OWW - Opinions Wanted Wednesday

It's that time again - Christmas cards! I've had three photo shoots with the kiddies so far and I am a perfectionist. I never get the picture that I want. I'm learning that I don't have time to get exactly what I want anymore, and I feel like 3 photo shoots is all I have in me right now. Getting them dressed into their Christmas attire and attempting to have them sit for me - partially impossible!  I have a feeling I will try one more time but I'm going to try to hold myself back. None of these are perfect but let me know which picture you like the best for a main photo!

#1 Nick isn't smiling :(

#2 I wish Kara wasn't laying down

Nick has a death grip on Kara here

These were some of my favorite photos from today - non-edited:



#6 thanks for the smile Nick



#9 Now look at Mommy!


You can tell me if you like any of these more too!
You're probably thinking, wow, it's November 9th and you're taking Christmas pictures? I love taking photos of the kids, and last week I wanted to run away so I decided to have a focus and this has made life easier :)

I forgot to put my due date in the last post - May 3.


  1. I love #s 7, 8 & 9. Maybe you could do a collage of some sort. You sure do make beautiful babies!!!

  2. My favorites are #1 and #9 :)

  3. I love 2, 6 and 9. Great photos - they look like they had fun!

  4. They are all cute! Number 9 is my favorite.

  5. Love them all, but the candid ones in 6-9 are my faves. I just got myself a camera this year and am having lots of fun figuring it all out!

  6. Like # 3 but #9 is my fave. Big fan of candid shots. And, we had family pics made at the end of Oct. Cannot wait to get them and start working our holiday cards!!

  7. These are adorable!! I like 8 and 9! So cute!

  8. Love #9. Candid and fun :) Congrats on the pregnancy!

  9. I think you should do a card with 3 photos: #3 as the main one then use a cropped version of 7 and 8 for smaller pics on the card. Do you have Photoshop? If you don't I can edit your pictures for you. If you don't like the edits you don't have to use them, it won't hurt my feelings ;-)

    My birthday is April 28th so it would be nice to have another birthday buddy!

  10. I love #9! I know Nick is not facing the camera, but it is just so natural and spontaneous and look how big their smiles are!

  11. I think I'd do something with #7, #8 and #9. Maybe a three picture card?!?!
