Christams Card fiasco
With Christmas just 10 days away, I thought I better get my act together and get my Christmas card made. Usually, I have my cards out by the 1st of December but this year we have been way to busy. This week I came up with an idea and purchased the children beautiful sweater vest and Addy a holiday sweater. This morning rolled around and the weather was just blah. However, I have heard many photographers say that they perfer the over cast day. I got the littles bathed and dressed and told the bigs if they weren't dressed they could forget about having Christmas. One 13 year old insisted his hair despite sticking up looked fantastic. We got in the car and went to the location. I first took individual photo and then proceeded to try to take a group photo. No one would cooperate. Out of 60 shots in various configuations not one worked out. Addy really didn't want anything to do with the whole process. She would not sit on their laps and she wouldn't allow them to hold her. We tried having her standing, but she would not look at the camera. It just wasn't meant to be this year. In the end this is what I came up with and it is what it is. To tell you the truth, I knew it was going to be difficult and I would perfer a root canal than to try an re-shoot the photos! That being said, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
