For the first year of Tori’s life, I was determined that we would have professional photo shoots for Big Occasions. Unfortunately, I was desperately unhappy with her first professional photo shoot, and only marginally satisfied with our Official Christmas Pictures, so this year, we decided to do it ourselves.
Was the lighting as good as it would have been in a studio? Thanks to the snowy day, no.
Was the camera of professional quality? Hell, no.
Did anyone cry? Nope, and that made it all worthwhile.
I’m not going to show you the ones we’re going with (yet), but here for your viewing pleasure (and maybe a good laugh) are a few that were deemed almost, but not quite, good enough.
Are we about to land ourselves a modeling contract? Well, no, obviously. But hey, it was a hell of a lot less painful than trekking to Sears, waiting in a crowded, hot, stuffy waiting room full of screaming kids for 45 minutes for a ten minute photo shoot and then being bullied into purchasing a $65970326590953 photo package.
In fact, we ended the photo session happier than we started it. And that? Is what Christmas is all about.
