taking a little break from the house tour to talk about how I have a major love/hate relationship with taking pictures.
We took a moment Saturday to grab some shots to use for our Christmas cards.... and I didn't like hardly any of them.
Not because they aren't good pictures (after all, my dad took them), but because I didn't really think through them too well before we took them (which is insane because I am usually
a little bit a major over-thinker)
I wanted to go take another picture by the water tower in my home town, since my favorite wedding picture was taken there. I thought it would be cool to have another one there, two years later with Sawyer.
Well the weather didn't corporate since it was SO windy and sunny we squinted for every picture.
|see, I have no eyes.|
AND our reds don't match (Yes, i realize how petty this is)
But I did get three that I like.
But wait, my Christmas cards say "merry christmas from our new home"... so what sense does it make to have the water tower from our old town in the background?
Also, could my shirt be any more wrinkly? And why did I think red was a good idea for me?
And these two, mainly because it is just too precious of our little bug and Josh needs more pics of just them two.
So now I am stalking Pinterest for better ideas for posing and such, since I didn't even think about how I need the picture to be close together and close up to fit our Christmas cards the first time.
These are my favorites...
|except maybe we could have Sookie in one our laps since we obviously don't have a second childvia|
|this is my absolute favorite, and probably what we will go with, close up and "homey" so it would fit with the "Merry Christmas from our new home" theme|
|this is a close second favorite since I could hide all those body parts of me I don't really care for behind Joshua haha|
