Majer’s Christmas Dinner
This was the begin of Majer’s Moments Series. The Moments Series is about capturing moments and musics notes of our daily life. For the Majers I will be a fly in the wall from special occasions, to outings in the city, and everyday life. To kickoff the project they have invited me to their friends/family Christmas dinner. Their house was filled with delicious food, laughters, and smiles–best present anyone can ask for ever.

With the arrival of our second child and with many friends and close relatives scattered across the country, we felt it was time to get serious about capturing and sharing this moment in our growing family’s life. We had long resisted hiring a professional, tired of seeing the same old and skeptical of anyone’s ability to capture this exciting and fleeting time. We chose Jiho because of his extraordinary ability to be friendly enough to make you entirely comfortable with his presence while also somehow constantly recording what often turn out to be striking, well composed, high quality images.
Because we wanted authenticity, we invited Jiho to hang out with us in our home, in our neighborhood and in our city. He gently urged us to let him photograph our morning routine, pajamas and all, and beautifully captured the ordinary and mundane. These are moments we would otherwise only hold onto in our memories and, we think, will be our most cherished photos.
We hope we will have many more opportunities to work with Jiho in this lifetime.
