On Sunday I gave a full day seminar to a great group of wonderful and talented pro photographers.  This included a live photo shoot of a high school senior (ok...she WAS younger than that-but Ali worked out great!).  Here are three senior pictures that I took of her during the live hands-on demonstration.

Having got to see images from both "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation", got me thinking about what is my most favorite Christmas movie.  Elf and The Santa Clause I think top my list, how about you???
