I take my family’s photos pretty much every year. My mom sends out an insane amount of Christmas cards and that’s a good time to get a recent photo out to everyone, along with Christmas wishes and sometimes a family letter. This past year was no different…except this is the first year I’ve opted out of them. Typically I run back and forth from the camera so I can be in on the shoot as well, but this year we decided it would just be the family that is still at home. It was actually pretty nice just to hang out behind the camera for once. Also, if you know anything about my family, you know that we love our guns. Collecting them, shooting them…my dad and youngest brother especially. So it seemed pretty natural to include some in the family shoot this year. I’m horribly late in posting these because…well…I guess blogging is something I need to improve on. But better late than never!
Shenanigans happen every. single. year.
…but from those shenanigans came one of my favorite pictures of the entire shoot, so I guess I can’t complain. Much. 😉
The combination of the guns and the serious faces made for some pretty great things.
This was one of the pictures we settled on for the Christmas card. Combined with the phrase “Joy & Peace”. I was amused.
John and Tim, each holding one of their “babies”.
I may be prejudiced, but I have the cutest parents.
We had to get some of just the girls with their guns.
