How to Take {Perfect} Christmas Pictures

^^^  Title typed in sarcasm font ^^^
A fellow blogger recently posted about how to take pictures in front of the Christmas tree with that fancy bokeh effect.  Bokeh is the photog term for blurred lights.  I am not a fancy photog, but I do like bokeh, so I thought I would give it a shot.
So, here’s how to take {Perfect} Christmas pictures:
Select two really cute subjects.
Boom.  Done.
Change your settings on your camera.  (I will defer you to this post because Becky is good at explaining this technical stuff and I am not.  Also, her post was the one I read that inspired this little photo sesh, and she is a good teacher.)
Then, get snap happy.  
And, by snap happy, I mean take 478 pictures of your cute kids, while praying for patience and one – just one – perfect picture.
Okay, so they all kind of turned out perfect in a goodness -they’re-cute kinda way, and I kinda wanted to send Beckham to the moon for his hilarious six-year-old humor.
Lastly, go through your camera and literally find ONE where both kids are smiling and looking at the camera.  
Amazing.  I don’t even know how it happened.
{Perfect} Christmas pictures
And, by golly, would ya look at that bokeh?!  #nailedit
This was the last picture I snapped.  I think it sums up how we all felt by the time I was done subjecting them to the torture that is posed pictures…
And that, my friends, is how to take {Perfect} Christmas pictures!
Happy Friday!!!!
