The making of a Christmas Card (Children’s Photography)

5 more sleeps until Christmas! I cannot wait. This time of year is made all the more special by having Izabel in our lives, and for the 3rd time she is the feature of our Christmas card.

I thought it would make an amusing blog post to show some of the out takes from my attempts to create our Christmas card this year.

Day one, attempt 1. A sweet picture, she’s enjoying herself, but it’s not quite right.

Fairy magic

Having a chat with a fairy.

Hello little fairy

Eating the wand wasn’t really what I had in mind Izzy. She has pretty much decided to direct the shoot herself at this point.

Yummy wand

Day two, attempt 2. Gorgeous smiles and giggles but a messy background and not enough baubles!

All giggles

Time for a break, and a little bit of bribery..

Time for a break

None of the angles were working, so I decided to lay a white duvet on the floor and shoot down through the baubles, butterflies and fairies. This wasn’t really the look I was going for though!

Then just when we were both getting fed up..
