Christmas Village

Wyatt and I visited our local Christmas Village in down town Ogden the other day. I went there because I wanted to do the traditional "visit Santa and sit on his lap trip" but the line was huge and I didn't want to wait. so we just looked at the lights. Plus every year they set up  little windows houses filled with different Christmas themes.

Now while we were there we ended up running into a man who dressed up as a Santa but had a cowboy Santa hat on instead. Once Wyatt saw him he ran up to him and pulled on his red jacket and kept saying "Santa! Santa!" until the nice man looked at Wyatt and proceeded to play along. I ended up taking a picture but it turned out awful and I refuse to show it. (I need to figure out how to take better pictures at night. I used my cameras flash because I couldn't see them and it turned that picture into a hot mess. ugh...)

Wyatt walked the whole way through and enjoyed every minute of it. (well at least until he peed his pants. I need to remember to take him to the potty. oops.)

It was a great time anyway. I think I am going to go back there and stand in that line so I can get that classic picture of Wyatt sitting on Santa's lap. I am determined to have one this year!!
(any tips to take a good picture in awful light? keep in mind I don't have any other lens besides my kit one or any flash beside my on camera one. those things are expensive!)

  3. This looks like so much fun - as for shooting in low light like that, I tend to try to meter off of whatever light I do have and hike up my ISO. It's tricky...that's for sure. I screwed up a lot of pictures last year because I didn't know what I was doing.
