These are not very good, from a technical standpoint. My children were not very cooperative, I didn’t edit them much, and definitely don’t think anyone would call them professional. But they are an accurate representation of our holiday and I’m happy I have them and can share them and one day I will love them just as much as I love the tiny 3×5 prints of my own childhood Christmases.
I actually hate to even type this because I KNOW I will fail and why even TRY to start something when I know it will fail but I’m going to do a 365 Photo Project in 2015. My goal is to take one photo every day that I don’t edit. One photo taken as a JPG on my big girl camera, no cropping, no lighting adjustments, no cloning things out of the background, no white balance correction. I have to accept it as it was taken, which (hopefully) will make me more conscious of things in-camera and not letting myself say “Oh I’ll just fix it later”. That’s why I never posted Halloween photos – I never finished editing them. That is LAZY photography and I need to be better than that.
Don’t worry, I won’t post all of those photos here. I haven’t decided how I’ll do it yet but I promise I won’t make you look at a crappy photo every day. As if blog readership wasn’t down ENOUGH this year.
Only the baby is still cooperative.
I WILL KISS HIM BUT ONLY BECAUSE YOU THREATENED ME WITH SANTA
Literally the only thing Linc got in his stocking
Socks in your stocking are TRADITION. DEAL WITH IT.
Yeah, he ate that paper.
Maybe next year Santa will bring her a hairbrush
Obviously she got too many presents, since she’s this exhausted from opening.
At least we know E got what he wanted. (Thanks Carolyn!)
He did this for like 9 straight hours.
The t-rex attacking the ponies cracks me up EVERY TIME. I am HILARIOUS.
I got a super cool tripod for Christmas. This is me trying it out.
Happy First Christmas, Baby Lincoln!
