Christmas Card Photo Flops - by Brad

We tried a few different poses and places for our Christmas card photo. We didn't really like any of the pictures we got, but we ended up having to settle on something. Here is what we tried...

This looks more like a family mug shot than anything else. Look how warm and festive we are against a large bare wall...



I'd say this one isn't too bad, but Spencer has a slightly weird look on his face. Also, I think we were grumpy by this point and when we reviewed these pictures, nothing looked good...



We liked this idea, but the bums-to-face ratio was a little off...



We almost settled on this picture, but I felt that it either looked like we were segregating the boys and girl, or that Lindsey just smelled bad...



Even though it may not be the best picture of any of us, we ran out of time and settled on this one...


MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I was just going to say what Mike said: I love them all! And I'm totally going to steal the laying down and looking at the camera pose. You guys have such a cute family.

Those were great! Wish I could have been there for the actual shoot..got the card today and I was quite impressed. Nice work on the card design this year Lindsey. Even though you are the "stinky" one in the family..you sure make up for it with your creative skills.
