Happiness is Christmas Pictures

We bought a groupon over the summer for JCPenney's.
 The idea was that we would get the kids' five and three year pictures done. 

And then life happened.

Suddenly it was November, and the children were itching towards 5 1/2 and 3 1/2. 
And there were no pictures.

We scheduled an appointment for Sunday.
Someone at work asked if we were doing holiday pictures,
and I thought - why not?
We've never had them before.

Let me just tell you the shoot was amazing.  The kids, for some unknown reason when put before a professional photographer, will smile, stand still, and pose.  (When I get out my camera, I have to chase them, tackle them, and then duct tape them to the floor to get them to hold still.....)

These are a few that did not make the cut,
mainly because I am using Shutterfly to make our Christmas cards.

Love your pictures. Curious if these didn't make the cut, what the one that did looks like.

We just did the Penny's holiday pictures too, and I have to admit, I was pretty impressed with how they came out. The background was really good for a department store photo studio I thought. And I totally agree, yours turned out stellar! I even have to say I'm a bit jealous! We couldn't get both of our girls to smile at the same time so we had to go with individual pics of the girls for the Christmas cards! Your kiddos did great, all smiled, and look super cute! Every once in a while you get lucky! Glad this was one of those times!! =)
