Perfect Christmas Card Photo?


I am "attempting" to take photos of AA for our Christmas card. Did I make an appointment with a professional photographer? Nooooooooooo..... We do have a friend of the family who will be glad to take our family picture but we haven't connected yet (in other words, we have emailed; I haven't made the phone call).

AA cooperates to a certain extent. She wiggles so much and won't sit for long; it is a challenge to get a clear, smiling photo. Here are my first attempts today!


Our adorable daughter!! We just love her beyond words!

AA is sooooo BEAUTIFUL..

I don't know that you need a pro photographer. Those look great to me. We can't get JMei to sit long enough for a pic either - she has 2 speeds ..... fast and OFF.

Wow, from a scared little girl just a few months ago to this smiling little girl who's literally glowing with happiness. Amazing.

If I can't choose my favorite, I can't imagine you can, either. Each one is better than the next. Good luck!

Kind regards from Miami,

Carol and Taylor

Can you pick a layout with more than one slot? While they all show your beautiful daughter, I love the last one. She looks so happy.

Billy and Maggie said...

I really would have a hard time chosing a picture. She is beautiful in every one. Can you make cards with more than one picture..better yet.. a collage :)
Merry Christmas to you all!

So cute!! When Lily was this age, I purchased one of my all time favorite things....A Cannon Rebel with the Sports Feature...it snaps pics quickly and it is the only reason I ever get the shot!

Gail said...

She is absolutely ADORABLE! We also have a fast mover in our house, he's been home with us since August. You're going to have a wonderful Christmas this year!

Take care,

Gail

Totally adorable!! Check out that cute little smile! I can't help but marvel when I open your blog to the changes in her eyes from her referral pic at the top to the sparkle that is there now!! How ever will you choose with so many great shots to choose from?

Inga said...

What GREAT photos!! I mean those are really awesome. She looks soooo very happy and is just so precious.

Many Blessings.

Dita said...

You know you can't go wrong with that beauty as your subject. Remember, for every great picture there are 20 duds and doing it yourself is a definite option but you have to have patience.

She is just gorgeous!

Cora said...

Those pictures just melt my heart. The joy of children are what make this holiday so special.
I would not be able to choose between them if I were planning a card.

We took 1001 pictures to use for our card. It was hard to get a smiling picture where he didn't have snot coming down his face. These are cute.

These are all beautiful pictures....any one of them would be perfect for a Christmas Card!! It is so tough deciding.....good luck!!

I tell you, she is absolutely darling! You have a couple of good ones in there that I would use.

Vivian M said...

I would use ALL of these pictures, like a collage!

Jacquie said...

I'd say these are pretty good for a first attempt. AA is absolutely adorable and charming.

Norma said...

Man, what a difference. She is glowing. I would pick any one of these for a card. See what love can do.

Kayce said...

SOOOO cute!! I'd pick them all!

bbmomof2boys said...

Those pics are adorable!! AA is such a cutie pie that you can't go wrong. Ha - I had Little T's pic taken at Wally's World with Baby H. The baby smiled but Little T has her usual guarded look. Oh well...

Hugs,
Carla

Aren't you guys in GCS? that's only 45-50 minutes from me :O) But anyway- all these are beautiful, my God what a smile she has!! But I'd be THRILLED to take her photo anytime!!!!

Tracy said...

All are beautiful - you did a great job - and I'd vote for #4. The look of wonderment in AA's eyes says it all.

PIPO said...

Oh my goodness! Gorgeous. Each one of them. That sweet face says it all...she is what this season is all about.

Sophia's Mama and Baba said...

You are very blessed. Adorable, indeed.
If you don't have enough to do in your "spare time" I had to tag someone in the Crazy Eights blog meme. You're it. Head over to my blog to find out what its all about.

Kristy said...

If I had to pick a favorite I just could not do it!!! I love every single one of them.
Love, Kristy
