Girls Gone Wild!

Well, not exactly, but let's just say today's photo shoot did not go well. I needed a picture of Jess and Ali to put in the "Nana" frame we'd bought for my mom's Mothers' Day gift. At one point, Ali stormed inside in tears. Even Mother Nature was uncooperative. The overcast weather was good for picture taking but we could've done without the gusts of wind that kept kicking up!

Here's Dixie showing how it should be done:


Just look at Mom and smile. Very easy, right Dix? ;-)

Whew! Much aggravation later, here's the final shot, as chosen by DH and me:

Jessica doesn't like that shot because Ali was standing on her toes so she looks taller. Ali, however, found it quite amusing:


In a rare show of solidarity, the girls agreed that this one was their favorite:

Great! Alison finally agrees with her sister just when DH and I were counting on her not to! ;-)

I'm printing off 4X6 prints of the additional shots and making a mini accordian style photo album. I'll post that as soon as I get it finished.

Beautiful!!!!!

It's so funny, I was taking pictures of my kids on Saturday !! I would imagine that you took less than 180 pictures (which is how many it took to get a good one of each, and a decent one of them together)!
