You Capture - Family
I suppose the word family implies the whole thing. As in all six of us. But we're traveling, so I don't have a tripod with me. And really, who am I fooling sounding all professional using words like tripod and stuff? Even if we had the tripod, I have no idea how to use the timer on the camera.
I suppose I could have gotten my better half in the picture too, but I decided instead to make this a kids-only picture. What else is new?
Not that this picture was any easy feat, mind you. Although I rethought my bribe approach (too much of that already occurs), it indeed took much, um, persuasion to get them to leave their hotel TV to sit nicely on the stairs. And by nicely I mean without kicking, scratching, pinching each other. (See how nicely my oldest has her hands resting on Michael's shoulders? Well, that is NOT a look of happiness and cooperation on his face. He's waiting for me to snap the picture so he can swipe her hands away and then turn around and do who knows what to her if I don't stop him in time.)
So here it is...my family picture. Or 1/2 family picture. Or something like that. You can see my fave picture of a member of the family from this trip here.
