And while there's a lot of pictures in this post, it's not even half the ones I took (or tried to take).
I thought Easter would be a great time to get a picture of my kids together. Dressed up, nice day . . . I had high hopes for a good shot.
Close, but no. After several attempts along this line, we had a mini egg hunt and I tried a close up, arms around each other.
OK, not so much.
After church, around the side of my parents' house:
I knew he had chocolate all over his face. I just thought he was so cute anyway.
How about me with the kids?
One more try with the two of them in their church clothes:
Now we'll try after the egg hunt . . . they'll be in a good mood then, right?
Anyway. I wasn't ready to give up yet. A few days later we went down to the Pennsylvania Governor's Residence, where my mom is a docent. While we waited, I thought, how about some shots against this cool brick wall?
Not too bad.
Not sure what's up with that pose.
The thing is, they don't want to stand or pose or whatever while I play with camera settings and angles and all that. Sam is good for smiling great in the first few shots but then gets tired of it; by the time Kate is looking and smiling he's done.
