Christmas is only 40-ish days away and I still don't have our cards done. I've been wracking my brain to come up with something fun for the front of the cards, but really haven't found anything that I love yet.
Yesterday started out a little cloudy- perfect for beach shooting- so the Dearest and I wrangled the boys into the car and headed down to the beach. Of course once we got there, the sun came out again. *sigh* Harsh overhead light is not the exactly the most flattering.
I didn't have anything in mind- just let the small men run about and shot as they were doing their thing. Not really happy with the finished photos. They are nice, but not what I was looking for if I want to use them our Christmas cards. It doesn't help that I don't really have any idea what kind of card I want to make.
Got some cute shots, tho (click for larger images):
The beach was deserted due to it being the off season and a little cloudy. One of my photog pals had mentioned that she did a shot recently where the beach was so crazy with other photographers that she literally was running from spot to spot with the clients, trying to get a shot before someone else got into the frame. There are a couple of local spots that are super popular for beach sessions (I see the same arch in at least two or three Christmas cards every year), and I knew to avoid those. So the little beach we went to was quiet and lovely and the small men had fun running around throwing sand & rocks into the water.
