Am I the only one who thinks that they are going to end up divorced by the end of a family photo shoot?
I always joke that I’m going to need these family pics to remember my husband by.
I mean, by the time we get dressed, fix hair, wash faces, put on shoes and accessories and try our best to look like perfection, it’s safe to say that we are all a bit on edge.
Then the drive to the photo shoot sounds a bit like this:
“Don’t touch your hair! Put your shoes back on! Don’t eat that Snickers! Did you just wipe your hands on your pants? Why are you even eating a Snickers!?!? We just ate! Don’t touch your brother! Are you kidding me! Come on, guys! An hour of normalcy is all I’m asking! Stop picking that scab! Did you just lick the window!?! Dang it, kid!!!”
I seem to have a pretty predictable reaction to stress. Whether it’s a birthday party, friends coming over for dinner or family pictures, the 30 minutes beforehand, I am a crazy lunatic, running around, trying to perfect everything. You’d think my family would be used to it by now, but they all get stressed out, too.
Our fall photo session was no different.
In fact, it may have been even worse than usual. Bear had a sinus and ear infection and was simply not a happy camper. The Hubs had a mile-long list of things he needed to do but since our photo shoot was in the middle of the day, he wouldn’t get a chance to do them. Emersyn insisted on wearing her leggings, but I did manage to pry her pink cowgirl hat from her head.
It was just a grumpy kind of day…
However, our amazing photographer somehow managed to get some really good shots, despite the fact that Bear didn’t even give a hint of a smile all day.
I’ve only seen these previews but I’m super excited to see the rest!
I always knew I was short, but Geez Louise! I look like a tiny tot in the last pic.
