Hats off to Christmas





My youngest son is really starting to get the hang of this photo a day business. This morning when I climbed out of bed, I opened the curtains, accessed the light and told him “go get the Santa hat and …”
“Your camera?” he filled in helpfully.
He obliged and was soon striking a pose for some delightful shots.
Alas, he’s the only one who still thinks the whole being photographed thing is fun. Even the cat is starting to give me the evil eye.
I’m quickly running out of live subjects, and may be forced, before the end of the month to take photographs of myself. Trust me; no one wants to see that!
But Adam’s Santa hat photos turned out so well, I’ve been thinking that for Christmas photos this year I would simply take individual portrait shots of every member of the family wearing the hat, for a four corner photo layout.
While I was waiting for everyone to get it together and go to school I played around with self portraits and the Santa hat. Humm, maybe I should wait until I am awake, wearing make-up and in candle light. This early morning light is for the birds or for very young children.

What a cutie and so well trained, LOL. Your looking quite festive in the hat too. Your tree photos look awesome too. Getting caught up.

Great shots - cool idea for the cards too. I think the self portrait one came out great. I too am running out of willing subjects...never thought of the self-portrait angle.

Love that he knew just how to finish your sentence. :) The santa hat portraits will be priceless, these are just too cute already. :)

I like that photo of you... ;)
Great shots of your son too! He's a real cutie. :D

I can only dream of having cooperative live subjects to photograh. Perhaps I shouldn't even bother with a digi SLR... with no willing subjects in the house, it may well be a waste of money! LOL
