family pictures 2016

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,

 some magic,

 a gun show, 

 and whatever this is.

 You'll know it's time to call it a day when:
 there are dirty fingers,
 grumpy faces,
 and this much climbing!
