Yesterday, I really wanted a nice family picture for Easter.
I know, right? Might as well want a unicorn to come trotting up with a leprechaun on its back to lead me to a pot of gold.
CHALLENGE: Get all four hungry-and-tired-after-church family members (one with Benadryl on board) to look at the camera at the same time with a halfway pleasant expression to commemorate the happy holiday.
BONUS: Mama, being great with child, finds one that she is comfortable enough with her own image to share it on Facebook.
I cannot believe it but we actually got one! Okay, so some of the facial expressions weren’t all HappyHappyJoyJoy, but OHMYWORD we’ll take it!!
Yes ma’am! We will take this and run with it. Especially considering we only had 10 minutes of failed attempts before we got one.
So. If you’re scrolling through Facebook or Instagram today and seeing all the precious family portraits being shared and feeling a little disappointed, please keep in mind that reality is SO DIFFERENT than what is being shared on social media.
Also? Give it four to five years and your time spent on failed family photos could be reduced significantly. =)
