For the most part, I feel like I get pretty lucky with the Christmas card shot. It helps that I don't put the entire family on the card and just grab a snap of the kiddos. This year it only took one afternoon at the beach with Tay and CC to get shots for both of our families. Now that the Christmas cards are out (for the most part), here are the shots that I liked that didn't make the cut.
I was so tempted by the baby bird mouth open pose, my kiddos' favorite look.
This was the second choice shot. I love it, except you can't see the munchkins' faces and that is pretty much required of the official shot. This picture also proves what we have always known, the sun really does shine out of Vera's behind.
