Preview From Our Christmas Card Shoot

So I bought a groupon for a local photographer , who I think is actually a pet photographer...oopsie! DIdn't know that at the time, but she did well with us humans too!  I know this will probably wreck all my photog friends, but the way I choose my photographer is finding someone that will give me a disk of images because I like to use them for blog, facebook, linked in, my website, ...whatevies.. and especially CHRISTMAS CARDS.
I have to say, I want to give myself a huge pat on the back for scheduling, going, and getting these pics back this early in November, AND for having the doggies in the family photo. It was much harder than I ever imagined getting all 5 of us comfortable, cute and looking at the camera. Peebs decided that he was way too busy playing with leaves and rocks to take part in the shoot, so it was rare that he ever looked up and I was shocked that we got some good pics from the whole extravaganza. 
I also have to share that we were taking these pictures in the park, and while he was scrompling around playing he found himself a big fresh pile of dog dookie and picked up some. GREAT. it was totally disgusting and luckily I had wipes and all but it was also hilarious. I mean that whole experience was so chaotic and SUCH a pain. 


Here are some of the pics.:

I love his hair. Too cute! Can I just say it's amazing that she got you all including the dogs to look at the camera at least 90% of the time? That's talent. They look great!

Peebs! I love his "wind blown" look. I think the shots are great. I think candid is so much more meaningful than posed and fake smiling, ya know?

I love that you included your pups. We are, too. I think your photographer did an amazing job considering everything that was going on (ewww...poop!). You guys are a beautiful family!!

We're taking our family photo tomorrow. First professional shoot in a LONG time. LONG time. And, I chose my photographer the same way as you...who could give me the most bang for my buck. Fortunately, my girl was recommended by a friend and she's just starting out so I'm more than happy to help build her portfolio!! :)

Great pics! Your hair looks great. We just did the exact same thing last week! I was laughing when I read this because YES it is an accomplishment these days getting the whole family out the door for pics in November! Jax and AB had about a 20 minute attention span and they were done! Looking forward to the Christmas card :)

You guys look great and do not look like it was chaotic experience. Good photographer!

And I agree, I think you should get a CD of the pics. I hate it when I pay $200+ for a sitting then its $15 for 1 only 1 4X6, etc. I end up spending waaaaaay too much for a photo that will be out dated in a few months as Ben grows fast.......
I haven't even thought about Christmas card pics this year. Might just search my photos and make a crappy looking card or send out St Patty's Day cards.... ha
But, really, might be February......
