The real photos

Every year we take a photo for Mum and Dad for Christmas. It is very tempting to just show you this. The finished article. But my word, did it take a while to get to this stage! 



Trying to persuade an 18yr old and a 16yr old into a photo shoot is hard enough. Trying to get them to then behave on said photo shoot is impossible...





And then there are pictures like this... I mean what is a girl to do?!

50 photos later we have 5 that can be used. A good ratio I think.

Thanks for stopping by

Only 50? We took over 200 to get our family xmas card photo, worth every shot, & I'm sure your parents will feel the same about yours :)
A lovely gift.

Awesome fun :) I just tried to get a shot of my 2 for a picture frame for their dad, you would have thought I was asking for blood! The youngest didn't want to be anywhere near his big brother, the big brother didn't want to smile!! I could go on but I finally got the picture required. Merry Christmas to you all
