My family and I were in a local store and saw a huge selection of ugly holiday sweaters and other festive outfits. My wife thought it would be funny to take photos of me in them and post them on Instagram to give people some Christmas laughs.

I thought, if I’m going to be a serious Instagram model (I am hardly ever serious and obviously not a model), I would put my all into the job and not take the responsibility lightly. Everyone has seen how serious Instagram models take themselves, so I needed to show that I was up for the challenge.

My wife and I took about an hour total over two weekends to shoot these outside in our residential neighborhood. We have called it 12 Days of Ugly Christmas.

Our kids were not amused. Hopefully everyone else is!
