Fall/Winter Family Photoshoot

11 Dec

Two weeks ago we took family pictures for our Christmas card.

All of our yearly family photo shoots consist of me putting my camera on a tripod then activating the self timer or using my wireless remote.  So it can get very tricky at times.

This one is good, but Rory’s eyes aren’t open.  These things I won’t really know until we get home and I load them onto my computer.


Every year we get at least one of my running to get into the shot.  I find these to be hilarious.  I really wanted to make this our Christmas card picture.


This one was kind of cute, and kind of weird.  Delilah is just a torso.


Oh and behind us over the hill is a homeless man sleeping.  I just positioned us so he is not visible.

This one of just Joey and I is nice, but it wouldn’t work for the card. People will wonder what we did with our children.


Ah, this one will work nicely for our Christmas card!


So I added it to a card I whipped up in Photoshop.


Yeah, I drew those snowflakes by hand.  I was going for a chalkboard look.  The Merry & Bright was a font, I did not draw that.

And some more pictures from the photo shoot.




We took all these pictures at the World War II Memorial downtown on the river.  So we looked for Joey’s grandpa’s brick.

And lastly, the girl just wants to dance.


That was our adventures of our Christmas card photo shoot.

    These are just darling. And what a beautiful day to take pictures. Of course I love the people in your pictures-you can’t go wrong with your precious family.

    except the brick was for WWII service. But that’s ok.

      Thanks for the correction. I was busy taking pictures and chasing kids, I for some reason thought it was Vietnam. Change made!

    Amy, you are hilarious. I laughed so hard at the picture of you running! I could just hear the whole thing happening. That would have been the best Christmas card ever!!…for me anyway! 🙂
