The making of a Christmas photo.

Last year we were newbies.

This year. Oh, no. We were prepared.

We had M&Ms on hand. Milk in sippy cups and bottles. Michael Jackson playing “Can’t Stop Till You Get Enough.” And the promise/bribe/threat that Santa was watching.

With 3 photo ops… we got it.

We took these at home with our camera on a tripod.  After each photo, they boys kept switching places!

    What a sweet family picture! Well done, Audrey! The other day I realized the last family picture we have is about 7 years old. Sad. The worst part is I was 40 lbs lighter and a blonde! Not me at all anymore 🙁
    Have a great Christmas!

    Only 3? That’s pretty impressive. You all look great.

    Those turned out so well! We do the camera on the tripod thing, too, and I always figure if we haven’t got a good one after three shots, we’re just not going to get it that day.

    Well done!

    So cute! You did a great job! My Christmas photo shoot was a disaster. Next year I will use M&Ms.
