100,000 Lights

EverafterImages was recently hired to photograph a few spectular homes in the Houston area for Thomas Ginn of Christmas Lights Unlimited. Thomas was looking for a photographer to capture the drama of a beautifuly decorated home. We accomplished this by shooting at "Twilight or Twinight". That is the 10 minutes just BEFORE sunrise or AFTER sunset. Thomas also needed a photographer with a flexable schedule and the willingness to travel across town as needed to get the right photo. This house in the exclusive River Oaks area of Houston has OVER 100,000 lights installed for it's 2010 Christmas display. Santa also took time out of his busy schedule while we were there to greet kids and hear last minute list items.
