.. when the light is just right, and the subject matter is so beautiful..

a black and white image is the only answer to a question never asked.

i first photographed this trio about 10 years ago.

some things have changed. some things haven’t.

one thing i know for sure that hasn’t changed  is .. how much

they love their mother.

instead of the usual shopping mall  Santa Claus Christmas photos,her parents prefer something a little more subtle for their Christmas cards.

Merry Christmas.

this, i am pretty sure will be Nelson’s first Christmas with a family that is crazy in love with him.

i was explaining to him that we will have a  decorated tree, BUT not one that he can pee on (like he does in the forest).

i also explained that it will be a really fun time with people that love him.

and that he will get to unwrap presents on Christmas morning.

i think he was a bit overwhelmed with the information.

he is as sweet as can be.

he loves to be photographed.
