Christmas card out-takes....



Yesterday I did a shoot with my 'lil punks! I had a scheduled shoot later on in the morning so I got my guys up early for out shoot. It turned out to be a great day, though one of my guys was not too enthusiastic. Any takers on who that would be? lol While I got some good shots, I am not sure which one will be my card pic! I left out a couple as I don't want to ruin the surprise. Then again, I may try it one more time. Seriously I think it's much easier to have someone else shoot your children (figuratively speaking of course! BAWAHAHAHA)

It IS easier to have someone else photograph your children! Any chance you will be in Denver before Christmas?! I was going to take the kids to Penny's to get their picture taken (together!), but buckled down and tried for a few shots on my own . . . not great, but a true testement to their personalities! Your shots are gorgeous - can't wait to see which ones you pick!

**Laugh*snort*laugh**--"it's easier to have someone else shoot your children--**snort** BWAHAHAHA. Yes, Amy JEAN Kelly, it would be easier, but probably a little more expensive! :)

I am so excited to see these new pix and, as usual, they are so good. The first one of Matt, on the top? IS GORGEOUS...what a smile! But, of course, I like all of them...even the ones where he is less than cooperative are good. Actually, I've always liked those, because they are SO him! Don't even get me going on my favorite red-headed boy; quite photogenic, that one!

And thanks for the comment, Amy; that means so much to me. I am so happy I joined the blogosphere; y'all keep me sane...well, as sane as I'm gonna be. BWAHAHAHA!!!

Now get your butt back here with more pix quicker, m'kay? :)

Mari said...

Amy - you are so good! I love your pictures and wish you lived near me! The sweaters the boys are wearing are really cute too!

Jessica said...

Love all of these!

I know what you mean about getting your own kids photos. They know all your tricks, and it just ends up with mommy getting a headache...lol.

Robyn said...

Those came out great. Why do I get the feeling you have a spunky one there?

Laura ~Peach~ said...

I try to reply to your comments or email you and they always come back as not deliverable :(

jenny said...

I am all too familiar with Christmas card out takes. Unfortunately, none of mine are half as good as yours.

I am thinking I might try some shots at the beach tomorrow afternoon.

♥ THey're GREAT!!! I love that first picture of the boys together and then their individual pictures are really good too! :)

Denise said...

Nice Shots! It will be hard to choose.

I sooooo agree about it is easier to have someone else "shoot" your kids...they seem to listen to someone else and do what they ask better than for you. I find that to be pretty true even with the grandkids. Your boys are so handsome, I can't wait to see the picture you selected for the Christmas card. Thanks for staying in touch. I appreciate your kind words of encouragement!

Steph said...

Wow they all look really good!

So . . . outtakes means you aren't using those? The "in-keeps" must be something else, 'cause the outtakes are awesome.

Kim said...

Such handsome little men.

Tracey said...

Adorable shots! Love the faces your younger son makes...

shay said...

Wow. You have some serious lookers there! I would find it impossible to choose!
We, sadly, are not doing cards...again. Maybe one day:)

kim-d said...

Hi Amy JEAN Kelly. I miss you. I haven't been very good lately about facebook/blogging/commenting, but I'm still thinking about you!

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Ok, we need a more current posting. I know you have been busy--Yeah!!!--- but you have to give us something here, just a little something. Like what did you select as your Christmas card?
