so of course I brought my camera.
As they were running to the car I noticed this:
Yep, matching sweaters. I’m not sure why but they all decided they wanted to dress alike. Of course, you know where my mind went right? Beach+Sunny Day+Matching Sweaters=Holiday Card.
I never plan a holiday picture because whenever I do, they’re terrible. All of my cards have had random snapshots of kids because that’s when they look best. You’d think I would have learned my lesson by now, but no. I insisted on beach pictures, ignoring the tornado like wind and hoping for the best. We wandered down the path
and noticed a patch of sea grass right on the edge of the fence that would be PERFECT. I sat them and shot away. Did I mention the tornado like winds and the subsequent sandstorm? Yeah.
They were troopers, but of 132 pictures we got nothin’. Here are some of the highlights! Enjoy for fun Friday.
|Good to see Spidey came to the shoot|
|Can you hear her? Her smile says, “For the love of all things holy mom put down the damn camera.”|
|Big kids covering eyes, G escaping to his happy place.|
|Now they’re just pissed. These might be the “I will cut” you faces.|
|Yep, not even trying anymore. Rude. “Security.”|
|Shoulda just stuck with park pictures, clearly that’s what I do best.|
