It's that time of year again where we are deciding what to wear for family pictures and picking out the perfect Christmas card to send to friends and family. I am pretty certain that the 3 boys I live with dread this so much every year. However, I am certain that they love looking back at pictures from the past years just as much as I do!
I contacted several different photographers to get pricing on photo sessions and scanned through their availability. After much deliberation I decided to let a friend use my fancy camera (that never gets used) and see what kind of pictures she could get. We have so much going on this year that I just couldn't fathom spending $200 on a photo session that included ONE actual print or download! I have paid so much for pictures in the past and sometimes it has been worth it and sometimes it has been a complete waste.
We picked the coldest day of the year to take pictures!! It was so windy and cold and the sun was setting quickly! However, I think we got a couple of good pictures and that was worth it to me!! Here are a few outtakes from our day (more like 20 minutes) at the Botanical Gardens. And of course I am saving the best ones for our Christmas cards!

|Trying to recreate a photo I saw on Pinterest! Ha-it didn't go as planned! (As with many of my Pinterest ideas)|
|This was my favorite picture of all the ones that were taken.|
