I did a little photo shoot with the kids so I could get some photos for our Valentines that I usually send out. I like to send out a photo card because it makes it seems a little more special. I've been doing it for years and I figure I better keep up the tradition while my kids are still willing to put up with me taking their photos.
However, it is a lot of work to get a few photos where all the kids look good!! Here are a few outtakes from the session:
I have a complex rating system for making a good photo:
-dinosaur tshirt in a non valentine's day color:subtract 5 points
-both girls in the frame: 5 points
-both girls looking at the camera: 5 points
-one girl smiling: 5 points
-both girls smiling: 10 points
-all three kids in the frame and looking at the camera: 15 points
-all three kids in the frame, looking at the camera, and smiling: 100 points!!!
I hope you had a great Valentine's Day!
