For our holiday card photo this year, I wanted someone to take the picture instead of using the camera timer. Getting everyone to look at the camera and smile is hard enough, trying to time it is even harder. When we had a sleepover at my sister-in-law, Melissa’s, and her husband, Chris’s new home over Thanksgiving, it was the perfect time and place to take our holiday card picture.
We looked around for the best place to take the photo. One of the options was their amazing deck. Doesn’t this look like a perfect place to have a party?
We decided to take the photo in the back yard. Now starts the hard part, getting everyone to stand in one place. It’s a little like herding cats.
Super. Cute. Cats.
This was the picture I initially chose but it felt a little too posed and my Baby had the weird smile she makes when we ask her to smile.
So this year I went a little less traditional and chose a silly photo. I’m not sure what was so funny at the time but I’m so happy Melissa captured the moment.
