last year it was blizzarding by this time. a few days ago i was wearing shorts. we had a white christmas last year and this year is far from that. with that said, because of all of the snow - i was able to get some awesome pictures of my brother and i last year for my grandparents for christmas.
my grandma is a cluttered un-matchy decorator who would frame and hang up a receipt from walmart if you told her it was a present.
knowing this, i like to go above and beyond just so i can give her something special that she'll remember every year. like, going to the lengths to plan a photoshoot, taking time to edit the pictures, find a nice and big collaged wooden frame, and get the pictures printed out all neat-like - so she can have something classy and meaningful to open on christmas. she raved about the pictures i did last year for weeks, hopefully this year will be no different.
and as for my grumpy ole' grandpa, i think he gets excited to see that there are well done and nicely thought out decorations on the wall other than walmart receipts, cereal boxes, and outtakes of pictures where half of the people in them have their eyes closed.
yes, for all you wondering, i have a 7 year old brother. my mother decided she would only have children 12 years apart. i love the little bugger to death. getting him to take pictures is not so easy though.
my little bro likes to play with my camera. the kid has a pretty good eye.
thus, photocred: shawn jacob, the little man.
i'm excited to be home with my family. i wouldn't trade them for the world.
i hope everyone has a merry, merry christmas. and super duper amazing holidays.
