I had these grand ideas for our Christmas card pictures. I was going to dress the girls in cute outfits. I was going to take them to this neat little path tucked away in a corner of our subdivision. I was going to lay down a fuzzy blanket and get a bunch of adorable pictures of the two of them.
I was going to have to spend HOURS pouring over the amazing images just to choose two or three.
It was going to be PERFECT.
That was fun.
My vision flew out the window, and I realized that we were not actually going to get anything “posed.” So I just let them do whatever they wanted to do, and I ended up with three really cute shots for our cards. Which is kind of how it should have been since I actually never do posed photography, and I don’t know why I thought it would work now.
I won’t share the main image until after the cards have been sent out, but I was pleasantly surprised with the final result.
By the way? Those shoes are two sizes too small on Emma, but the only shoes that currently fit are pink and sparkly. Just keeping it real.
Anyway, this whole trip ended with both girls crying at the playground and me laughing at myself for thinking it would turn out any differently.
Remind me next year to start working on holiday pictures around mid-September.
