Since this our first year of marriage and our first year of being a “family” I wanted to take a family Christmas photo that I could use to send out as a holiday card this year. Well, my family consists of a dog and a cat who do not really care to cooperate for family photos.
This was the best we could do after several attempts. At least TDH and I look decent! And the dog is actually looking at the camera. Amazing! But the cat, oh the cat! She was looking at the window thinking, “maybe if I make a run for it and jump out the window I can kill myself so this hell they are putting me through right now comes to an end!”
Afraid my kitty was going to commit kitty suicide I decide it was best to work with what we had instead of torturing her through a longer photo shoot.
So instead, I found a picture of her where she was looking at the camera and…
Photoshopped her in! What do you think? Pretty impressive huh? Ok I know she looks kind of fake but it really does look like I am holding her in my lap, right? It took me awhile to figure out how to make it look semi-real and I was pretty damn happy with the result in the end.
Now, to make it Christmassy I bought some digital scrapbooking images from Peppermint Creative and put a border around the photo.
And this is our Christmas photo! Doesn’t it look good! Kitty actually looks real in this one, right? Just smile and nod people, smile and nod.
