Fact: getting everyone to look at the camera and not look distressed becomes exponentially more difficult with each added child. I have a photographer friend with nine children. She got a Christmas picture with all eleven members of the family looking fabulous. She said it took three days, and I’m pretty sure Photoshop was involved. Anyway, here’s what happened when I tried to get my children to sit still and pose for a 4th of July picture.
Sophia plots her escape.
Sophia is foiled.
STOP HUGGING ME.
Look, two out of three!
I gave up and tried individual pictures.
If I knew how to edit photos, I would Photoshop out that scrape on Sophia’s nose (from when she tried to escape out the back patio door), but alas, it will stay.
Seriously, why won’t these people let me go.
PLEASE STOP HUGGING ME.
