You read that right: Christmas! This year, I wanted to get a jump-start on our Christmas preparation by photographing the kids early while it’s still pleasant outside. That way, I’ll be ready to do up our Christmas cards whenever I have a spare moment in the fall.
In the past, the colour red has featured very heavily in my Christmas outfit choices. This year, I wanted to do something different. I still wanted the images to impart a sense of festivity, but I didn’t want them to scream “Christmas”! After perusing my kids’ closets (and doing a bit of shopping, I must admit), I came up with a black and cream colour scheme. The only truly festive touch is the inclusion of our winter wreath.
In every photo shoot, there’s got to be some silliness … Can you, can you do the Can Can?
After that super-smiley shot above, Ren turned on his signature GQ poses.
Claire and I both crack up when he pulls those model faces for the camera! But we secretly love it too.
It was a quick and easy little session, and I think I have plenty of options for our annual Christmas card. Thank you to my kiddos once again for being sweet and easygoing subjects!
***UPDATE *** Here’s a sneak peek at the front of our card this year:
