Emma's Christmas card shoot day? A couple of weeks ago on a Sunday morning we left for church 20 minutes early and stopped in a beautiful spot to take a couple of family photos. Just us. Well, us, my tripod, my camera and my camera remote.
First I jumped out of the car and did a test photo to see how the light looked. Pretty.
Photographers say that morning and evening light is best - so I hear.
Sweet moments with Mike and Emma talking about the leaves.
After I run back to look, I see that I'm not very sly with the remote.
And we're out of focus.
We'll try it again.
We're getting a little better.
See that leaf mid-fall?!
This was facing West (east in the photos before). I wanted to play with the light a little bit - wasn't sure what would give us the richest color.
I hope we do more of these impromptu family-style shoots. They are a lot of fun completely and stress-free.
