Our Group Photos on Christmas

It's not easy getting everyone to pose for a group picture! First both Allison and Marie looked away just as I pressed the button. Then Marie did not smile in the second shot, but I think it's okay anyway.

There are ways to combine pictures so that everyone is smiling, but that requires smiles from everyone in at least one of the images, plus it sometimes looks fake so I'm not bothering with it.

Frank took the third picture, with me standing behind my daughters. Yes, they are taller than I am!


  1. it's hard to get everyone paying attention at the same time but i think they are all nice family photos! merry christmas and happy new year!

  2. You all have those beautiful, prominent cheekbones. Hope your holiday was lovely.

  3. Great family photos! It is hard to get everyone smiling and looking in the right direction, but just having the family all together is nice.

  4. Hilary, thanks! My daughters have some Native American blood from their father's side. When Marie was a teen she put her hair in braids and wow! Instant Pocahontas!
