Someday, maybe

I’ve been a mom of three for almost two years and I have yet to figure out how to successfully take a good pic of my three kids together.  And yet, I keep trying…call me hopelessly optimistic, stubborn, or just plain slow to learn, but I keep holding out hope that one day I’ll snap that illustrious shot of my circus crew.

Here we have two sideward glances with a smirk and one squinter in the sun.

Miss America waves to her adoring fans off camera

Mom, puh-leeze, can we just get back to picking strawberries?

This might be my fav… a look of disgust, a pucker and a closed eye shot.

  1. I have the same problem......now some of my favorite pictures are ones where no everyone is looking b/c I can see more of their personalities. I think your kids are so cute!

  5. We have the same issues in our house - and I only have two. But getting them both to look at the camera and smile is impossible. :)

  7. It's really hard to take great shoots when you subject are kids. I camera that can take multiple shoots in a second would I guess solve this problem. LOL Happy WW!

  11. I can't get a good shot of just two kids! For our Christmas card last year, we resorted to putting three different pictures on it: one of each child, then one of my husband and I together. I am hoping that by Christmas this year we can get a decent picture of all four of us (or at least of the girls together)!!

  13. I have been a mom of 3 for more than 4 years and I still cant get all three to look great in one picture. I think its impossible.

  16. Yeah, Mom just let them pick the strawberries. Your kids are adorable! I always have a hard time getting a good photo of all my kids together too.

  17. I have problems with just one. So I can't imagine! They are still cute shots though.

  18. Kids are never still at the same time! I've got the same problem. Looks like they are having a great time. I wish we planted strawberries, my dd and hubby share some every night!

  19. Taking a decent picture of three smiling children is seriously hard work!!!

    I think you do a great job, though!

  20. I guess I'm lucky My kids are such hams... I honestly use the camera to calm fits as they start smiling the minute it comes out.

  21. I think the trick is to take them all the time so the odds are greater :) Though, I do like some of the not so perfect pictures.
