Hey look who it is, my own family. I feel like there haven’t been photos of my family, especially with me in them, in a long time on my blog. If it wasn’t for my amazing husband, there probably wouldn’t be these either. December is a super duper busy month for me with my business, and add to that the additional things with the family to prepare and enjoy the holidays, I did not have the time to set up any family portraits with another photographer. I didn’t have a chance to get any special outfits for all of us either. We knew we needed to do a Christmas card, especially since I didn’t send one out last year. So, my fabulous husband Dave told me lets just do it, lets just bring your remote for the camera and go. I told everyone to just pick out an outfit they liked and not to worry if it didn’t match the others or go with a certain color scheme and then out the door we went. Honestly, it was brutal. With my camera on the tripod, I couldn’t see when everyone was looking or what kind of faces they were making, or even use my favorite lens (because I was missing the part that connects it to the tripod). We all got pretty frustrated and I was sure we didn’t get many good photos, except for the few that me or my husband took. I was even a little unhappy with the ones I ended up choosing for my Holiday card because I am such a perfectionist. But looking back at these now, I am more then happy with them. I am so glad we did them and I have photos of all of us. We may not have done it the easiest and most stress free way (Like hiring a photographer) but we have these photos and they show us how we are, crazy faces and all.
