Home for the Holidays… as in your place

Eddie: You surprised to see us, Clark?
Clark: Oh, Eddie… If I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation (1989)

For Christmas 2016, we’re leaving the lights off in our studio and only decking the halls we use as a family. Surprise!!
But it’s not because a relative is coming in an RV with a chemical toilet that needs dumping. And thanks for asking.
We’re taking photos this year at YOUR home, because that is where the holiday magic happens. The magic of cousins and siblings cracking each other up, relatives comparing diets, cars, & travel stories, people quibbling over football games and superior technology; the sharing, bargaining, eating, celebrating, reminiscing, and all the other things that make up The A
bject Comedy of A FAMILY CHRISTMAS. 

A Christmas Story (1983)

Ryan and I have fond memories of our Christmases at home as children and now it’s your turn. If you’re wondering about this, here’s a little movie inspiration to help you along. We know Christmas is rarely Currier & Ives…. and so do you. So, let’s have some fun!

The Family Stone (2005)

Meredith: I’m just as good as any of you!
Amy: Maybe better.
Meredith: What’s so great about you guys?
Sybil: Oh, nothing! It’s just that we’re all we’ve got.

Holly Hunter & Robert Downey, Jr. in Home for the Holidays (1995)

Joanne: You’re calling me a freak?
Tommy:  No, I’m calling you a product of baboon lovin’. There’s a distinction.

Iris and Miles in The Holiday (2006)

 Miles: Iris, if you were a melody…… I used only the good notes.

Elf (2003)

Buddy: I’m sorry I ruined your lives and crammed 11 cookies into your VCR.

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

Harry: Hi, it’s me. It’s is the holiday season and I thought I’d just remind you that this is the season for charity and forgiveness. And although it’s not widely known, it is also the season of grovelling. So if you felt like calling me back, I’d be more than happy to do the traditional Christmas grovel.

Die Hard (1988)

John McClane: Come out to the coast, we’ll get together, have a few laughs…

So, here’s the proposal: Get your house decorated (if you want), tree and stockings up, kids dressed, antlers for the dog, etc. and then let us come to your home to photograph your family, friends, neighbors, pets, coworkers and anyone else in your tribe. Be elegant, be campy, be casual, be silly, be seriously festive, it’s up to you and yours. Just make a date and when you call us we’ll help you brainstorm and plan.The fee of $125 is due when you make your reservation. We will provide 5 digital images for families with up to 3 children. This includes the printing rights along with the option to purchase prints, cards, and gifts. Pets and additional children or family members are welcome for an additional $25. Call 336-990-0080 to reserve or email inquiries to mail@pixelsonpaper.net.

Love Actually (2003)

Prime Minister: Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.

One last thought… Christmas is truly a time to capture a memory and moment in time. Photos at your home are often the most memorable and regardless of whatever else is happening in your life – love is what manifests this season.
