Tony and I had a mini-photo shoot the other day. This is not a frequent occurrence around here, as much as I’d like him to get into some of my self-portraits. However, I’d gotten an idea from Pinterest for a holiday photo of the two of us, and was able to talk Tony into playing along. While I still love the idea, suffice it to say we had a number of issues play out that left us with less than a “holiday card worthy” result.

I think the Universe conspired to censor this photograph for the viewing audience.

But allowed this more, “family-friendly” one to come through.

Clearly, we need BIG holiday lights for this idea to work. And second, we need some more cooperative film. But, we still had fun together and captured a sweet moment or two. And that is definitely focusing on what matters, right?

Have you tried any holiday-specific photo ideas? How did they come out?

    Wow! I love it when the divots seem more than random. Maybe it didn’t come off exactly as planned but as you said, these are a couple of sweet moments captured.
