Christmas Card Outtakes

While we were at the beach last week for Thanksgiving, I decided I wanted to try to capture a picture of Walker for this year's Christmas card. I still don't know exactly what I'm doing as far as photography, but I figured as long as I took a couple hundred pics, I may get something I liked. So that's pretty much what I did.

I love the current trend of balloons in photo sessions, so I stopped by the local Harris Teeter (on Thanksgiving no less) and got them to blow up some balloons for me.And I knew I wanted to Walker to be pretty casual as far as his dress because that fits his personality much more than a dressy outfit. Sometimes you can just tell children are miserable in their Christmas photos because of what they are wearing.

Here are a couple of the outtakes that I've placed in some of my favorite Christmas card designs from the 2010 Shutterfly collection. They have wonderful Christmas and holiday cards, as well as photo calendars that make great Christmas gifts! I'll show you the real thing when I finally decide which one to use! Choices, choices! And I better decide soon, I know! I've already started getting cards from friends in the mail!






Heck some of these pics look so good in the card layout, one of these may just be the one! What do you guys think?
