Capturing the perfect Christmas card photo is on a lot of folks “to do” list and it was on mind until I decided to let the girls take control. In the past we’ve sent out a Family newsletter but now thanks to Facebook and the fact that we live on the east coast (Texas & Alaska previously) and see our family more often, I opted for a simple picture card. Plus I’d gotten some on clearance during last year’s after holidays sales! **I HEART SALES**
This is the photo they chose to go on the Christmas Cards this year! Yeah, I know most often people want a “perfect” photo with everyone dressed and sitting pretty. But they begged for a goofy, silly, funny photo and I had too much fun shooting them. I’ve learned that if I let them just be themselves and pose at will I get much better cooperation and at least one “perfect” shot.
This one was a close 2nd.
So with all of that I’m glad my girls chose the silly photo. You never know one the receivers may be having a bad day only to open the card and have a good giggle to lift their spirits a little.
