Christmas Cards

After high school, I had decided not to go to college, and was hired by National School Studios to be a school photographer. After three months of shooting pre-schoolers, I decided that college sounded like a lot more fun. I also decided that I never wanted to photograph children again. The only children I take pictures of are my own.

Starting with our older son Matt's first Christmas, I decided to make a special Christmas card each year. Being a professional procrastinator, many of the photos were shot literally two or three days before Christmas. So instead of sending the cards, we handed them out. It was a lot more fun seeing people's reactions.

These are the ones I consider the best. Only the 1998 snow globe card had any computer manipulation. All of the others were completely done "in camera," with the exception of 1990, which was hand-drawn.
