I'm a Mom with hard to photograph kids.

We had our "photo session" this afternoon and I don't think I got even one good picture of the kids. Either Colin wanted to be funny, or Lilly wouldn't look at the camera. There were some shots that could have been cute, if only Lilly would have looked at me! So for those of you that will get a Christmas Card, just know that I tried. Here are some of the rejects.

I hope you used the one with their tongues out for your Christmas card.That's hilarious!

Hahaha, the one where Collin is covering his face makes me laugh. I still do that crap to my Mom! Maybe he will never grow out of it.

Katie- I didn't use it for the Christmas Cards, but I did use it for the 2009 Calendar. I couldn't handle another photo shoot, and it depicts my kids all too well.

Cindy- I know he won't grow out of it...Seth still does the exact same thing. I have countless pics of each of them covering their faces. UGH!

I'm sure you got something that works out great. I would not always worry about them looking a the camera, some of the best shots are when they look away. I think last year that's how my card was. It will be great no matter what! Plus their still young and hard to take pictures of.

Great job Anjie. I love them. Oh, should I mention my family had a meltdown when I said alright let's go. So, I ended up at the park with the dogs...

I feel your pain. We went through two years where Tyrza WOULD NOT cooperate with picture taking and in fact was quite miserable in every picture. I finally decided to quit taking pictures of her if she wouldn't smile... I didn't want to remember that my daughter was so grumpy during those years. Now that she will *sometimes* smile, we are dealing with the frozen, stiff non-smiling *attempt* at a smile from Sadie. Thus, you got a Christmas card this year with SEPARATE head-shots of each of our kiddos. I feel ya... (P.S. I'm such an airhead I can't remember my own password/user ID, so I'm posting anonymously!)
