Family Pictures 2015

This year's fall photo shoot was a massive challenge. I think it's getting harder each year. :) We headed to the park early, and I asked Mitch to meet us there after work. I spent the first hour or so taking individual pics of everyone except Micah (I'm going to shoot his senior photos on a completely different day, hopefully soon). I think we were there too long, and everyone started unraveling after just a few family photos. I also am puzzled that sometimes I can just nail it with the camera settings, and at other times I completely mess up. Some of the shots have excellent exposure while others needed some editing. I'm still very much an amateur! Mercy was incredibly uncooperative. I even took her out on Friday afternoon to do re-takes, and it was a bust. Oh well...maybe next year, right?

Here are the results, and I'll try to pick some funny outtakes to share also.

 {That one was *almost* a good one}

 {Silly faces}

 {Pretend to fight with someone}

{Josh got grass in his shirt, and took it off to shake it out. Obi copied him, then stayed that way for a few pictures. I lost it. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry, so I laughed so hard I cried. We were so done.}

I'm considering new ideas for next year. I hope that someone comes up with something brilliant. Maybe I'll find it on Pinterest.
