Family Pictures

In today's news of parental laziness, I have a confession to make: I am a terrible taker of pictures in that I never take any pictures of anything on anything other than my phone.

I mean, we have a nice camera that I could use to document our family outings, if I ever wanted to take it with me. But it never does quite seem to make the trip because, honestly, I just don't like the process of taking pictures. I hate lugging the camera around. I hate trying to get everyone in position to take the actual picture. I hate uploading hundreds of pictures onto the computer at a later date. I hate sorting through those hundreds of pictures to find just FIVE pictures where everyone looks like I want them to look.

So I don't do it. And most of the time, I DON'T HAVE TO!!

Because, you see, my brother-in-law likes to do all of those things I hate to do. And not only does he like doing those things, he goes one step further and EDITS all of the pictures when he's finished with the lugging and taking and uploading and sorting. So I don't have to do any of it.

See how happy I look?

(Although, I could have used this impromptu photo shoot a few days earlier, when Brigid's preschool teacher requested a family photo for an art activity they're doing this week. My pickings for that request were...slim. I think the picture I finally found to send with her included Brigid wandering out of the frame and the back of Caitlin's head, as she's buried in my shoulder while I was trying to calm her down from a crying fit. That should make a lovely finished project, whatever it is...)


  1. What a beautiful family!

  2. I loved these pics on FB, and I love them here, too! You guys are gorgeous!
