One of the fun things about being a photographer is getting to do my family's annual Christmas portrait! This year we were all together in Sequim for Thanksgiving and we snapped a few family shots before sitting down for the big meal. We've had a dog in our family photos for decades now, and this year, instead of my parents' dog (which was back in Anchorage) our new puppy, Dusty, got to take that honor! Dan & I had to take a few family photos of our own budding family, too, though I never got myself together enough to send out Christmas cards this year. People don't care about Christmas cards until you start having kids, though, right?
