I decided to use the Christmas tree as a backdrop for Luca's pictures, because who doesn't love the gorgeous bokeh? Jonah, on the other hand, I KNEW would not sit and pose for a photo, so after perusing Pinterest, I decided to incorporate one of his favorite toys and cross my fingers I'd get some cute candids.
All in all, I love how they turned out and am really excited to design this year's Christmas card! Here's a look at some of my favorites:
I should probably add that it was 50 degrees here yesterday! Thank you, Photoshop, for allowing me to make it snow :)
And? My favorite photo of the day? The "picture-perfect" sibling photo:
HAH! I cannot help but giggle at this picture. I will treasure it for years to come, because it truly is a glimpse into what life with a newborn and toddler looks like :)
Are you taking or having Christmas pictures taken this year? Also, would anyone be interested on a tutorial explaining how to get that "bokeh" look to your Christmas tree photos? I've had quite a few people ask me to teach them, so I thought maybe a post explaining how to use your DSLR may be helpful :)
