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.
