The Elusive "Easter Photo"...


*Sigh*

All I wanted was to get a photo of my nicely dressed kids on Easter (minus their biggest bro, who was at his dad's for the holiday). Is that too much to ask?

Apparently it is...just take a look:




I wanted a photo of my kids all together...only Baby Girl wasn't having anything to do with it.

But, WAIT!! If you look close, there she is:


My efforts were futile, and I gave up as soon as this happened (dang baby bros, always gotta be goofy...but I think it's kinda cute! And, I think they are too...):


Then, Uncle J joined in the fun (i.e. torture) and mercilessly teased Belle (but, as you can see, she didn't really mind too much!):





At long last, I attempted to stage a family photo:





*Groan* I give up.

  1. Oh, you are not alone! I don't think I have one really good family photo. We've tried many times, but it never works the way I had planned. You know, life is a lot that way, so maybe it's good our photos are, too!

  6. This post makes me think of that commercial for Windows Cloud program where the mom edits faces and stuff to get the perfect photo.

    I think they're cute regardless, though.

  8. This reminds me of that commercial for Windows 7 I believe? Something about a cloud? Anyway, the mom finally photoshops her kids "good" faces onto their bodies, lol!

  10. That is one gorgeous family - matters not that they couldn't all look at the camera at the same time. :) Give it about two more years and you'll have nothing but lovely shots because they will all have learned that the sooner they cooperate, the sooner it will be over!

  15. Seriously funniest thing today! Your family photos look like mine. Being a photographer and having the worst family pictures is the most embarrassing! But, you have a pretty good looking family!
