On Sunday I was chatting with Julie Love and sent her over to check out Tara Whitney's blog. I LOVE Tara's photography and LOVED how she persuaded Kristina from 2Ps to drag her sofa outside for a family photo shoot.
Julie then dared me to drag our sofa outside for some photos. So I did.
The family thought I was crazy but obliged me - to start with. Jamison especially, tired of the whole thing within a short period of time. It is VERY difficult to get everyone to look at the camera at the one time without a dumb look on their face!
I took over 200 photos. So yes, no wonder he was tired of it! Some turned out ok. Nothing amazing but there were some nice ones. Our front yard slopes so there was no point setting us up out there so we sat out the back which wasn't the best out look but it was ok. And the light was coming in from the wrong direction.
But it wasn't bad for a first attempt.
The ONLY half way decent family shot is this one
And its not a particularly good one of any of us - well except for the dog! And Ken's shirt buttons are bursting...great fashion look.
And some more
