We have never sent out a holiday card before—I just never got it together to plan enough ahead and intentionally set up a photo shoot that would work for a card. But when I spotted some snaps of the Crystal Wynwood Mural last summer, I knew it was the perfect excuse to make the kids go take photos in front of a really amazing mural. Inspired by Miami's Wynwood Walls, this Crystal City mural features work from DC's No Kings Collective and local graffiti artists. It is bright, bold, graphic, and was the perfect backdrop for our holiday shots. Now that the holidays are over, I thought I'd share our outtakes!
I let the kids pick what they wanted to wear (within reason). Cam brought a backup outfit of course, but our original plan was to take a bunch of pictures and then get lunch. I snapped a ton of photos of them before we walked to a nearby strip of restaurants. They goofed off—dancing, playing rocks, papers, scissors, and just jumping around.
