Every year it becomes more challenging to take those perfect Christmas card pictures. Lives are busy and the days are long (even though they're actually much shorter due to the earlier sunsets). Finding time for outdoor pictures isn't easy. My tip? Forget about getting perfect and go for authentic. Go out when you have the time and let your children have fun while you snap away, and in between the tongues sticking out and dancing around you're going to snap some pictures that warm your heart.
This year we had just as many silly pictures as we did sweet-and honestly, they're my favorite. They always are.
