We love to get a family photo each month, we may leave it to the last min and the photo always comes out ok. What I do not show is the millions of photos that get left on the cutting room floor? They end up clogging up my laptop with the rest of the photos that get unseen. So here is a glimpse into the hard work that goes into the photos we take each month.
1) The Lets get in the photo shot!
Daddy tries to round the children up and calm a baby. Little does he know that Ami has found a interesting pebble. The ball is in the shot we have not realised I am round the back checking were in frame and focus.
2) Second check on the Shot.
Daddy is not to sure on the framing so goes to check. Pants has lost focus and Ami is playing with that pebble still. Little Son Son is so cold he is furious. I am now feeling frustrated and wishing we would all sit down before my toes fall off.
3) One last look.
That blooming ball who brought it! Everyone is sitting together that is good. Little Son Son is very cross now and Daddy is hoping the view of the sea will cheer him up. Asti is bored and waiting for it to be over. Behind the camera I am smiling trying to look happy!
4) Get ready folks
Lets take the dummy out for a nice natural shot, oh wait he is screaming loudly put it back in. Ami is checking my pockets for sweets and Asti is well and truely lost.
So here we are behind the scenes of our little photos, its hard work and we take alot of photos to get a few good ones but its so worth it.
Ha! Always like that if I'm trying to get a picture of more than one child, even with one sometimes.ReplyDelete
Hehe! So real. We can never manage to get a shot when everyone's looking the same way!ReplyDelete
I actually really like the first one - it looks really natural! My kids hate being in photos and I don't think that we have any recent ones of the whole family together.ReplyDelete
I love digital photography as there are so many more opportunities for different shots- you are not wasting anything keeping trying for the "right" shot, and the "wrong" ones are often as good!ReplyDelete
Hehe how difficult is it to get everyone doing what you want for a photo?! Impossible at times. Luckily (or unluckily) I don't have a snazzy camera so at least that's one less thing to worry about :)ReplyDelete
We never manage a photo with us all in, looking in the same direction actually with our eyes open ;-)ReplyDelete
We rarely get a picture where we are all looking at the camera. Usually the kids are pulling funny faces or refusing to look xReplyDelete
I love this, it reminds me of our photo shoots! About 20 for every 1 good one! Love seeing your outakes :)ReplyDelete
This is spot on. It is like this and worse and as they get bigger they just stomp off!ReplyDelete
This sounds so famaliar nut I actually quite like the shots that go wrong as they are real lifeReplyDelete
Ha, well at least they are action shots!ReplyDelete
Despite the attempts to get that perfect shot, I like these ones xReplyDelete
lol Some good photos there, it can be so hard with kids getting one of everyone looking perfect.ReplyDelete
What would we all do without digital? I take at least a thousand photos every month...very rarely get a photo of us all nowadays though :(ReplyDelete
I love this, it's just like mine.ReplyDelete
It's almost impossible isn't it?
lol lol i so laughed at this as this is without a doubt what our photos look like!ReplyDelete
