Ellenburg Family Christmas Card Photo Shoot...

Taking the annual Christmas Card photograph is always a lot of fun. I like everything about it. Picking out the perfect outfits. Choosing a great location. Creating the perfect template for a wonderful send out. But if I had to pick on thing to change, I'd take my shots earlier...but you know when you're photographing other families either do your shots first or last...this year I was last last - but with low drama.
We took our photographs in my front yard. It's one of my favorite places to shoot, it's gorgeous. I'm happy to announce, that at this year's shoot, the threats for smiles were at a minimum. No one cried. We still included a pet. And I only had to say, "Can you see the camera at all?" only once. All in all a great photo shoot. I even let Jackson take a few shots. That kids got skillz.
Enjoy a few of my favorites...
