we needed a lot more than cheese

Thursday, November 26, 2009

Do you know how hard it is to get six people to look good in a picture all at the same time?
It's nearly impossible. Especially when four of them are 11 and under!
Getting our family pictures taken is like pulling teeth - a long and painful process. And this time was no exception. A decent picture usually requires an act of Congress and a miracle from above.
This time it didn't require either,...but we came pretty darn close.
You can almost see the level of cooperation in their faces. Alek and Anya did great...Nick was on the fence, but Maddie wanted nothing to do with sitting still. It wasn't until the photographer started the kids' only photos that she warmed up - and even then, not until after Shad and I left the room. ;)
Oh well. Its a decent picture of the six of us, especially since I forgot about our appointment until 20 minutes before we were supposed to be there. Hence, the mismatched and less than stellar photo outfits.
Thankfully, it will be just fine for the church directory. And we're set for another year.
Whew!

Well,you almost have the jewel tones going in the photo.
Kudos to you for making the appointment. I run the directory shoots--just one of the blessings of being the pw--and no-shows kill me every time.

Looks pretty good! Esp. since you got everyone ready so quickly! I'd have been a stressed, sweaty mess.

I think the picture is great and I love that you all aren't wearing all the same thing! Everyone has their own personality!
