Jigsaw Puzzles

We all remember. The first jigsaw puzzle we completed as a family featured a giant cheeseburger! That was about 25 years ago, and here we are still loving jigsaw puzzles today — especially during the holiday season. On Christmas Day, Sarah and Nirali took over when Dan and John stepped away to pick at the sizzling ham just out of the oven; but the girls called the guys back into the room to join in placing the last piece. Lucky us, our son-in-law and daughter-in-law enjoy jigsaw puzzles, too.

The snow fell beautifully all day as the fire roared and sweet Charlotte napped peacefully by the window. I remember the puzzle snowman’s smiling face and glowing lantern, colorful lights on our tree burning bright, and babe in the manger bathed in the hidden bulb’s soft orange light. I think of that wonderful Christmas afternoon and the blessing it was, and I muse:

What are human beings, that you think of them;
mere mortals, that you care for them?
O LORD, our Lord,
your greatness is seen in all the world!
- Psalm 8:4, 9
sounds like an idyllic family gathering. How fortunate you are to have been able to do this - even in 2020. You conjure up a delightful scene.

Such a sweet detail shot of the family spending time together. I’m trying to capture those memories and shots with my family. Love your photos and your narratives.

I always marvel at the perspective you have on life and how you capture it within your photography. I love the moments you share and find them and your words so inspiring. This is such a beautiful photo and wonderful narrative. The lighting is perfect and the composition fantastic, giving rise to a beautiful story all on its own.
