I spent some time on Thanksgiving as a photographer's assistant, but the results weren't what we hoped for. My mother-in-law wanted to get a picture of Michael and Sophie to send out with her Christmas cards, but things went the way these things sometimes do. It looked a lot like this:
This was the day I tried to get Michael and Sophie's 17-month picture. I don't normally take quite so many pictures in one attempt. The idea for this video came to me after a few shots, so I tried to capture more of the acrobatics that often go into this ritual. Picking out some photos for my in-laws to use in their Christmas cards just now I was reminded that I never posted this.
The first picture is what I actually used.
