In October, we got all dressed up in our coordinating clothing, grabbed the camera and tripod, and took family photos. About every other year or so, I get brave and attempt to take our family photos by myself, with the timer on my camera. Sometimes it works out fine, sometimes not. This year was a little easier because I can now sync my camera and my phone so I can set up the photo better, and use the phone as a remote, and not have to run from the camera each shot. I still haven't discovered a good way to make little kids look at a camera on a tripod with no one behind it yet. Someday.
These two are best friends and like to get on each others nerves, all at the same time!
I could just eat them all with a spoon!
"Now watch me whip"
Sometimes the silliness just breaks through--we can't even help it!
Mama and mini
Sometimes I think the silly photos are the best!
What a cute couple, right?!
And here are a few that might never get printed and framed, but had to be added to illustrate what a typical family photo session is like:
Every good photo session needs a flying break,
a tumbling break,
a dance break,
a gun show,
and whatever this is.
You'll know it's time to call it a day when:
there are dirty fingers,
and this much climbing!
