Christmas in Downtown Buda | Lifestyle Session

Tis the season for joy and merriment! I had a very exciting Christmas season and definitely got wrapped up in the hustle and bustle. It’s hard to not get caught up in all the festivities! Between regular everyday life and the additional travel plans, parties, gift shopping, and baking, it’s nearly impossible to get swept up and forget to reflect on the goodness of this season. Christmas season not only gives us a chance to celebrate the birth of Jesus, but it also gives us a chance to reflect on where we’ve come this past year.

I wanted to do a Christmas themed shoot just for fun and to help me get into the holiday spirit! I’m so lucky I met up with Sally and Priscilla for this shoot! We explored Downtown Buda making use of their super cute downtown and Christmas decorations. This super cute best friend lifestyle shoot was a great way to start my holiday vacation.
