That time I thought I could take our own photos

The fact that I am even putting together a weekend post on a Sunday night makes me want to pat myself on the back. I mean I can't even remember the last time this happened. This was the highly anticipated weekend of our holiday card photo. After we got rained out of it last weekend I was hoping for some magic.

I should have known better because I had the absolute recipe for disaster. A hungry, cold (although refused to wear a coat), no-nap toddler. Matched with a husband who was almost equivalent. Which you can imagine where that all left me. Pair that with a broken tripod, not knowing how to cue the remote up to the timer (vs. shutter) and also trying to get a dog to look at the camera. Also if someone can tell me how the heck to get my remote set up to start the 10 second timer I'll seriously love you!

I was so discombobulated - I didn't even have time to take pictures of just P. In fact our whole charade probably produced about 10 photos in totality. And not 10 usable images mind you. So if you happen to be a recipient of our cards...well now you know the backstory. Here are some awful outtakes.

Except for Finn - because he is just perfection <3

  2. Aw you guys look great! Definitely not as bad as you think! And if it makes you feel better, we had a pro take ours and R did his best to ignore the camera and not smile. haha
