I tried while Michael was away one day after work and bath to get the boys photo for our Christmas card. I had the speedlight, the tripod, and the 50mm. That should have been a recipe for success, it was not. The one photo that they were even smiling in was not a true smile. They had that I am smiling because Mom is yelling and I am getting chocolate when this is all over.

So they were not going to work. I tried again and out of 150 shot, no lie, I actually got one that I liked. Not loved, but really like. Even better were some of the outtakes from the attempt. One of these day I will actually send one of the outtakes as the card.

So here is the shot I managed to get:

Of course I need to include some of the outtakes:

I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas this year!


  1. I love it! The outtakes are hilarious! That last one is so cheesy :) I can relate with my 3 crazies. I separated them this year. Our Christmas card pics are my new header lol :)

  2. I think the one that you got is cute! And it makes both the boys look so old! Wow! Although I must say, the outtakes are HILARIOUS!

  3. I am all about the outtakes. Love those!!!

  4. All the shots are precious. I love the kissing on the verge of wrestling ones. Merry Christmas!!

  5. they are so darn cute, Cara! We got your card a few days ago, and loved it. the outakes are totally the best part! :)
