I've been taking other friends' Christmas photos instead. Here, a few out-takes (I'm guessing that the ones they officially select for Christmas cards won't be the ones I'm posting here.)
First up, Katharine and her twin girls, Zoe and Evelyn. Unfortunately, I didn't handle the indoor lighting situation very well--not sure if there's anything to be salvaged from those. I'll leave that up to Katharine.
Can you believe that blurred? ugh, I want to kill myself. I love soft light on little kids' faces, but this went too far.
|They can see their reflections in the kick plate.|
Next up were my neighbors, Mandy and Sean, with their tiny peanut of a baby boy, Declan.
|You can see that glint of "I am Mother Bear--hear me roar!" in Mandy's brown eyes.|
I do have family shots of them, but these two were my personal favorites. Declan was so good--he never even hinted at crying.
And finally, there's Julie and Vigg:
We took these at Everhart Park--love the contrast of that blue coat against the background. Is Bruce one of the cutest non-human babies you've ever seen?
Every night, I swear up and down that this will be the night I go to bed before 1am. I guess I'll have to try again tomorrow.
