After sending last year’s holiday card after the new year, I promised myself I would take care of the card this year right after Thanksgiving. I can usually disguise my chaotic disaster of a life by wearing makeup, having the girls in clean clothes and hair bows, and remembering to pack the diaper bag. When your holiday card shows up after New Year’s, there is no disguising the fact you didn’t have it together enough to send a card out the 30 days between Thanksgiving and Christmas. But that was last year…now it’s this year and a few days after Thanksgiving, we took the photo for the holiday card. I chose to take the picture outside because of the natural light (thank goodness it was warm that day). My Grouchy Husband had to go to work so we had exactly 7 minutes to setup and take the picture (mission impossible?). The setting for the photo was my Princess’ outdoor kitchen.
A test shot. As you can see everyone is in the holiday spirit (haha). Could my Grouchy Husband be any grouchier?
How can he be grouchy holding this cutie pie?
A test shot. A few adjustments need to be made…camera angle, camera zoom, my backside!
It was a miracle, it only took three shots to get the perfect picture. Hooray and Happy Holidays!
A Happy Holiday Card on Time Mama,
