When a photographer takes photos of her own family…

outtakesforwebNAILED IT!

So, every year, I set out with my tripod, remote, and an ambitious vision to take my own family’s holiday card photos. And, every year, it’s hands down my most challenging session. Why, you ask? Well, for starters, I have no patience with my own children (and husband, if I’m being totally honest) when I’m trying to pull off said ambitious vision and no one is cooperating. And also, the limitations of shooting with a tripod and remote can get frustrating. I’m happy to report we ended up with a few good options. But, you guys…these outtakes have had me laughing so hard all week. Don’t we all just look so happy?! My sister says Mike looks like he’s having an existential crisis, and that Simon and Garfunkle should be playing in the background. “Hello darkness my old friend…”

I’m seriously digging the Riverwalk backdrop. Just wait until you see Jessica and Viviana’s photos taken in the same location on my blog later this week. Let’s just say that their session ran a lot smoother than my own little family’s!
