Today we are engaging in the great endeavor known as family pictures. For my mother's birthday, all the kids got together to pitch in for a family photo shoot for everyone. Jamie, Avalyn, Jude and I. Brooke, Ryan, Ezra, and Archer. Taylor. Mom and Dad. And perhaps a few extended family.
This is always an interesting process, even with all adults. It's going to be even more interesting with four children four and under. Two of them at least understand the concept of taking pictures. To stay and smile at the camera for however brief. They understand what to do when you say "Cheese."
The other two - who knows. The 18.5 month old and the 13 month old I'm sure are going to do exactly what they want to do and will let us know if we are interfering.
Sometimes this makes for great candid shots. Hopefully that is the case here. At others, it's herding jello. We shall see what the day brings.
Further, the weather has a great potential to be uncooperative. Again, we shall see where we end up.
Pray for us. We may need it.
I'll post the results here when they are available.
