Behind the Card

{Press play.}

It’s a Christmas miracle!  We’ve had a busier than normal holiday season, so getting this video posted to the blog before Christmas was actually over is nothing short of miraculous.

The first part of the video shows Jon setting up the lighting and getting the camera just right, then we started shooting.  We originally tried to get all 4 of us into one shot, but Brady was the loose cannon.  He just wanted to play with the balloons, so shortly after we started he got kicked out.

Then we continued to shoot a series of photos with the self timer, and finally finishing with me throwing a bunch of balloons into the air for Jon to add in after the fact.  It really is amazing how Jon can take the chaos pictured above and turn it into this:

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

  3. This is great! I thought you might have stuck the balloons to the wall but I should have known it was more high tech than that! Another beautiful Christmas card!

  4. Always look forward to these! You all are photogenic (including Brady) and your hubby is super talented! So much fun!
