Annual Christmas Card Photo Shoot

This year we did the Christmas Card Photo Shoot at the HB Pier. Traditionally we do the card shoot the day after Thanksgiving and this year was no exception. I’ve been planning this year’s shoot for several weeks. Trying to find matching outfits for such a wide range of sizes is no easy task. Since the boys are all about the same size, it is pretty each to get them matching outfits. But it is not easy to get something for Falyn that matches up with Talia and Kayli. I went with white and khaki because those colors are easy to find for all sizes. The kids weren’t too thrilled with my choice of clothing or having to take the pictures at the pier, but I really didn’t give them any choice. They did a good job of cooperating for the pictures, despite the cool windy conditions.

There were about a half dozen other families at the pier also doing pictures. It was a bit of a challenge to work around them to keep their families out of my pictures and my kids out of theirs. I am very happy with the pictures we got and plan to get several of them printed large, probably on canvas, to hang on the wall.

Here’s my favorites:

I also have to share this “out take” of Dan using the reflector to block the wind from the kids while we wait for the sun to come back out.

I’ll post the finished card after I have gotten them in the mail.
