This is what happens when you try to get a picture of your daughter’s adorable Christmas outfits when your baby is fairly mobile. What choice was there for her to go directly up her big sister’s dress? I believe it was the shiny material that drew her in. How very “Awkward Family Photo“-esque.
This is what happens when you try to get four cousins in a picture on Christmas Eve when the oldest of the cousins is 5 years old. My nephew’s Dad is there to unsuccessfully force his kid to stay in the frame.
I’d say photo perfection will be here next year, but 18 month olds are perhaps the most elusive photography subjects there are and that’s exactly how old Violet will be next year. I’m Jewish and used to try to distance myself from this holiday, but marriage has forced my hand at celebrating it. If I have to celebrate Christmas, at the very least I want a pretty picture of Christmas dresses and cousins to go with it!
Merry Christmas, everyone! May your photo endeavors and other holiday traditions go better than mine!
