So last year, we made an investment in professional photography and had our first family photos taken of the five of us. I will cherish those photos forever. Unfortunately, having our photos taken annually by someone who knows what they are doing is not in the budget (might have to put that on the five year plan) so that leaves it up to us to figure something out.
So yesterday, on a beautiful sunny afternoon, we took the kids (in their adorably coordinated outfits) out to Dow Gardens to give my very amateur photography a shot.
I figured if I took enough photos, there'd have to be at least one that would be suitable enough for the Christmas card this year. And sure enough, after taking 261 photos, there stood just one.
It's a great one, truly. But as I scanned through the camera roll, the outtakes are even better.
