I started this Project 12 in January, so hopefully we would have 12 good family pictures at the end of 2011. It was not easy. There are several months that I had to do 2 pictures, simply because we didn’t have time/ I forgot. I am very glad we did this. It became apparent early on, that I was going to have to get creative or else they would look the same. Some of these, I have no make-up on, some are the best we could do simply because we have two small children who are very uncooperative in front of the camera sometimes. (Some would call this perspective.. me learning what it’s like in front of the camera.)
April is probably my least favorite month.. with a toss up between August, May, or November being my favorite.
September is probably hands down the best picture of the girls, but too bad my eye went wonky in it.
I don’t think I will do another one of these for 2012.. although they are nice to have, they are a lot of work, and I feel like I exhausted the grandparents taking these pictures. Or ya know, Tracie, who took a good bit of them too!
P.S. Dear Grandparents.. If you want one of these pictures, please just tell me and I will order it. Don’t steal them off the blog and print them. It will make me sad so see a poor quality picture of my family framed in your house.
While I am not showing you all 99.. I am showing you a few of the gems we have. This is why you hire a professional people! Which is what I really need to do. But I am stubborn.
|This is just a Hot Mess.|
|John is giving the air gun to someone…|
|Could have been cute if it weren’t for those stupid glasses.|
|Claire has found a present for you.|
|C is frightened by how horrific this is turning out.|
|Addy is clearly over this. And John is about to blow a gasket|
|Who are these kids?!!?|
|Clearly I am arguing with Addy about her pink camera. John looks more like a Blues Brother than Clark Kent|
|Oh What’s that, Rachel? You smelled a fart?|
|John says it looks like I have scoop like Lois Lane.. I think I am smelling more farts.|
