Everybody say 'Cheese!'

It isn't very often we gather the family around for a posed picture.

And every time we do, I remember why we don't.  

For one thing, Greg isn't a big fan.  He prefers candids.  But I can see why.  

Mean, ol' me, I made him kindly requested he sit down for a picture with his boys on Father's Day right quick after church and before lunch.

We took four, and, believe it or not, this is the best one:
In addition to Alan hamming it up, Dale's hair sticking out, and Tyler's diaper bulging, you may also notice that Dale's shirt is untucked (I gave up fighting that battle a long time ago), and Tyler looks a little skeert.

But hey!  Greg looks great!  

How often do you try to gather the fam around for a posed shot?  Any tips?

A photo like that is more interesting than a stiff posed shot. You're right, Greg looks great. :)

I don't remember the last time we had a family picture.

I think the pic looks great!

One word: Photoshop :)

I like it. I would not change a thing (other than you should be in it too). 30 years from now, those type pictures are priceless.

I am still laughing about this. Too funny! In Dale's defense, he did ask me to tuck his shirt in Sunday morning.

Christy - that is so funny that he asked you to do that. I had no idea!

Why do all men hate pictures? I have to constantly remind Brian he'll be glad I took all these millions and millions of pics when we are old and lonely.

We try and get one of all of us, whenever we can. I don't worry about how it turns out, as long as everyone is in it.

And I take all the kids together pretty often, again not really caring how it turns out (although I get lucky once in a while).

I'm not in any.
