This photo shoot was a team effort, I had asked my Aunt to take some photos of us after our Thanksgiving feast so we would have a current photo for our Christmas card. The camera was in her hands, Greg's hands and my hands. I think the group effort turned out great. I wanted to make sure to be in some photos with my kids and as a family. Yeah, I don't really enjoy being photographed and I'd like to lose some weight before I'm photographed, but my kids won't be saying that when they look back at these photos ("man, I wish mom would have lost 10 pounds before we took those pictures"). They will be saying things like, "remember when we ran around in the backyard and remember how Micah didn't want his picture taken. And remember how dad threw us in the air. Yeah, those were good times." So, here's to capturing good memories, picture perfect or not. And if you have to photoshop a blemish or two I give you permission!! We can put our best face forward right ;)
I hope you take time to have your family photographed this Christmas. Regardless of how you may feel about yourself and how you look, your kids deserve to have you in their photographs. You're in their memories, give them something to look at to help them remember THIS time in their lives!
