Laughing Out Loud

Yesterday afternoon I primped and dressed my littles up for their annual holiday photo shoot.  Aaron and I were not in the photos this year which would have made things simpler except that I decided to play photographer.  Corralling my own children is always a challenge but adding a camera and an expectation to the mix is asking for trouble.  I simplified the entire endeavor by taking them to a nearby park and pretending that parked cars and light posts are the new thing in backdrops.

They didn’t do too bad and I walked away with five useable photos.  What I didn’t expect were some awesome outtakes!


This one could have been a great photo…until you look at the little one who looks like she is witnessing something very unsettling.


Or this gem, where I captured everyone with their eyes CLOSED- what are the chances of that?!

Part of me is really tempted to use the scary eye shot for our Christmas card, just because it makes me laugh!

    So funny, the captions you could do with the first one.

    IF I do cards this year, I’ll just do the kids and yes, it’s quite a job when I’m behind the camera. I never look forward to it.
