Family Photos .......... You Be the Judge!?!

So while we were on vacation to Utah in October and November we had our family picures taken. I was really excited to do it and had this vision of what they would look like in my head.......I am obviously not a true artist with the ability to turn my "visions" into reality because they looked nothing like I had imagined!

My first mistake: I thought because we had scheduled an appointment that we would actually be taking pictures at that time, our photographer would be prepared, and stay for the time she had scheduled once there. My bad! (I will say this though she tried very very hard to get my kids to smile and for that I thank her)
My second mistake: White does not look good on just anybody, especially when you yourself are the color swatch they used to make the fabric you are wearing

My third mistake: I assumed the "chin down method" removed all noticeable double chins

My fourth mistake: I believed I looked like Jennifer Aniston when in reality I looked like .... well this...

My fifth mistake: Because my children would laugh and play all day if they were outside than obviously outside would be the best place to get happy pictures. This became a mistake when I confused picture taking with playing

Honestly this list could go on for days but I will let our pictures do the talking. I need everyone to vote for which picture they like best so I can figure out which one to frame and put in our house. Here ya go...


PS Kelsie I cannot find that disc you put the pictures that you fixed on. If you by any chance happened to save them let me know, if not I will keep looking.

I like the family pictures. I think they turned out nice despite the fact that you weren't pleased with them. To answer your questions I will be living in the same place with completely new people.... I am a bit nervous to see how these ones work out. I am hoping for the best. I will blog about the experience. I hope all is well with you guys!

Is it too late to vote?? I love the pict of Zoe with the rocks, the last family pict of you all and the pict of Isa with her Papa, right at the beginning. And for the record, I think you look better than that Jennifer gal, who ever she is!!! ;)
