I wanted to share a few photos from our Christmas card photo session this year with my daughter Isla. Instead of keeping all my outtakes this year, I deleted most of them right off the bat without thinking about making a blog post, so I only had a few to choose from. The first image is the one which went out with our Christmas cards, and the others did nothing except sit on my hard drive until 10 minutes ago.
From my family to yours, Robyn, Isla, and I, want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Hopefully you’re able to share the holidays with family, and that you have some time off to watch some World Juniors too ;) Go Canada Go!
Getting Isla to stay seated on the little stool proved to be rather difficult. She wanted to get up, and when she didn’t want to get up, she wanted to play with the background, and I think we picked up the little wood trees 20 times. Eventually we bribed her with goldfish crackers. We had tried so many things before the bribery stage, from acting like idiots, to holding the dogs above our heads, to letting her hold her favourite nutcracker, whom she has dubbed simply ‘man’. The final image we ended up with came when I asked her if she wanted a goldfish and she got excited. Everyone tells me that she looks 100% like me in this photo, so that must be why I think she looks so damn cute.
