We try to get family pictures taken every year or two. This year, pictures were a high priority because our family has grown. DJ got married this summer, bringing Shiloh into our family. Obviously, it’s important to have a family picture that includes her.
So, we got everyone together when DJ and Shiloh came for a belated Thanksgiving celebration and set up a bunch of pictures.
First, we needed to get some individual headshots and “family” shots (my parents, DJ and Shiloh, Isaiah and me). Those took some shuffling around and craziness, but we pulled it off somehow.
Then, it was time to cram everyone into the small space in front of our Christmas tree for a whole group photo. Of course, the room isn’t quite big enough to back the camera up and get a wide shot. That would be too easy. But, with some serious effort, we managed to get it set up and set the timer. A few photos later, we had our shot.
Before I could take the camera down, Isaiah had to get a few special shots and my mom and DJ wanted to pose with the cats. Once those were done, it was time to download everything and see what we had. We definitely got some winners!
