A fair amount of family photos come by way of MY camera. I don't mind this, in fact, nothing makes me happier than to do this for my family. It also gives me constant practice and subjects with whom I can experiment with (poses, lighting, locations etc etc). This year has been no different. On several occasions, I have taken advantage of situations that got my family together. There are young cousins that I only see a few times a year, and I always bring my camera with me because of it. Thanksgiving and Christmas saw an increase in the number of photos I was able to get with all of the kids in the family. The following images are from our Christmas session.
