Outtakes

12.22.2011

I mentioned in Emerson’s 7 month post that it was getting more and more difficult to take pictures of her. Between trying to get her to stay still and keep her accessories on and me trying to get my camera settings just right, we usually end up with LOTS of outtakes. This session was particularly challenging because of E’s runny nose. Every time I would get it wiped it would be running again in the next picture. I also have tons of pictures where I cut off part of her body because I was so busy trying to get her to smile that I wasn’t looking through the lens.  Add all that to her constant case of wiggles and a good shot seems impossible!  I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite outtakes.

Needless to say, we are both worn out by the time it is all said and done. But it is so worth it to catch sweet little smiles like this:

Ha ha! I swear when we're done, more than half the pictures on the camera are outtakes and terrible. But you're right, doesn't matter when you get a big smile like that out of them!

1) These are amazing. My favorites are #7 and #10

2) You should do a post about where you get all E's headbands!! They are sooo cute. I assume a lot of Etsy, but am curious to know your favorite shops!

Hahahaha! I love all of these pics! Especially the one where she's laying on her little leg! Of course, the last one is the absolute best!! :) I'm glad I'm not the only one that has to take 50 pictures to get that one w/a smile and looking at the camera! lol
