Christmas Card Photo & Outtakes 2011

Ah, Christmas photos! Probably the only time of year when I make a conscious effort to take family photos. There usually is some kind of theme and coordinated outfits. I set up my tripod and run back and forth behind and in front of the camera. This year I decided to save on some of the running and sought out help from Chloe Gerena Photography. I wanted a beach locale but the weather was not cooperating on the days we had set up and time was running short so we ended up at the lake instead.

I ran to the mall and, in what must have been a record time for the Christmas season, walked out with a shirt for Sun Kissed Boy #1 from The Children's Place in ten minutes flat! Once again, I turned to Shutterfly for my Christmas cards printing needs. Chloe took care of our photos and as it turns out, the outtakes are some of my favorites.

Some of the photos are perfect for gifts...

... or just cute for cards for a any time of the year.

This year's cards are a little late. They might arrive to their destination after Christmas day. But hopefully they will still deliver the joy and happiness intended to pass along.

As a photographer I find it very helpful to get some "silly" shots, especially when kids are involved, in between. It helps liven people up before their faces become stoned with a fake grin and their cheeks hurt from smiling so long. (Plus they are candid and my favorite :) )
