Here is last year's portrait. Yes, the portrait that I was allowed exactly THREE FRAMES to capture - quite the irony considering that when I take friends out for portraits, I get HUNDREDS of frames to try and get one great shot. And I don't have to run and jump myself into those photos.
So, without any more ado, I hereby present you with some of the pictures we will NOT be using on this year's Christmas card...
Ok. Getting closer. But Middle Dude is still not appreciating the process. If you know what I mean.
All right. The Middle Dude is on board this time. But I look all squinty-eyed. And y'know, if the Mama doesn't look good, the picture's not going on the card ...
Whoops. I'm losing them quick. This gig's almost over.
This gig is DONE.
Details: It was HOT. Like, Africa Hot. And there were ants - thousands upon thousands of them. And flies. Oh my, the flies. And I think I just about had a heart attack on the climb back up the hill. And would you believe, we actually headed back out Sunday on more hot hikes to try other possible portrait locations?!? I'll post some of those tomorrow.
And, yes. I did get a picture on Saturday that I love and will be thrilled to put on our card this year. :-)
