teeny & tiny

it's the teeny tiny things in life that shine.

Berlin Photographer | Connecticut Family Photos | The Shea Family

I remember the first time I met Ellen – well “met” her! She messaged me on Facebook before we moved out to Connecticut last year. I instantly realized she is a warm, friendly lady who is so in love with her family. So when she asked me to take some pictures for their holiday card – I instantly penciled it in my calendar and was so looking forward to photographing them in their home. Especially the two days before Christmas.

What I didn’t realize was that the Shea’s love their family so much that their Christmas tree is a living display of tokens of their family life together. Kevin & Kelly’s baby shoes, the box that held the ring Jim proposed to Ellen with, and handcrafted ornaments with their family Christmas pictures from the past 20-something years makes their Christmas tree like a living scrapbook.

I so enjoyed photographing this family – and I know one of these images will be on their Christmas tree next year as well! And see the Shea’s page for more photos at  — thesheas.aliciasturdy.com

So, what is your favorite ornament on your tree? Mine is my little Starbucks mug from 2009, my favorite holiday cup design they’ve had since I’ve been drinking Starbucks.
