Sometimes family pictures are just too much when you are a) a boy and b) surrounded by mud and sticks and rocks.
Our friend, Aimee, took our family pictures this year and she worked her magic. When we finished the shoot, I was certain there wouldn't be one decent shot. 3 boys (I won't name names) WOULD NOT behave/resist the mud/smile/look at the camera. And yet, somehow we ended up with lots of great images; ones I couldn't have imagined from my vantage point. I don't know how she did it, but I am most grateful. We are trading the photo shoot for a quilt. I can't wait to get started.
