The one obligatory photograph that you HAVE to take each year is that of your awesome and ever changing family!
If you are lucky to see yours once a year, great! If not, then you better treasure those moments like it’s the only thing that truly matters, because trust me with family spread across multiple continents, family time is precious!
So, 2018, brought a new and colorful session courtesy of my broken tripod (a light stand works just as well) and timer function. To bring some color and messiness to our playful family, I ordered a handful of plain white shirts and a pack of multicolored flour or dust that is also used during the famous Holi Hai Festival in India and consequently around the world.
Total amount in materials: around $50
Memories created and captured: PRICELESS!
My fearless sister in law and her family went first…
Second, were mom and dad in law, who really seemed to enjoy themselves…
Last, but not least, were Garrett and I with my mom in law in charge of the camera (pretty good for a newbie!)
At last, when the sun was practically behind the mountains we quickly got together for a messy yet silly and fun family shot.
What will the 2019 Hohn-Miles-Ponomareva family picture entail? You’ll just have to tune in to find out!
