Decorating the Christmas Tree, 2009

The previous picture is one of my favorites of Sonya ever... it captures the moment for me because i can remember exactly how carefree and joyfully she was dancing to some silly Christmas tune on the radio. For me that's the essence of photography - capturing the emotion of a moment in life.

Kate very intent on descrambling a major knot in some decorations...
