How Does the Saying Go?...

"The cobbler's kids never have shoes." In this case, I managed to get Christmas photos for my clients this year but NONE for my own Christmas card! Don't get me wrong, I like to be busy, but somehow ran out of time and nice days to get photos of my own kids. I had some borrowed lighting equipment and thought I would take advantage of them and do a shoot in my home. As you can see, the results were anything but stellar. The end result was me fuming through the ears with frustration at the lack of cooperation from my kids and photos that look like they were done by a first day employee at JCPenney. Of course I can laugh about it now, but please understand why you did not get a Christmas card from me this year. I love you anyway and Merry Christmas!

Daina I can totally relate!!!!! I sent a card out but it wasn't up to par that's for sure. But, I think we are our own worst critics. You did a fine job!!!! Happy New Year!!!!

Ditto, I wouldn't even let our pic go out last year, and we put it off for too long again this year. I had to do our best and that wasn't good enough to make me happy. Sad isn't it.

This sounds vaguely familiar! You should've seen me the week before Christmas... my girls were outside on the on the wet, wet ground with soaking bums. BUT, mommy got some pictures! And in the end... isn't that all that matters?!? ;) BTW, I like the outtakes... next year, go with them!
