Photographing Four Kids in One Frame

These are four of my own grandchildren. Should be easy, right?

Try to remain patient, I tell myself.

Don’t worry if it is not the day for a photograph.

Even if the weather is perfect and the colorful fall leaves are still on the trees.

Get kids involved in an activity to take their mind off the lens.

Two different days.

The idea is to get a nice photograph to send in a Christmas card, show how they’ve grown.

Hats make shadows on faces and  features obliterated. Oops!

Solids are least distracting.

and yesterday’s attempt

You can always resort to running and jumping as I have in the past, when all else fails.

Let them make a funny face, then a serious one.

Remember it’s a bit easier WITHOUT the dogs

 

Impromptu, candids can come out the best

    The running & jumping pic reminds me of the kids in Peter Pan taking off for Neverland.
