I wanted to show you some of our portrait taking bloopers. It was a long day and the poor kids had to endure the sitting session twice because the first time we tried taking the pictures the sun was too high in the sky and as it came through the trees, some of the children were shaded and some were bright patches of sunlight.
Poor Henry was in a complete shadow while the baby above him reflected the sun off his white blanket. Not good at all.
One of the main reason for the kids all looking in different directions was that we had too many 'cooks in the kitchen'. Each nanny and grown up present was doing their level best to get the kids to smile and look at the camera but it ended up being very distracting to the kids.
Never mind, we got a good photo in the end and some funny moments out of it all.
Eventually we got everyone lined up and a pretty decent shot!
In case you missed the first time I posted this, here it is again!
Update: A few commenters asked how many shots it took to get this one. I took about 50 total. Probably 25 in the second session. It had to be done very quickly because kids have very short attention spans.
