So we need a photo. Because it is Vic’s first Christmas. Because she grows so quickly. Because it will be a nice memory. And because we have to make up for the lack of pressies arriving on time.
We don’t have a recent family photo, which we could use.
I generally close my eyes on 99% of all photos (even if I try hard not to - I think it is some kind of subconscious reflex ;-))))
I have no idea how to make the photo look like us (and not like an advertising-style family)
Inspiration came, as so often, online:
Maybe a bit too silly?
Maybe a bit too posh?
My favourites, however, are these two:
What nice, warm takes on the traditional family photo!
I have no idea whether our result will be half as nice as these, but we will give it a ‘shot’ anyway. So fingers crossed that my lovely husband has fully charged the battery of our camera, that my little one is in a good mood and patient, because we will need lots of tries to get one with my eyes open. Or we will end up taking one with my eyes closed – which would look more like us anyway ;-)
If we succeed today, I am going to show you our family shot tomorrow. If not, I will just avoid the topic and ramble on about something else ;-)
Wish me luck!
