Happy 3rd anniversary to my hubby today!! I can’t wait to share what he made for my gift but it needs one final touch before I can. 😉
When The Bestie and I got matching cameras a year ago about this time, we helped to justify the large purchase with the knowledge that with a great camera we could take our own great photos and avoid paying someone else to do them. Granted, it takes a LOT of training with any camera to get great photos, and I have barely scratched the surface. Kim has been practicing a lot more with her daughter, Mya (great photo subject, of course!), and she’s gotten some great pics. I hope to sit down and learn more and practice over the holiday break, but was glad she’s gotten so good so she could take our family photos!
This was the shortest. photo shoot. ever.
I planned out what we’d wear a month or more in advance, but I did not think much about poses. There’s a historical museum near our house where we had engagement pictures taken, so we chose that location to do these pictures as well. I didn’t need a ton…just enough to have some good options for a Christmas card. We also had a busy day that day and were struggling to fit in a photo shoot as it was, so I planned on us being brief.
Kim arrived with her camera and a stool…so prepared and thoughtful that girl! For a 15-20 minute photo shoot I thought we did pretty good! Here’s what we got, including some of just Faith (she’s a ham) and myself (intending to use for the blog, but we’ll be doing another shoot for that since the sun made me a little squinty-eyed ;)).
And that’s a wrap! Off to finish my wreath so that I can share with you tomorrow!
