Xmas Card Photo Shoot

Category: Uncategorized


Not sure you could really call it a photo shoot…more like a semi-frustrating, not-as-fun-as-I-planned-it-to-be photo taking. First, dogs are difficult. Second, Brandon doesn’t have much patience for photography. Third, trying to direct people who only own disposable one-time use cameras on how to take the photos is trying.

The whole time I was thinking…"dang I wish I knew someone in San Diego who knew what the look I was aiming for"…a bit harder when you’re in the photo and not the one behind the camera to get exactly what you want.

But, we ended up with some decent ones…we both have differing opinions on which one will exactly be used…the one above is vetoed…first off the sun was blinding us and second, our dog looks like a tubbs (when he’s actually quite slim!) the wierd way he is sitting. Most of the photos are too far away. Even when I set up the camera for people, zoom perfected, "stand exactly where I am and just press the button…", someone always manages to step back. and to the left. or the right….grrr….Much photoshopping to do when we get home!

Still, a BEAUTIFUL day in La Jolla.
