Outtakes

Anyone have any secrets on how to get a good picture with little kids?
I sure don't know!
It was fun trying though...

The pictures are still really cute! I love the first one of the kids and Daddy. I swear, one of mine is always working so hard on getting someone else to do the right thing. One day, maybe, they will smile and look. Maybe. :)

Kim said...

Haha, so cute & silly! I do love them all though!!! Your kids are very creative! :)

I think the secret is photoshop photomerge! Ha ha...I've never figured out how to use it though. But you got some great shots. I love the second one and the last one. Your family is so beautiful. You are truly blessed!

i love how you and matt are in basically the same pose with the same smile for every pic, but the kids are doing something COMPLETELY different in each one! hilarious!

I heard for babies/ maybe toddlers that you put tape in there hands and put there hands together then they dont figet there hands.. as soon as you get the tape on the grab there attention and there you have a perfect pose!

Oh, come ON - these are the BEST kind of pictures - the personalities of the kids really come out! :) Your family is so cute, all your pictures are keepers!

Katrina said...

So cute!! Love all the pictures!

Tina Fisher said...

They all look really really good! I think I could take a lesson or two from your pictures!

Katherine said...

I LOVE the last picture! It's probably as close to perfect as you're going to get:P

Those are all great pictures! I love how Dad is trying to keep Alexa's dress down while she wiggles all over his lap. All too cute!!!

It is sooo hard to get a good pic with the kids. Just takes a whole bunch of pictures. One is bound to turn out cute.

He & Me + 3 said...

They are adorable. I love it. So sweet. Their smiles really light up a room. Gorgeous family.

Those are awesome Laura....you have the cutest family. And I must say, you look amazing girl!

I do! I do! You have to have a "jumper" behind the camera person. This worked for my brother's family when his two little boys just weren't into the whole family picture thing. I started ducking and jumping up and making faces at them from behind the camera man. They ended up with some genuinely delighted faces.

What great pics:) You should see us trying to get a good pic with 7 kids lol. Thanks for sharing. They are all perfect.

Helga said...

I think the pictures turned out great!!! They will be great for scrapbooking :o)

Carrie said...

Either tell them that Elmo or Cinderella are inside your camera lens and have them try to sit real still so they can see him/her. Or my fav trick is to have the self inflatable whoopie cushion ready and available. Who doesn't look, smile and even giggle when they hear an unexpected toot!!! Good luck but I think you got some pretty good ones with your strategy :)

Stephanie said...

ha I wish.... All mine come out that way.. on the plus side both you and your husband look great in the pictures you did get.

Tyler said...

Great pics!! Love them.. even if the kiddos are being silly. How fun! Love B's little smile in the last one..precious

Cop Mama said...

Adorable! Look at your little diva!

Posed pics...yeah, we gave up on those. Now I just take candids!

Oh do these pictures bring back memories for me! Went through the same thing so many times. Now that my kids are older, they're still acting up sometimes. I just put the picture where I look the best in a frame and when they're old enough to complain I'll tell them what a handful they were trying to get them to look like they enjoyed taking pictures with me. The best revenge.

I do love these pictures! They look so happy!

Stacey said...

Bribery??? I don't think it's possible.

I think all your pictures are really cute!

Arizona Mamma said...

I love the pictures! Seriously, their expressions are what make them great. And you look gorgeous.

Sonya said...

Kids are so hard to take pictures of! You just have to be patient and take lots nad lots and lots of shots. But these are all adorable. I love silly looks and cheesy smiles!

dan and rachel said...

my tip - take LOTS of pictures. for every 1 good picture, I've probably taken 30 pictures.

happy friday!

Mama (Heidi) said...

I love how you and Matt don't seem to skip a beat looking at the camera amidst the moving children around you.
The pics are great and I'm with AZ Mamma you look amazing, dah-ling
