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!
