Hybrid Photo Shoot

Yesterday began the never-ending quest for a very special Christmas Card photo. This new project is driving me BATTY!!! If it weren't for all the yummy treats, I would totally be packing my bags.

Out of 218 pictures (all with a flash, I might add), only 3 are even worth showing. Why? Because Patches will not sit still! He's blurry in almost every single one of them! I think it would be perfectly OK to use the pawsome shot of me alone, but mama did not agree. She said we can't leave Patchy out. Whatever.

The most perfect picture of all. Right?

See...blurry Patches ruining my shot.

A good one of Patches, finally.

Holy moley - 218!!!!!!!!!!!! It's no wonder you can still see with that stoopid flash going off every 30 seconds! You've got a couple of winners there Sparky! I think you and Patches can relax now!

You guys are soooo cute!!!! Mom is getting rady to start our Christmas shoot, too. She's having camera issues so we're lucking out so far. I have a feeling she's going to use her old camera that we have to hold still a long time because it's rally slow. I heop I look as cute as you do in your pictures.

Oh boy, those pictures sure are cute!! I love them all!
Love Clover xo

It may be blurry but that is a dang handsome shot of both you AND Patches together. You are so photogenic on your own though, Sparky!

Sparky said...

Wow, 218 pictures?! And I thought Lizzy took too many! I like that last one of Patches. It's too bad there aren't any good ones of both you and Patches together though.

Go Patches Go! Maybe you can be more photogenic next year? You might get coal in your stocking. Nice pictures, the effort paid off.


Ferndoggle said...

Sparky, you are Super Handsome in that solo shot, but we agree...Patches is family. He's gotta be in the picture.

We're struggling with ours too. Our cards are gonna be a little later than most, I fear!


Spencer said...

Very nice! You both look very beautiful!

Randi said...

Oh, Poor Sparky - Patches won't sit still & you have to endure HUNDREDS of pictures with a flash...I just close my eyes & it makes my mom mad...too try to see straight when all you see is a glowing ball in front of you...


Love & Licks,

Those individual photos of you two are amazing! Patches is like my sissy, Stella. Zoom, zoom, zooming around or always wiggling. It's hard to get a good photo of her without me pinning her down.

Can't wait to see what you finally got together.

Goob love,

Hi Sparky! This is CoCo from Puggle Nation. I'm sorry you are no longer on that site...but you are right, too many rules! I think I'm starting to fall madly in love with you! You look super handsome in your Xmas poses. Patches looks cute too!

Huggie Licks,
