Well, when we were up in Big Bear, I just couldn't help but snap a few pictures, hoping one would be just right for our cards! Let's just call it our mini Christmas photo shoot with a tripod and timer! Inn Der Bach has beautiful grounds which provided us with a beautiful backdrop for several shots:
I don't think I could have been happier with how they turned out! Sure, we got a few duds, but for a ten second timer and a tripod, I think we got much better shots than I was expecting! The best part is, we also managed to get one we used on our Christmas cards! I know it's kind of early to think about them, but we got them done! We looked through about 300 designs, picked out the perfect one, and ordered them the evening we got home! I have to tell you, I'm certainly no photographer, but I'm pretty proud of the memories I captured for us but I have to share some of the bloopers too!
|This one actually isn't too bad, but I love the one of us in front of the tree more!|
|Hi, my name is Elizabeth, and I have creepy photo hands!|
ALSO: Seriously, this little cabin! It NEEDS to be restored because it could be GORGEOUS!
|Because leaning on gazebo poles is totally natural, and where and I looking!?|
You'll just have to wait until December to see the one we ultimately went with, and and the card we picked out! Gene was much more instrumental in picking it out than I was! AND: it not only fits perfectly with our personality, but works BEAUTIFULLY with the picture we chose!
Are you doing a photo shoot for your Christmas cards? Do you do picture cards?! I fall in love with ours more and more every year!
