I had a great idea for this years Christmas pictures...lets go to the beach! I've been wanting to do beach pictures w/ the kids for a while so off we go w/ HIGH expectations!!! I mean, I do beach weddings all the time and love them so lets go for it! We get there and then I remember, when you put together kids, sand, water and wind and then let them go and do their thing, well you get kids with sand on their bottoms and because they get in the water the wind makes them freezing! So as I am shooting I am NOT happy with my results. Then I get home and I take a minute to remember what my job really was when I went out there. Was it to just get an awesome Christmas card picture? No! It wasn't! My job was to get a picture that years from now, I will look back at my babies and think man I can barely remember them that little! That is the point! And that is what I got...pictures of my kids at 3, 6, and 14 walking hand in hand on the beach...PERFECT!!!!
We decided to go to the beach this year to take family Christmas pictures on Veterans Day, which is also Meggie Rea's 3rd birthday so I decided to pick up 3 balloons, well actually, we got 6, because our friends went w/ us so to give each kid one we needed 6 (also we were prepared just in case one popped)! Oh and I learned something too...don't tie 6 balloons together and expect to be able to separate 3 of them AT THE WINDY BEACH!!! We got Meg's apart, but we let the rest go because we couldn't get them apart! SO MUCH FOR A BALLOON PER KID!!! Anyways here are Meg's birthday balloon pictures, if you go to the beginning of my blog, you can look at her 2nd birthday balloon pictures, SHE HAS GOT SO BIG!!!!
