Fiesta! The ten-day festival held in San Antonio every Spring, begins! This is definitely a favorite time of year for San Antonio residents (or those visiting). With a multitude of parades, Mexican food, margaritas, pinatas, parties and more; you really can find something to do every minute of the week. To top it off, you get to dress in the most fun, colorful attire all week (if you choose 😉 ).

My parents love to send out a Christmas card of their grandkids every year, but the newest baby wasn’t born in time for that.  This year my mom decided to do something completely different; a Fiesta card.  I recently took some pictures of all the grands (with much help from my sister, mom and sister-in-law) for said card. Let’s just say, it was a process.

Many times people only see the FINAL product of a picture.  This is after ALL the weeding out and editing happens. The final picture that was actually sent out by my mom looked very “put-together.”  Well let me just tell you, it didn’t start off that way. It appeared (on the card) that we have the most well-behaved, photogenic little angels.  Ha! In fact, the outtakes WAY out-number the chosen pics. Here is a glimpse into what REALLY happens during a shoot…..

 

 

We stop for kisses…

We try to control, I mean “help” the little ones…

We pester each other…

Then we get a “pep talk” (in this case, MANY pep talks)….

Sometimes we pick our noses….

and get very annoyed…

Or forget about personal space…

and definitely get very tired and delirious…

and then…..VOILA!

The final product!……with a lot of extra work; let’s be serious.

VIVA FIESTA!!!
