It doesn't always work out that way. In fact, some of the last several years I have opted to simply use the photo cards with multiple picture spots and just fill them in with good pictures taken over the course of the year.
I tried this year(twice actually)...I really wanted a group shot! It was just not meant to be!
|Andrew and Luke not looking at the camera and Mike's hand looks oddly placed!|
|Andrew looks annoyed and ditto on Mike's hand!|
|Andrew looks really annoyed with eyes closed!|
|Ditto on Andrew, Kate is crying, Ellie isn't looking at the camera!|
......and tried again with 2 couches.
So, after all that, I spent an hour going through our pics trying to get combos so that 8 kids fit into 5 slots! But it is done! I will share the results when they come in the mail:)
|Peter looks ridiculous...and seriously, could Andrew just smile!|
|Ditto Peter and Andrew!|
|I was going to use this one except it didn't fit on the card! UGH!!! So much for the 2 couch idea!|
|This one, when enlarged, was out of focus:(...plus, Sarah is making a ridiculous smile and Ellie is man handling Luke.|
|Slightly out of focus and Kate was obviously done....|
|.....as is evident by her disappearance!|
Next year, I'm just taking 3 mini group shots at the get-go!
