Out Takes

Well the time has come to figure out Christmas card pictures.

I dont know if you remember the last time that our family had pictures taken with a photographer. But it didnt go so great. The photographer somehow still was able to get some good pictures. But we had M.A.J.O.R breakdowns by my cute little 2 year old.

We purchased a "good" camera when McKinley was born.. we felt like it was a good investment. It would be an even better investment if I would learn how to use it correctly. But, we decided instead of paying alot of money to a really qualified photographer and not be able to gaurantee the mood of our cute 2 year old.. we would just try our hardest to get a decent picture of the kids.

Decent picture of the kids would equal both with eyes open and smiles on their faces.

I had already pumped myself up that I would probably NOT be successful on the first attempt. It would probably take alot of patience and attempts.

To my surprise, we were able to get a really GOOD one on the first shoot attempt. But we did get some interesting out takes. :)There was some major sibling love happening in our photo shoot. So thankful Jackson and McKinley LOVE eachother. :)

So fun! You'll have to let me know if you figure out any good tricks with your fancy camera! Can't wait to see the one/s you picked for the cards! Cute outtakes.
