There's probably nothing as frustrating as trying to conduct a living room photo shoot for the yearly Christmas card.
Some of them really are worth it though. This one was completely unprompted. Too bad it wasn't great, compositionally. And I had to use the dreaded flash.
The "good" shot that I finally did get really isn't that great (I'll post it at another time), but the memory of two young boys who really love each other, sitting together on a couch is one that will linger with me.
Any plans for Christmas cards this year? I thought I could rely on one from our time at the beach this summer, but there weren't any good ones of both boys or all of us.
