It’s that time of the year again. The time when we get to figure how to torture our kids (and animals) with seasonal props to make the perfect holiday card. I’m not quite sure what we are going to do this year, but I got some good inspiration and an even better laugh looking at our first year Christmas outtake photos.
I remember Mandy picking out a great reindeer hat from Etsy. Once that yarn hat showed up she had Henry all over the house. They did poses around the bedroom, living rooms, and by the Christmas tree trying to get the background to work correctly and getting the perfect smiling reaction from Henry. I have a roll of about 200 outtakes that make me laugh every single time.
You know, I’m just never a big fan of getting everything together to take a nice round of photos. I’m not really sure why, because it’s not that hard. I remind myself now, especially with Henry, how much I love all the outtakes (and winners) for the rest of my life. They are well worth the time.
We did end up with a successful card and one fun set of outtakes that I will forever cherish.
Do you have a similar story or set of outtakes? Feel free to share!
