I love fall and I always seem to take a lot more pictures in the fall, this is probably the chief reason I start hunting pictures this time of year. I have read all the ways you are suppose to get kids to smile and work with the natural light, and blah blah blah, but really if my two are looking my direction I am going for it. Chicken and bean can be really accommodating for pictures and generally I can get a few good shots out of 10, but they are never enthused to go take pictures in the leaves. We tried once with the dogs and that was almost an animal planet special on how to take out the kids the dogs were so unruly. Most of our family lives far away so I know the pictures are appreciate, I just want to show a great picture and have it not be like everyone else. I never know quite what to do with Christmas cards and leaving myself plenty of time to think about it always seems good. Until it is well into November, I have no ideas and I need something.
Who know what will come picture wise in the next weeks that will save me. Right now I am thinking of dressing them up and dragging them to the park. Maybe a Christmas camera would make it all better. How do you set up and decide on your Christmas cards and holiday pictures?
When I think about these things I always think about how the food networks and crafts shows shooting all the holiday stuff in the summer and imagine someone with a professional photographer in their house 4th of July weekend in thick holiday sweaters.
