Jones Family Christmas Pictures 2013

Posted by Heather at Thursday, December 05, 2013

In early November, we took our annual trip to Portrait Innovations in Huntersville to get our annual Jones family Christmas pictures taken. Katy woke up in a good mood, excited to be getting all dressed up. I bought her a cute, new bow for the occasion (gotta have a cute, new bow!) and I curled her hair. We got to the studio with plenty of time to spare. We were greeted by a gentleman named David, who introduced himself as our photographer for the day.

And that's when it all went south....

Before we had even gotten there, Katy informed us that she wouldn't smile if our photographer was a guy. She has this thing about men she doesn't know (and even some that she does know and/or are related to- sorry, Uncle Doug!). So, when David, our photographer asked her to sit/stand/smile, Katy was an unwilling participant. There was some pouting... There was a near meltdown... There was bribing... Let's just say that poor David has to really work for his commission!

In the end, the results were *surprisingly* smiley and happy. I was happy with what poses we did get (even though we didn't get a chance to use some of the personal props that I had brought along for the occasion).

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words but in this case, this picture is all about what ISN'T being said and all the drama that went into producing those happy, smiling faces.... ;-)
