Just a heads up this is not a guide to the perfect Family Christmas Photo. However if you are looking for a real moment captured in time then this post may be for you.
Every year I hit up Walmart or the Dollar store to buy my box of Christmas cards. I fill them out, address them, and drop them in the mail. I was going through my Christmas box the other day and I found everyone’s Picture Christmas cards. You know the beautiful family photo on a card. I save those because in most cases that is the only photo I get from some families all year long. It excites me to see how much the family has grown from year to year.
I wanted that! I want to personalize Christmas a little more and put some thought into our cards rather than just added our name to a store bought card. It’s a photo I know we can take every year and be able to share with our loved ones.
Now mind you, my husband hates to have his picture taken. I’m lucky if I get a family photo once a year. My toddler is at the stage where he hates sitting still. So why make everyone feel miserable getting all dressed up and poked and posed for the perfect family photo. I want to keep it semi real. I want our real expressions captured and most of all I want it to be fun.
That my friends is why we are doing our Christmas photo in the comfort at home in our pajamas! From my previous post you all know how much we love our pajamas, haha! I would like one photo of all of us smiling and sitting still but this year I’m open to let the unexpected, crazy expressions, and most of all real moments to be captured.
I just ordered our Christmas cards from Walmart, and I have never been more excited to go pick them up.
If I can share anything with you, I want it to be, remember to let loose and have a little fun. These are the moments that you and your family are going to remember. Make the best of what your doing and most of all make it fun.
