In an attempt to take some holiday photos of my kids I decided to put a little more effort into a shoot I did with them. I took a little bit more care in the outfits I put them in, props and distractions. Well let me tell you, it was almost disastrous. My kids have been fighting a cold/cough for almost 2 weeks. Even in the sun, the temperature had dropped drastically that day. This was probably not one of my better ideas.
But in an attempt to show you all that not all my photos turn out as great as I hope, I thought I’d share the shots from this shoot that I will definitely not be using! Honestly, some of them are pretty funny when I look at them. Especially since I was trying so hard.
And after ALL that, did I really think this wasn’t going to happen?? I wish I had a shot of our devastated faces as we all watched our balloons float away. You would think someone died. I’m laughing right now thinking of how ridiculously sad we felt in that moment.
Seriously though I actually have some pretty awesome ones from this shoot. I’m just not sharing them in this post They’ll probably make it into our Christmas card I send out every year. Want to make sure you get one? Just email me your current snail-mail address fourinthecity (@) gmail . com
