Want A Good Laugh?

Taking family photos is one of my least favorite things to do, hence why we usually do it only once per year for our Christmas cards. It's stressful to say the least and I dislike it very very VERY much. It's near impossible to get a perfect family shot with all of us looking at the camera while smiling, so over the years I have learned to keep my expectations of the outcome pretty low.

Our first attempt at photos was a bust. We were dressed and ready to go, but Jordyn had a tummy ache and the weather wasn't cooperating so we canceled. The second attempt...not so great. BRIGHT sunshine in the face and hot temperatures made for grumpy kids. Looking through the 420 pictures we took (not ONE is usable) I found the below string of photos. Bryan and I sat and laughed at these forever.

This is a perfect showing of how our family photos go...

Explaining to the kids we are going to count to 3 and jump...
all while looking at the camera and smiling.

As you can see Bryce already has other ideas...

Smile? No way, taking my sister down is way more fun...

"Gotcha!!"

Keep an eye on Jordyn...

Here is comes...

The face says it all...



Attempt three happened this weekend.
Pictures aren't perfect, but promising!

Hilarious!!!

I actually think you could use the sequence if you wanted to use humour :)
My goodness her face really does say it all, don't mess with her!

Good luck with finding a picture that suits all of your personalities. To be fair it wouldn't be The Jones' if you were all straight in a row and serious :)
You guys are way more fun than that!
Take care xxx
