me as well), several borderline-manic text messages, a shopping expedition (there's nothing I won't do for a great shoot, and a friend), and last minute scheduling changes due to my pending vacation.

It was all worth it:

And this post would be completely incomplete if not for this next picture.

Subject Beware: it's now policy that if you LET the photographer take the picture, and especially if you redo the act to LET the photographer take the picture, you can't COMPLAIN about the picture. M...kay?

That is my rule and will forever be the rule! You set yourself up for the photo to be shared if you pose :) I love these pictures and I'm so grateful to have you as my personal photographer!

Awwww. My friends are so cute. Don't make fun of the wardrobe contemplation, I did the same thing, I might have even been worse! You had so better keep that rocking horse picture for future blackmail. I might have to get myself a copy....
