Our Christmas photos

I wanted to share some of my favorite Christmas photos with you guys that we took back at the end of November. This is our second Christmas in North Carolina and with Knox and I wanted to make sure to have a proper Christmas photo to send out in my Christmas cards. I think that is one of the fun things about being an adult, is sending out Christmas cards. I sent out about 12 this year mostly to family that lives far away and some friends. I am also giving each of my close family a Christmas card when we go back to WA to see them so I saved a little on postage.
I took these photos with my camera, tripod, and self timer. We are getting pretty good at family photos this way. I used the same method that I did with our anniversary photos. I will say that it is a lot harder to get a dog to look at a camera with no one standing behind it. But I will say we at least got one good one (Christmas card at very end of the post.) I edited the lighting in photoshop a little bit. 
The one of Clark and Knox is really great. I think that was one of the only good ones where Knox is actually looking in the directly of the camera and I am sure that was because I was actually standing behind the camera. I am excited to take photos with my family when I am back in Washington. I know they probably wont be all formal but to at least have some photos of the whole group is really nice. And whenever all our family is together I am usually the one that is counted on to get everyone in at least one photo. And I will proudly take that responsibility haha. I hope everyone is have a Happy Holiday! We are enjoying time with family here in Washington. 
love, Carlee

  2. Aww these photos are so cute! As sad as it may sound, I'd love to be able to do something like this with our cat, but getting him to sit still or look at a camera is just never going to happen haha!
