Clearly, I have not tried to get the "perfect family shot" since having children... or at least since having a one year old. The scene that ensued resembled a cross between a circus, a photo studio and just pure chaos...
Here are the pictures that we got... they actually look quite dignified. We did get some nice shots, none of those picture perfect shots where everyone is smiling and looks like they could be on the front cover of OK magazine, but I'm happy with them. The REAL shame is that I didn't get a photo from my perspective.
Picture the scene. Brother holding camera, snapping shot after shot after shot... Mum kneeling beneath camera waving frantically and calling "Ava - smile!!", sister dancing a jig on the right of photographer brother while making crazy noises in an attempt to provoke smile from said one-year-old, and Father on the left, jumping, pulling faces and making a cross between screeching and whooping noise.
How could we not smile?!
That shot would have been priceless!
PS - I've been nominated for two awards in Britmums "Brilliance in Blogging" awards... If you enjoy the blog and want to support me, please do take two minutes and vote!
Thank you! :D
Nominations close on April 12th...
