PSF -- The Christmas shoot

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



Last year, I somehow got it into my head that I could get some good pics of the girls in their christmas dresses, dress it up in photoshop and make the perfect christmas cards to send out.

It was a simple plan.

So, I got them all dressed up. Set them on the bed. And the following occured.


When one wasn't pouting, the other was screaming.


One would look away, while the other looked at the camera.


and chew on a tissue

I finally decided that no one would appreciate a card that said MERRY FREAKIN CHRISTMAS and gave up.

This year, there will be no joint picture. There will be no fancy dress, just simple snapshots.

that is so precious - Love the crying and pouting picture !! Did you use that one!!

CrackerJacks said...

Ah yes, I've been there too! It's harder as they get older. When they are little and easily amused it's much easier!

Don't give up, try again this year and just snap away at whatever they are doing. You are bound to get a couple good ones.

Please VISIT My PSF. Thank You!

So funny! I think it would've been a great Christmas card--definitely not the usual cards you normally get!

Girl do I feel ya. These look familiar to our recent Christmas photo shoots! What a hoot!

*ROFL* I so understand. We did the same thing and ended up doing TWO DIFFERENT photo shoots - over 100 pictures each and ended up with maybe 1 or 2 that were usable. *L*

BAHahahahahahaha *points and laughs*
I'm sure that picture would look just as cute on christmas cards as any other!

Love in the Afternoon

I think a merry freakin' christmas card would be awesome! I would keep that one on the mantle.

I can SO relate to trying to get a good picture of the kids. So frustrating sometimes!
A Merry Freakin' Christmas card would have been hilarious though!

This year they are bigger and they might cooperate!

Confession: I would LOVE to get a card with one of those shots and Merry Freakin' Christmas on it!!! So FUNNY!!!

I feel your pain! We try to get a family picture every year. Every year it is a challenge! They are adorable pictures even if they are not looking at the camera. :)
