Christmas Card Attempt


Ok I think you get it. I am bummed. Try as I may I was unable to get both kids to look at me together. :( Wes did great and smiled big, looked cute, loved his sister, and basically did whatever I said. Felicity on the other hand was much too busy eating grass, trying to suck on Wes' muddy boot, and basically looking everywhere BUT at the camera. O well I did get a couple super cute shots just not what I really wanted.

I think I am in love with this old barn siding. I just think it looks really neat as a background. What do you think?

I won't mention that Wes let go and with a half twist his little sister ate a mouthful of grass as she tumbled down the hill we were standing on. And in my attempt to keep everyone happy and picture worthy I did not just swoop up the tumbling baby clap my hands and say "Yea! That was fun!" And then reposition them, this time sitting, and continue to shoot away. :)

What a serious little cutie!

These last two are my favorites!

Anyone else having trouble getting the "perfect" Christmas card photo? Any tips??

Those are cute! I can't say I wouldn't do the same swooping and clapping technique! Will have to remember that one. Their outfits look so cute together!

As you know from just talking to me on the phone- YES,I'm having trouble, too! :-) Next year, let's get our photos together to help each other and try starting to get them in, oh, maybe SEPTEMBER OR OCTOBER!!! Hehe. :-)

Sometimes it's best if anyone but the momma take them...at least I've found that with Bray. I can try next week for you, hopefully it's nice and we can go to the park or something. I love the shot of Felicity sitting alone...her face is precious! and yes the barn is an amazing backdrop!
