ya i know it’s late. but better late than never, which….in almost no other cases really is an ok phrase.

i now feel very guilty if i dont shoot family events, but i also love to, so whatever. christmas is obviously the best time of the year. and the only time i spend days on end with everyone in my family. there are things to be captured.

here are a few moments from my christmas 2011 at home in spokane. some of these images ended up meaning more to me now than i could have known in taking them at the time. it boggles my mind at how special a little camera can be, how it can capture something that will no longer exist. for us, the last Christmas with both of my grandparents being there. these images are very very special to me. christmas, nor our family, will ever be the same.

this is what big brothers are for.
