Holiday Photography & Ornaments

Yesterday, my fiance was watching football with his buddies, so I decided to do some present-wrapping and a little bit of photography. Photography is something I've been getting back into lately, and the holidays are the perfect time of year to work on my skills. There is an abundance of beauty and cheer everywhere. I'm actually hoping to get a new camera for Christmas!

Here are some of the photos I took:

The first presents under the tree.

Sweet angel ornament.

Beaded ornament.

We didn't have any ornaments or decorations of our own this year, as I discussed in this post, but luckily my parents let us borrow an old tree and some ornaments. The tree actually belonged to my grandma, and it is from the '60s. The ornaments are familiar decorations that I grew up with at my parents' house.

Do you have any favorite ornaments you like to hang every year?


  1. Love the photos! I secretly wish to collect Eiffel Tower ornaments for my tree but my finace would freak! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm sure you could sneak a couple Eiffel Tower ornaments onto the tree hehe :)

  2. Very cool! I have a photography challenge on Thursdays - please add it to this. This week is GREEN! <3

    1. I will be out of town this Thursday! I will have to remember to add it when I get back! <3
