This post is heavy in pictures. We have yet to get a nice family photo of the four of us. I know this is common for most (if not all) young families. But, in all honestly, this is pretty ridiculous. We’ve tried.
Our experience with self-timing a photo of a family of three is pretty good. We got a lot of really great shots with little Hazel.
Then we became a family of four. There’s nothing wrong with this next picture, except for the fact that I had just birthed my second child only hours earlier. I was in my lounge clothes, covered with a blanket. Great first family picture, but not the type I’d put in a Christmas card.
Then we got this beauty at Christmas.
Then we went for the self-timer again. This is where it get’s good.
And tried again a few months later. Maybe the sunshine will help. We have about 25 shots from this lovely outdoor session. They all look the same.
We gave up on this endeavor for a while. Maybe our children just need sometime away from the camera…for a year or so. Here’s our latest attempts. I swear, this just gets better and better.
Perhaps a change of scenery is required. One of these days we’ll get a good family picture. For now we’ll just laugh at our failed attempts.
