Mono and I take our own Christmas card picture. We decide on the look we want, pick the location and what outfits we want to wear and venture out to take a lot of pictures. I take a few pictures to see what angles I want, and then set the camera on timer on the tripod and snap away! Last year it was fun, stress-free, and easy peasy. This year? A bit different. It was quite the challenge. Two babies and a dog! Thankfully my Dad came along so he could help hold one of the three babies while I set things up. He ended up taking the pictures for me instead of dealing with a wobbly tripod on uneven ground. Everyone told us how lovely our card was, and each time I would laugh at the memories of the more candid shots Dad picked up on. I thought I'd share a few.
We dealt with people in the background and the boys not looking at the camera.
We had crying babies and a Momma that looked a bit crazy trying to calm them down.
Blowing hair out of my face was the only struggle I had to deal with on my own. The guys all had it easy with their short 'dos.
We had little boys all sticking their tongues out!
We took turns blinking and dealing with too much light in certain faces.
We took many pictures. Many. And we ended up with a few really nice choices.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
