Photography 101

Here’s the deal:

People who have 0-2 children will often comment how they would like to see an updated picture of all of our kids together.  Join the club.  The one sitting out on display in our house is of Caroline when she could barely crawl and Grant still had all of his baby teeth (circa Easter ’06)!  We haven’t had a ‘group’ Christmas card photo in 2 years. 

Now, people with 3+ children (especially if any are under the age of 5) know exactly what I am talking about.  We thank the Lord for programs like Photo Shop just so that we can sleep at night knowing that we “made” a family portrait out of the 32 digital pictures we snapped in less than 45 seconds.  I have become 1/2 an expert at splicing heads and (if you didn’t know this before) you may in fact own a couple of our past Christmas cards with just such work done.

So, I thought I would share a video clip – a mere 6 seconds – but a documentation of why it is impossible at best to get a nice picture of 3 kids together.  This was a slip up in that the camera was set to “movie mode” while we were trying to take a still picture, but illustrates my point to a tee!!!!!!!!!!
