Family Christmas Photo-Shoot
This past weekend we went to San Antonio to spend Halloween with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. We had a lot of fun as we always do when in San Antonio. My wife and I decided that we were going to take one of our Family Christmas Card Photo's there this year also. Every year as we look for a place to take our Holiday Photo we are challenged with the task of taking the photo ourselves. It wasn't very hard the past two years as I would just place the camera on a tripod, set the self timer and then run around and sit next to my wife and baby. But now Lauren is bigger and won't sit still very easily. The good thing is that we were also taking pictures for my sister-in-law and her family for their Christmas Picture as well. This was beneficial to us as my brother-in-law could just take our picture while they were there.
We thought about locations where we could take pictures and finally ended up at the River Walk Downtown. The challenge was finding a location where the shadows would be minimal. There are a lot of trees on the River Walk which in turn makes a lot of leafy shadows on your face. We were all dressed in winter-like long sleeve clothing. The thing is that in early November here in Texas it isn't very cold yet. In fact the temperature was 89 degrees. Everyone walking around was staring at us like we were crazy for wearing winter-like clothing. Once they saw us pull out the camera they understood what we were doing. All in all it was a lot of fun.
I have posted one of the pictures taken that day and will update this post with more pictures if and when we decide to take more photos for Christmas Card possibilities. Thank you Jonathan for taking these pictures for us. You did a great job.
