Family Photos

When Christmas rolls around, we always try to get a good family photo done.  I think this is a pretty standard practice with a lot of families :)  We always take enough that at least one or two of them turn out good enough to go on the Christmas card and to hang on the wall.  But to be quite honest, my favorite ones aren’t necessarily the “perfect” ones with everyone looking and everyone smiling that I use on the Christmas card.  I think all the other not so perfect ones actually make me smile more!  So here are a few of our out takes that made me smile!

This one is a personal favorite – let’s just say I was pushing the wrong button and no one was ready!!!

Anyone noticing a pattern here of why most of these pictures didn’t make the Christmas card cut?  One word – LAYTON!

Ok, I couldn't stop laughing out loud. Your little Layton, ahahaha. What a cute family! And I think the best Christmas card is where you can see a real personality of a person and Layton did great :)))))0

I'm surprised at what a nice background the old stairs make. Your photos look so alive. Love the rejects too.
