The C Family contacted me a few months ago. They were planning a big family celebration for Christmas. For the first time in years, everyone was going to be home for the holidays. To make the three-day weekend even more special, they would also be celebrating three birthdays and Dan, the family patriarch’s retirement. So yeah, it was a big deal, and they wanted a special way to remember the occasion. I was so honored that they chose me to capture the images from the last day of their gathering.
