I fancy myself to be a semi-decent photographer, so OF COURSE I thought it was a mighty fine idea to take a photo of the wee baby
Seamus Little A and make into a wonderful, beautiful, exceptional holiday card.
NO ONE TELLS YOU TRYING TO PHOTOGRAPH A BABY IS LIKE TRYING TO WRANGLE MONKEYS ON CRACK.
But we got a few. And even though sorting pics to find the good ones is like 119% the bane of my existence, there were some stand outs and one MEGA stand out which became the card.
Was it worth it? Probably. But here’s hoping NEXT Christmas is just a little bit easier.
Release that baited breath, my friends. The next photo was the big winner of the Christmas Card Contest Extravaganza Bonanza Blitz. And, side note for you procrastinators, and I am not being paid for this endorsement in any way, but if you have a Ritz Camera in your area, HOLY CRAP. I ordered the cards online on Friday, December 14th and picked them up the next damn day. Every other website either wouldn’t let you upload your own design (which I had) or they were charging an arm and a leg for expediting OR both. I didn’t even know there were still Ritz Cameras in business but holy hell I’m glad there are; for once I got those damn cards out on time.
The card was captioned with “Merry & Bright”. I was more than okay with the outcome.
And if you are unaware of the reference, please introduce yourself to the Wee Baby Seamus.
