I’ve known for a while that I wanted to have our card this year be an Awkward Family Photo. I love the blog/book and apparently it’s a thing people like to talk about it. We worked really hard to brainstorm as many awkward poses as we could come up with, gathered some outfits, and we were ready to shoot. I am very happy with the final product, but I really really hope the recipients “get” that it’s an intentional awkward photo.
I am getting a little worried as I receive Christmas cards and I have to ask myself: did they KNOW this was awkward? Now you’re wondering if I’m talking about yours…if you are wondering, then, yup, yours probably looked a little awkward. And that’s ok! I still love it! Send me one next year too!
Here are the outtakes from our shoot:
And here is the finished product:
Here is what I love about this photo:
