Photo Shoot

Maybe if i show you this...
or this...
or this...
or especially this...



You'll understand why I'm even considering making big prints of this....

and this...
and this....
and especially this...
See? Those look fantastic now, no?

Why is it so hard to get all three of them to smile, keep their pose, look at me, act natural, and hold still all at the same time??!?!?! Am I asking too much!?!?!

I think I need to up the bribe. Gum just ain't cuttin' it anymore.

I wonder what bribes they used back when the kids had to hold still for hours, and there were no digital cameras with continuous shooting....fruit leather? peaches and cream? dates? YES! that's the answer! Dates!!

I just had to laugh! Those shots are adorable. And yes, seeing the worst definitely makes you appreciate the best.

You have me cracking up! I love that you are "saving" so much money on professional prints and you refer back to the "pilgrim" age for parenting advice... it all makes sense!

Hilarious! Thanks for posting the "real" along with the "ideal," which all to often is all we see on blogs. Love you!

I love that last one! I also love the one where G and A are pouting, thats more like it right. Thats really and truly a candid picture! You are doing so well Emily I can tell you are figuring out what you can do with your new lens, I'm impressed!

oh my gosh I LOVE those ones--forget about the posed stuff, I like candid, natural, etc. it's much more real and beautiful and true:)

Yeah, I definetly think that the dates would work with your kids, now my kids on the other hand, probably not! Jks! Too cute of pictures though, that is what life is all about, but I do feel your pain. That is why I hardly have any pics of all three kids together, it's just impossible, good luck!
