Yesterday we trouped off to what I told the kids was a Super Top Secret Photo Shoot for the 4th day of Valentines. The kids, all dressed in black shirts, were on their best behavior. No one had chocolate smeared across their face. Every one's hair was combed. Even our sweet dog looked presentable.
Our photographer introduced me to a new way of taking pictures. She snapped portraits of each child (and the dog and me) separately on a black background. Then she will photo shop them into one portrait. Everyone will be smiling. Everyone will be looking in the same direction.
Awesome. I do not think we have ever had a portrait where everyone is doing what they are supposed to be doing.
I am so looking forward to getting the disc of pictures so I can get things printed at Costco. I've already reserved the photographer for a family pic this fall. I'll post her website next week as soon as she gets it up.
