I’ve always been a huge fan of Christmas. Normally, our weekends are packed with festive plans and it’s the most sociable month of the year.
But as we all know, things are a little different this year. Covid has forced us to see the beauty of home, make the most of the simplest of plans and appreciate the smaller things in life.
That, for me, what was this Christmas was all about.
The run up to Christmas consisted of countless walks with friends and taking our time to decorate the house, instead of the mad rush that normally occurs!
Each year, it gets more difficult to know what to get for my Grandad. After family, his one true love is my parent’s dog, Bertie.
Therefore, I chose to capture a black-background fine art portrait for him and frame it… thankfully it turned out to be the perfect gift.
Although we weren’t blessed with a white Christmas Day, Boxing Day was a very different story. We woke up to a huge dumping of snow which meant our week of suddenly became snow centric.
Since it looks as though our ski trip won’t happen this year, we did our best to bring the Alps to us…from snow ball fights to sledging and toasting s’mores on an open fire.
We were lucky that our Christmas went from slightly drab to a winter wonderland overnight!
