Do you think the inspiration of swinging from a tree is a good one? And that Wes and I could keep up? NO!!
Do you use a picture of the three "kids" only? And, of course, John being "John"?
Do you use a picture where the participants are randomly attired with no pre-planning as to color harmony...sort of a "Come as you are" theme that represents real life? And one where John is perched to look taller than Jed? And my hair is bad? And Anne is squinting?
Do you go with a special effect of sepia? Do you go with casual and light-hearted?
So, when is it time to rethink the whole Christmas picture thing? Is it once the kids graduate from high school, once they get married? Or do the "empty nesters" just go back to sending their two profiles with an an exotic locale background they have recently visited? Or, do they wait for the Grandchildren (who will, no doubt, be highly photogenic!!) to come and begin the family photo sessions again as that group grows? Hmm...I can see this issue is not going to be easily resolved! Any advice?
