We did our first session with Courtney Garrett Photography back in March when she first started doing sessions. You can see those photos here. I was so impressed with her raw talent, that when she announced her Christmas mini's in late July, I jumped on the chance. Literally was sitting on the beach at Gulf Shores, and I was like SIGN ME UP.

I'm so thankful she decided to rent out the Christmas tree farm, because I will cherish these pictures forever. The memories of the kids being obsessed with the fake snow. The first time we ever heard Carter shout "I TOLD," because it was 40 degrees outside and the sun was setting. The way he kept saying "Truck, Truck, I drive." The way McKinlee just loves her Daddy and it shows. I love her laugh and smile and the innocence of her age. I love this season that we're in. Man it's hard, but it's worth it. They make us laugh and feel so thankful that God trusted us to be their earthly parents.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
