Family Pictures

Sunday, September 7, 2008

My brother Jacob is going to be leaving on his mission soon, so my parents decided we needed to do an updated family picture before he left. With me being the photographer and all, I got to take them....lucky me :) Not! I really am not a fan of taking my family's pictures and I defiantly hate being in them! But, it actually went pretty well considering the fact that we all have little kids that hated holding still and looking at the camera. I think my kids were probably the worst if you can' tell. It was also REALLY hard with lighting because it was SOOO sunny outside and there was NO good shade, so there are a couple sun patches on faces, but there was NOTHING I could do. Hopefully they are ok mom. I had to compose about 10 different heads into this image so that everyone was looking and smiling :) So we are...

Craig and I haven't gotten a picture together for a LONG time...so this will be nice to have, I think Craig looks so handsome in this picture :) Ggrrr Baby! I on the other hand am still trying to figure out how to smile without showing my braces.

Here we are...I am not a huge fan of this picture cause I think my kids don't look like their normal selves, hard to explain. But, we will probably end up using this for our Christmas card cause it is hard to get people to take some pictures for me. I added a texture to the background cause it was kinda boring...don't know if I like it yet :)

I had to show this picture of the grand kids, the 2 boy look stoned! It cracks me up. This was back at my mom's house MUCH better lighting...this took about 10 seconds to edit is all cause they lighting was so great. Oh, well I thought the park would be great...when we could have just done them at my parents house.

This is my and my Brothers & sisters. It has been a really long time since we have gotten a picture together. This still needs to be edited, but for those of you who know my family well, look how grown up we are all getting. I can't believe how big Jake & Joe are! I love my brothers and sisters and I hope we can always stay close like we are.

This is Jake pointing at all the places we guessed for him to go on his mission. We got one state side and one foreign choice. The winner gets to go to dinner with him and my parents. I am all about free food....Oh, yeah and spending time with my little Bro. I am so excited for you Jake, you are gonna be a GREAT missionary and I can't wait to see where you are going.

It is so good to see a picture of your family! Every one looks so happy!

Megan said...

WOW! Your picstures turned out way great. That would be a very handy talent to have (swapping heads) for pictures with so many people. I can't even get Annabelle to look at the camera when it is just her ;) I don't know why but I have a hard time with the pic of you and Craig with serious faces. Don't get me wrong, the picture is fantastic and you both look great. But I think when I think of you two I picture you laughing, so a serious picture just throws me off ;) You guys have such a beautiful family. And good luck to your little bro. Hope you win the free dinner!

Good job on the photo shoot. I didn't realize how big of a family you have...and so many grandkids! YOu are beautiful and I think the one of your family of four would be great in a Christmas card. Already thinking ahead...I am so not suprised:)!!!
