The Art of the Group Shot, Or How Not to Try and Take a Family Photo

The above album is from Christmas Eve. 

This debunks the myth that taking a ton of photos in a row of your kids will eventually yield at least one good one.

Clearly, this is not the case. 

Also, another fun photo tip is to NOT give your 2-year-old one of the carrots you are putting out for Santa's reindeer right before whipping out the camera. The best case scenario for this is an orange smile. 

I apologize for the amount of photos, but I am trying to make a point.
I am thinking about using this one for the Christmas card next year.

Memories people. Memories.


  1. Aileen - best. post. yet. PLEASE make that your xmas card for next year. Hope all is well! :)

  2. Thanks Stephanie! I am also partial to photo number 9, perhaps a Christmas collage.

    Hope all is well with you too! Thanks for reading.

  3. HILARIOUS!! I laughed so hard-
    All I can say about everything in your post is..... "All true." (:
    Happy New Year!
