Majer’s Family Portrait
This is the last part of their Majer’s Moments Series–capturing everyday moments of living and working in Baltimore city. We had a quick outing at the American Visionary Art Museum. The weather was a bit cold, but the sun compensated for it.

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.
