Hey friends!  How was your Halloween?  Did any great picture taking happen for you?  I hope my ideas from a few weeks ago came in handy!  I have to share one darling photo sent to me by Camille:
I love it!  So, so cute.  And shot in manual mode!  Way to go Camille!!!
Now it's time to get that great Christmas card photo!  It is possible, I can assure you... whether you are the one taking the photo, or a photographer is taking it for you, here are a few ideas that will help you get a unique shot, without breaking a sweat.
This first example was taken at an old abandoned barn, the perfect shade of red for this time of year!  To bring a little Christmas cheer though, I hung a rustic green star on it.
I also love this pose.  When all else fails (namely, smiles) get a giggle instead!  
I like to alternate between a family photo and a photo of my kids every year.  It's a lot easier to get a picture of your kids anyway... and that's all people really want to see right? ;)   Here's a cute shot I got of some kids playing Ring Around the Rosie in their living room.  With the Christmas tree peeking out in the corner, I think it says "Merry Christmas" in a subtle, endearing way.
And for something more whimsical, check this photo out.  
Should you get a bad shot, why not have a little fun with it?  Love this idea my friend Courtney came up with:
Just a few ideas to help you say "happy holidays" this year!!!  Have fun and keep those questions and photos coming!  I love to see how you all are progressing: photosbylei@yahoo.com !
