I chose an indoor setting, since
Yeah, right. Emma realized quickly that the cat was not in the picture, which was a must for her. "He's a part of our family!" Well, the cat was thrilled at the idea. Just thrilled.
We got several family shots, and then we moved on to the adorableness of kids' feet. There's just something about kids' toes that I love!
I really wanted a picture of the twins together, and I told Amy to keep snapping to catch the not-so-perfect moments. This is what I will remember from our kids' childhood, these moments of their personalities coming through.
I love this shot, it's perfect!
And it was quickly followed up by choking. Cuz, you know, they can't be well mannered for too long!
I don't know where they got the whole choking thing, I mean, where do kids these days learn these things?
Emma wanted a shot with her favorite baby in the world.
And then the princess posed for her solo shoot.
We actually remembered to take a picture of the two of us together. We usually forget, and don't really have a good one. Until now! Ignore the flash on the table, that's something that usually gets removed post-production, and this is an un-edited copy of this shot. I didn't want to ask my darling sister to edit a bunch of pictures right before Christmas just for my blog. Sorry, sis!
My little mini-me.
And of course, the traditional throw-the-child-upside-down shot.
We did get some good photos out of the day, I personally LOVE this one and am planning on framing it on the wall. Drew cracks me up!
And are you ready?
Are you sure?
Well, here it is, folks. The finalized copy of the Stauffer family Christmas card photo!
Only one person was photoshopped and had their head switched from another photo. It's perfect!
Thank you, Amy Parsons, for doing such a great job! I'm going to call you soon at 360-961-7143, or maybe I'll e-mail you at firstname.lastname@example.org for all my photography needs. (And you should, too!)
