I wanted to go all out this year and schedule an hour session with a photographer at some romantic location. Our outfits would be perfectly coordinated and our pictures would be so great, they would sing or glow, or something. However, I never got around to it. I had ordered a groupon for Christmas cards and ended up running into a deadline for when I had to order the cards. I needed a family portrait ASAP. Everyone that I knew with nice cameras and good experience was busy, so I called a friend from the ward and offered her dinner if she would snap a few pictures with our basic camera. She agreed and came soon thereafter. We took the pictures in our front yard. Here are some of them. She did a great job and got some good pictures without a tripod and with our old click-and-shoot camera.
|Of course she needed a bathroom break as soon as we started taking photos.|
|These two are my favorites. So cute.|
|We were lucky enough to catch the neighbor's tree when the leaves were the perfect color.|
|This is one of her favorite things to do right now.|
