Moments that Matter | Christmas photos take one

Hannah has asked me to do some Christmas photos for our Christmas cards, as she saw the photos I did for friends of us.  So we jumped in the car and set of to the national park that is across the road from our house.  I thought it was a great opportunity to get nice photos of them as they wanted this.  Well surprise, surprise.  As soon as their little toes touched the sand, they went off like a rocket.  The one was following the contours of the water line and the other was following her with a slightly slower pace.  They twirled and ran and jumped in muddy puddles.  They build a sandcastle and seemingly totally forgot about the intended photoshoot.  I got the usual shots.  Crazy hair shots, crazy running shots, crazy everything shots.  On the way back, Hannah asked: “can we see the Christmas photos on your computer when we get home?”

So I figured out one of two things: 1) She either love the crazy running dirty child kind off photos that I normally take of her, and learned how to achieve the result during the last four years, or 2) She thinks that running around Bradley, who is sitting in a puddle, is the same as sitting on a rock next to her brother so that I can get a photo of them together.

This is their Christmas photos take 1.  We will try again. Maybe when they decorate the christmas tree or something else static.
