FAILED PHOTOGRAPHY

Every year I have taken pictures of Lauren at Christmas. I love to get the perfect shot that shows her sparkle and the warmth of Christmas and our love for her.

2012: Pretty good...

2013: Well, at least we took the photo in December...

2014: This year I thought that it would be magical to try to capture that for both of the girls together. Well, magical might not have been the result. Lauren has continued to have a mind of her own (surprise, surprise) which is compounded with her two-and-a-half-year-old-itis to make a stubborn blond angel. You want her to sit, she'll stand. You want her to stand, she needs to fall down on the floor. You want her to lie down, she's in the process of running away. Argh.  And then there's Elyse. You want her to sit, sound great. You want her to smile, no problem. You want her to wear antlers, she wants to wear them forever. These two! Then, Lauren decided that she didn't actually want to be in any photos this year. Nope, she whipped out her Fischer Price camera (that you can't actually see through) and started doing a photoshoot of just Elyse, peppered with encouragement like, "That's great!" and "Good girl!" Apparently she's seen me take photos a few times.






In the end, we got a few good shots but I may be photoshopping one or more of my kids into next year's Christmas photos.

  1. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a blessed 2015! Lauren's hair is sure growing long. She looks so different now.
