Why This Is A Great Picture

 
Okay, maybe it's not the greatest picture. But I tried.
How on EARTH am I supposed to get a family picture with everyone actually smiling and looking at the camera!? What do you do?

My dad took this picture on Thanksgiving and it is a great shot of me and my husband, and even David....but Sam and Yael just don't want to look in unison at the camera.

Oh well....
Go see other people's best shots this weekend....

 Check out this week's Haveil Havalim, too!

I think it's next to impossible to take a great picture, even with props and a professional photographer. By some stroke of strange luck, I got a self-timed picture of my whole family and my guests today and EVERYONE was looking at the camera. Braedy had his finger up his nose, but you know what? I'll take it.

Great picture! :)

It IS a great picture - all those who are looking at the camera look terrific, and the two little ones look both real and utterly adorable in their lack of interest in the proceedings. Works for me :).

You all look very content, and beaming. Nicely done.

I love the picture. I have a very fast camera but it is not capable of catching to "littles" smiling at different times. I do believe they enjoyed Thanksgiving.

I think the photo turned out great. It is nearly impossible to get everyone looking at the camera at the same time.

I've found that it's the "imperfect" photos that become the most precious, because they show us a moment that we weren't expecting. Like candids, they feel more real, and also make us laugh much more than the posed photos. This is a BEAUTIFUL pic!

I think it's sweet! I'm sure that it really epitomizes everyone's personality. The more people you add the harder it gets.

A wonderful family photo! I've learned that you don't always get what you want. I never get everyone looking at the camera at once.

A picture of the WHOLE family - that's a treasure!
