It’s always when you need them to the most that kids refuse to cooperate.

We attempted shooting at Chelsea Piers on the Hudson River, where we had our wedding reception 5.5 years ago, but it was just too cold to keep anyone’s attention.

Finally we went back home, warmed up, and got a winning shot.

Our holiday cards are arriving tomorrow so that I can mail them out just under the wire, in true Glamamom fashion.
