Christmas is here! By that, I mean it is finally here to celebrate with our young ones! Before we had children most of us have become a bit jaded in the whole Christmas holiday process, dragging our feet to the finish line to the New Year. It all seems to change once we have our first child. We want to show them all the wonderful, glittering and fantastical things out there that we had celebrated as kids. Our inner child has been awakened, we have stars in our eyes again!
In this scene I really wanted to generate a feeling of glowing warmth, yet keep its simplicity, which I come to realise is very difficult! You can get horribly excited with decorations and go completely overboard! It all came together in the end though with a beautiful glowing warmth to my scene, and I managed to capture a wonderful moment with my own son.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
