Photo Shoot

Here's a sampling of how well my Christmas photo shoot with the kids went last weekend. I just wanted to make Christmas cards!!!

Here's my very favorite...

Okay, they weren't ALL this bad, I got a few cute close-ups of each of them, but certainly no good ones of them together, and none that show off their cute coordinating outfits. ugh. Now I know why I've always paid people to do this for me. Gotta work on this...

I think at this age, our money & times is well spent taking them to a photographer. Though the memories of the photo shoot and all the crazy pictures...PRICELESS!! Cute kiddos those two are!

Those are hilarious! I think you should make copies of the last photo to send out. Adorable.

ha ha ha...I had to laugh. That actually seems like the 1st year photos we had taken at penneys for Caleb. He screamed and the only reason we got cute pics was because he had his bunny and my cell phone. :) Professionals don't always make it better I guess.

Seriously, I have been dreading family photos. Getting all three to smile and sit still....

Oh, how I sympathize! So many times I've ended up in tears and pleading, "please! I don't even care if you smile - just everyone look in remotely the same direction and not touch anyone else!" And whenever I see a picture of siblings together, I point it out to my kids and say, "see? this is all I want! Just one picture of you together and being nice." Doesn't seem to make a difference!! Who even came up with the idea of a Christmas card with the kids on it? Make them come and get the shot!
