This last week while sitting in French class I was thinking about how much I love stop motion photography. My thoughts then moved to our christmas card and how much I did not want to do the same ole same ole Christmas card. I thought how cool it would be to do a stop motion christmas card. Then I reigned in my idea and thought “I would love to do a chalk scene and have our family lay on it”. I have seen this with little kids all over the place but never with an entire family (not that it isn’t out there, I just haven’t seen it). After class I shot a text to Elizabeth that started with “stay with me”. Then I described what I wanted to do. I asked if she would take the pics for me and if she wanted to do her family at the same time. It makes all the effort more more worth it when you get two for the price of one. We both decided not to buy any new outfits and just shop in our closet. We both already had chalk and E had a great driveway to use. We decided to go with a city scape drawn in chalk and stars and a moon E cut out of poster paper. I pretty much love the end product for the Moon family:
Then we decided to do a floating in the sky version:
Unfortunately our kiddos were in NO mood to be laying on the ground. Chloe refused to lay anywhere and is sobbing in pretty much every frame ha! I am hoping we will try it again before I have to mock up my christmas cards!
