Christmas Card photos

HELP! My most wonderful, sweet, great, favorite-ist, one-and-only sister took some photos of me and the fam today and I have searched through all the 145 pictures and narrowed it down to these 4. I need y'all's opinion. Cuz I'm all about being motivated by approval. And if I get any votes for these pictures than I won't make Tyler re-take them. Which will mean we'll end up divorced if I have to do that . . . so no pressure or anything, but vote. Just click on comment and leave the number (and any pertinent commentary.) And then, you'll still be surprised when you open your Christmas card and your photo won. And if you don't vote I'm crossing you off the card list this year . . . JUST JOKIN'. I'm all about empty threats, don'tcha know???
Option #1

Option #2

Option #3

Option #4

And yes, I'm still grateful for stuff, I just haven't had time to sit down and write about it. Soon, soon.

Wow! She takes great pictures. They look like she is a pro!!! They are all really good but I would say I like #3. Good luck...

Donna said...

#4!

erin did a great job. kudos to getting all the kids looking in most of them

you know me. i am way super picky and anal about photos beings i get paid to do it.

my vote is for #3.

with brock being in the center, his face in #4 kind of says something like he is totally not digging the situation.

mackenzie and brevin look kind of more "posed" in #4 and uncomfortable plus you got mackenzie scratching her foot with her finger and brevin is doing the grit your teeth thing and caylee has cheesy grin.

i like #3 because the mannerisms seem more natural and there seems more of a family connection. caylee is leaning in toward tyler. mackenzie looks comfortable. briggs has his hand on top of tyler's arm and the other hand on his leg which i find sweet. i also like that brevin has his armed wrapped around yours.

pick #3. trust me.

chris jenkins said...

i meant briggs in the center not brock. oops.

Erin said...

I'm gonna have to study the pics a little more before I make my pick...but WHY are these all in black & white when you ALL WERE COORDINATING??? I thought you did an excellent job with colors this go round, so what's up? I do like the black & white. But you do need to give yourself props for the color combo, and at some point post all y'all in color. :-)

chanel said...

they are all so good!!! wow!
I like 3. think color would be great too cause Im sure you're all matching! :)

Your family looks awesome!

Hello Sarah! Thanks for commenting on my blog the other day. It was good to hear from you. Elder Pyle is doing great still, just got transferred back to the "rich" side of Vegas, but neglected to tell us where! Boys! He just passed his year mark on Friday, and had his birthday on Thursday. It was an eventful week for him.

And now my vote is for #3 first, and #4 second. What an adorable family!

I vote for #3 because everyone is looking in the direction of the camera and smiling naturally. They are all awfully cute. #4 is a close second. I get major anxiety just thinking about trying to get a decent Christmas card photo every year.

Tiffany said...

My vote is #4.

Justiel said...

Go for #1. So cute.

Beth said...

Definitely #3!

Beth said...

Oh, and I'm with Erin. Where's the Color??? I KNOW you were so coordinated.

The Carino's said...

My vote is #3. It doesn't look "painful" for anyone in that one. I also vote for color, unless of course, you just found the perfect paper to use for making your cards and the color of your clothes just don't match that perfect paper. : )

I vote for Number 2 it is more fun!!!

MaryAnn said...

Definitely #1. But do you really care what I think?

Amy said...

My votes are for 2 & 4. I really like how Briggs is holding his head up with everybody else in #2. Great job with the posing. I wish I would've looked at these before taking pictures of my SIL's family this afternoon. :)

Stac said...

I think 2 is the cutest pose but I think everyone looks the best in 3 so 3. or 2. dang thats a tough one. Ok 3. Final.

Angela said...

My vote is #3.

Erin said...

I say 2 or 4. Brock looks way too onery (how do you even spell that?) and mad in #3. And I like the arrangement/posing of y'all in #4 better than #3. 2 is fun. I like it too.

Kathy said...

They're all cute, but I like #2 the best.

Julina said...

I like #2. Then #1. Then #4, then 3. Take what you want from it.

Troy and Nancee said...

I like #4, then #1. Looks like after all the different votes, you are right back where you started.

MollyE said...

#4, at least you have four to choose from! They all look good to me.

Alexis said...

I like #3. No need to take them again. They look good. I really don't want you and Tyler to get divorced so even they weren't good I would lie and tell you they were great! That is not the case here though. Pictures with children never quite turn out how we envision them.

Web said...

I like #3 - for your smiles
I like #2 - cause Briggs looks adorable holding himself up
I like #1 - for the arrangement of bodies...

Really you can't go wrong. I'm all for color too. Although, I do the same debate every year...color won out last year, so I think we are back to B&W this year.
Good luck.

Tristen said...

My vote is #4. They are so cute!

Nan said...

ABSOLUTELY 2!!!! BEST ONE HANDS DOWN!! DAMN YOUR FAM IS B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!!!!!!!!!!!!

annilee said...

I like them all! Especially number 1 and 3! You can't go wrong with any of them! What a super photogenic family!

Doty6strong said...

Way to go Sarah.... the voting thing looks divided! Just use them all! My vote is for #2, so fun and non-traditional.

The Hulls said...

How did you get such fabulous shots with everyone smiling? I like them all, but #2 looks like a fun one for Christmas cards:)

Sarah said...

I like #4 for the arrangement of everyone #2 is super cute for a christmas card pic. I'd use both.

Cyndi said...

I love #3. So sweet!

John Petersen said...

#2 for the card—it's different and very cute. Tyler has never looked better and shouldn't have to pose again.

Jenn S. said...

I am *amazed* that you (or Erin rather) got 4 options of all 7 of you looking fabulous! Why can I not get a good picture of my two little girls?

I love #4 and #1.
