I had this great idea yesterday morning when Max and I were loading up in the car: “this frost kinda looks like snow! And if I use a fast enough lens, I can make this work!” Wahoo! We have only had one snow this year so far and I REALLY need to get our Christmas card pic taken, like, NOW! So Max and I got up at 7am this morning and headed down to our line of pine trees (Forrest is SUPER proud of these 20 trees that are so PERFECTLY straight!) and attempted to make my vision. As we were leaving the house, I grabbed my new pocket wizards and my speedlight and a light stand, but as we started walking, Max wasn’t doing so well (he’s only been walking for 2.5 weeks now) and wasn’t thrilled that the frosted grass was so cold, so I just left the light stand so I could carry him. HA! I should have figured I wouldn’t get the chance to even use it, so it was a good decision!:) Not long after our arrival at the tree line, Max became very unhappy VERY fast. These were the results. Maybe Daddy will help us tomorrow morning and we can get this right. OR, maybe we’ll actually get some SNOW!! ORRRR, I have one more idea but it involves purchasing lots of outdoor string lights….. guess you’ll just have to wait and see what I come up with!:) For now, enjoy my delightful son:



Don’t worry, folks, he survived!!:)
