Because of our rigid winter quarantine, a trip to the Sears Portrait Studio was out of the question so we set up our own Christmas card photo shoot at home. The two "grandmas" (oh how they hate when we call them that!) were kind enough to supply adorable Christmas dresses for Josie to wear. We created backdrops out of blankets we had around the house and we even threw in a couple of props. However, getting the perfect Christmas card photo would prove a little more difficult than we had anticipated...
First, we had to overcome our fascination with the props.
Then, Lillian had to overcome her obsession with stealing the spotlight.
Then, we had to remind Daddy not to spruce up "the talent" when Mommy was trying to take a picture.
Trying to keep "the talent" focused on the task at hand was sort of challenging...
And finally our little holiday model let us know that she had had enough.
Cut! That's a wrap!
Luckily, we did get a glimpse of Josie's photogenic side. The current contenders are being reviewed by a top secret panel of judges (ie grandparents) and we'll let you know when we have a winner.
