Christmas Card Photo Shoot

Yesterday, we had an abnormally warm day here in Southeastern PA so I decided it might be my one and only chance to get pictures of the girls outdoors sans heavy winter coats for our Christmas cards. I called up my gal pal, Angie, and got her, her boys, and her SUPER NICE Nikon camera to join us at Springton Manor Farm.

It couldn't have been a more perfect fall setting. The trees and grass were adorned with all kinds of multi-colored leaves and I knew I had a good chance of getting THE perfect picture/s. Ang turned over her camera to me and gave me a few quick pointers and then it was time to start shooting. I've always enjoyed taking pictures, but the moment I looked through the viewfinder on her camera, I was in love! That camera was designed to make you want to take pictures. It was super addicting and I now have the itch to get a really nice camera just like it.

I did bust out my little handheld Canon Elph a few times while Ang was shooting, and unfortunately for you, those are the pictures I'm putting in this post. I'm keeping the good pictures hidden for now, but here are several pictures that didn't make the cut for the Christmas card this year. Also, the dresses the girls are wearing were handmade in Africa and brought back by Aunt Susie on her trip earlier this year.

Looks like a fun day of picture taking. The African dresses are the best, (that was so smart of your Aunt Susie to bring them back.)
I am so glad you were able to get out and get some pics in the beautiful weather and I am really looking forward to the ones on Angies camera.
