Looking back on my photos from this project — and more broadly, looking back on my photos from 2020 and the COVID era — this is one of my favorites. This shot was taken on Christmas during a small family gathering. I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve been able to see my close family fairly often throughout the year while also staying COVID-safe, and I’ve treasured these meetups more than ever. Part of the reason I moved back to Colorado was to spend more time with my parents and my sister’s family, and I’m so glad I did.
Also, dogs are awesome.
