I was taking some pictures this week to include in holiday cards, and I ended up getting some great shots!  My model, of course, was some what temperamental, and we took a TON of shots to get our few great ones to share in Christmas cards, etc.  This is typical for this scenario.  Mama shoots and shoots and shoots, hoping and praying that there is a couple of good ones in the batch!  Sometimes we have tears (usually Tatiana’s!  ha!) and sometimes there are meltdowns (usually mama’s! ha!), but all in all we get the pictures done.  As I was looking through the final results, I laughed as some of the great “out –take shots” that won’t be used, but were too fun NOT to share.  I posted these on face book, but it got me thinking about some of the other fun shots from 2010.  So here’s some favorite “out-takes”!

Seriously just trying to catch some shut eye here, lady – turn off the camera

I get this grin a lot – it’s the ham it up grin IMG 087

And sometimes we get other faces….

Or no face at all – doesn’t this look painful?IMG_8882 IMG_8879

I just want my party to start already!

She is so cute! I took my 3 kids to the park in hopes of getting one good one for the xmas card. After 78 pictures, I got one so-so one that I don't even want to use. It's painful sometimes :)

Love the last pic!

Wow, I can't believe how big she is getting. Such a beautiful, happy little girl - a true blessing. We just had our family pics made and we were really stretched to get one that was good with all three of us. Marina is going through a phase where she doesn't like to have her picture taken - ugh!
