Christmas Mini Session + Christmas Cards

Typically I just use our most recent family picture for our Christmas card every year, but this year I decided to go a different route and took some Christmas pictures of the kids. I also brought our dog Max along as well and I'm so glad I did.

My kids aren't the easiest to take pictures of. They are usually not interested in it at all and despise even the mention of getting their picture taken. I usually have to bribe them in some way, shape or form to get them to take a few pictures for me. This session was no different. Ha. I did get them out there though and they cooperated about as well as I expected. I did get some cute pictures, despite their not-so-enthusiastic attitudes. And thankfully, I was able to do a few head swaps to get the perfect picture for our Christmas Card this year. ;-) I just love the way it turned out. It was a gorgeous evening for late November. The temperature was in the 60's! Perfect for a quick Christmas Photo session.

I ended up using Walmart again for our cards this year. At $7.00 for a set of 20, you really can't beat that. I send out around 60 cards and the expense of cards plus stamps can be quite a bit. So I just always use Walmart. Plus they are done the same day so I don't have to wait for them to come in the mail.

And here are a few more that I really loved, but didn't make the Christmas Card 

This was my bribery for if they did good for the other shots... they could blow milk bubbles. ;-)
