Easter Frustration

All I wanted was one good picture-really is that too much to ask. Noone really wanted to cooperate. First it was the sun and we had to turn around and then it was just the fact that the sun was even out that the kids didn't like. Outtake after outtake after outtake. Frustration and yet a semi acceptable final product. Guess I'll have to take what I can get even if my kids absolutely didn't want to give it to me. Really it shouldn't be so hard to get a picture of your children-someone should find a remedy for that and they might be a millionaire!

Allie look at me,Lucas open your eyes,Caleb eyes at the camera. Come on now-one picture is all I ask!




Allie hands down,Caleb and Jacob look at me,Lucas open your eyes!


Jacob look at me,Allie sit still,Lucas OPEN your eyes!


Jacob and Lucas OPEN YOUR EYES!!!


Final semi acceptable product. I swear-one day they'll cooperate I hope!

our kids didn't want to cooperate this Easter either. You may not have gotten the picture you "wanted" BUT the ones you did get are beautiful and priceless :)

Kelly said...

I can't imagine. I can barely get 3 to look at the camera. :)

That is how our photo shoots always go too! I think I took at least 50 pictures on Easter morning and ended up with 2 good ones! I think the last one turned out really cute:)

I think they are all cute!! I used to care about getting the kids to look and smile at the same time but now I have learned to love the other candid pictures because that is the true them...and they are so much better sometimes! :)

I'm glad you ended up with a great photo! I know that trying to get a good shot of my 2 kids can be hard enough..... I can't imagine 4 kids! :)

JC said...

Vicky said...

Yeah with that many kids, it's gonna be tough to get a pic! A lot of Leala's pictures are ones of her not posing.. lol.. I still haven't completely gone through the Easter pics yet.. I need to edit them.. ahh!

Paige said...

LOL, this sounds like my family! They never listen at all. I always want the perfect picture but sometimes the perfect picture of my family is when we aren't being all stiff and fake smiling at the computer

Becca said...

Ha that was too funny the way you worded each picture. One day. I tell ya the 2 little boys look so much alike, & where in the world does Lucas get that red hair at? :)
