Party Pictures For AmateursStefanie Wilder Taylor
All right! Christmas is almost upon us. Are you excited? I am so hopped up with excitement that I’m having trouble coming up with synonyms for excitement. Although I’m not sure why we need any really. Can’t we just say excited a bunch of times and feel confident that people understand that we’re not dumb, we’re just too lazy to think of words that are synonymous with excitement? One of the reasons that I’m extra happy about Christmas is that it signifies the end of the birthday season as well. Both Elby and my twins Sadie and Matilda had a birthday in November. It gets really crazy and honestly by the end of December the whole thing has just become a blur. And that’s why I’m happy that we take tons of pictures of all the festivities.
But don’t you hate it when you take pictures of an event and then realize that you neglected to get some key shots? It happens to the best of us, and by “best of us” I mean me. Luckily my husband is often the shooter which allows me to bark orders at him of what to get. And I’m going to share it with you in the form of tips. You don’t even have to thank me. You can simply donate to me through my PayPal donate button. I’m KIDDING. But didn’t you get mad for a second?
