Out-takes from Christmas Card 2010 Photo Shoot #1

If you can't tell from the title of this post, tonight's attempt at capturing the perfect photo for the 2010 Little Shaw's Christmas Card did not go as well as planned. We got some good shots, but nothing that quite lives up to the standard set last year. It was hard to get this light right, with the tree and the lamps and the windows, and those little buggers move fast. We'll try again tomorrow, and let you know how it goes.

First we tried a couple of Olin Mills arrangements, just for the auld lang syne. The result was about what we anticipated - cute, but a little contrived. Although you can't quite tell it in every shot, I think Caroline is more of a ham than Jack (I mean, she's definitely chubbier, but I meant a camera-ham).

This shot was a contender. You'll just have to wait a few weeks to see what shows up in your mailbox. How long until Christmas??

Some of the real outtakes. Our kids are pretty darn funny sometimes, just not at the same time.
