The period between Christmas and the new year means taking a short break from regular sessions and editing to deep clean and organize the studio. For my kids it means winter break from school and fun times with friends. Today I was knee deep in cleaning products and file folders when my daughter and her friend came down and asked me if I would do a quick photo shoot with them.  The cleaning could wait.  There's no way I was going to pass up that opportunity!  I hope when they look back at these photos years from now they will remember the fun memories made over winter break 2012.  Best buddies forever.
