The P. Family

Oh wait... that's MY family! :) I told my husband that, for Mother's Day, I wanted nothing more than to attempt our own family photos. And it was NOT EASY. Trying to set up the shot (using a tripod), make sure everyone will be in focus, and then wrangle two toddlers to sit still and smile for a minute? It's a near-impossible task. And a stressful one. And this whole event would have been a failure if my daughter hadn't burped and cracked both kids up. That's right... This is my favorite shot of the day, post-burp:

The moral of the story? Hire a professional! I wish I could split myself in two, somehow, so I could be behind the camera AND in front of it with my family. There are a lot of things I don't love about this picture, but it will do for now. What really matters is that the four of us are in it together, and I got my Mother's Day wish! :)
