Family Pictures 2012

You know how sometimes things work out a little differently in your head than they do in real life? 

I did that last week.  I thought to myself 'Self.  You should take your own family pictures.  And you should include the dog.  How hard can it be?'

Haha. Ha.  Hahahahahaha.  Stupid Bekah-of-four-days-ago.  Stupid, stupid, stupid.
 So anway....the pics weren't awesome.  Not by a long shot.

Every time I set the timer and ran back to get into position the dog thought I was playing and started jumping around, and then Jack caught a wild hare  and started making faces. 
I mean, the kissy lips are cute, but not really what I was hoping for, you know?
 Awesome.

This next one probably would have been the best...but a certain someone once again bombed it.
Thanks kid.   

Oh here is another one that would have been good, but...
Oh yeah, Jack was HIDING BEHIND A TREE.  And then he had an emotional breakdown when he realized we were out of gummies. 
Oh dear.

And then.  AND THEN! We found an awesome covered bridge just minutes from our house and wanted to take a picture in it.  This was going to be it, I could feel it!

Until we saw that a precious little dog had been hit on the side of the road. 
Awful.  (He didn't actually see it, he was just mad because we decided not to go in the bridge, and we didn't want to tell him the real reason we turned around).

So then, we went home, ordered a pizza, and called it quits.  I'm thinking this will just be our Christmas card this year...

...it's fitting.  I mean really, I don't think anyone can bomb a photo session like we can bomb a photo session, you know?

    You should get a remote for your camera. Mine was under $20 from Amazon. Works great.

    1. I keep meaning to get one! Its one of those things I forget about until I actually need it! I did go in to our local camera shop to pick one up, but their cheapest one was 40 bucks! Haha uhhh holy markup?

  3. I'm really impressed that you even attempted this!

    I always tell my clients who are frustrated with their kids for not looking at the camera and/or smiling, "this is your life right now. In 5 years your kids WILL look at the camera and smile." I know if I was on the other side of the camera I would be super frustrated with my boys "ruining" the pictures, but it's totally not the case. This is your life right now... to everything there is a season, yes? :)

    Cute cute pics!

    1. Haha thanks! Ill probably use the second one, because even though I wasn't going to the kissy lips, he is still really cute. Or I'll try to get a real photographer to do it! Haha

  8. They still came out super cute! Very candid and real!

  9. I adore the last one. Many years from now it will bring back far more memories than the "perfect" family photo. It would remain on my frig for a long time, because it says to me look as us, our crazy little family full of love. That is so hard to capture on film. Great job!

  10. Lol, this post is hilarious! I feel your pain, family photos with kids are impossible...and I've never tried to include a dog. That one with Jacks eyes closed is sooo close to being perfect too. Freakin kids, lol.
