How many shots does it take to get a picture of five children?

I am always trying to get a shot of my five children…preferably all looking at the camera and no one crying.  So while we were exploring a mountain stream this past weekend, I called for everyone to come take a picture.  Here are the results:

~Y’all come over here and let mommy take your picture~

~Oh, there he is~

And to answer the question in the title…it took 13 shots (2 are not pictured).  But they were all so cute and told the story of trying to get a picture around here that I just had to share!

  2. I don't see photos of your boys that much...and I tell you they are some kind of handsome!
    Your children are simply all beautiful!
    It might have took 13 shots, but all 13 DO tell a story and a mighty good story.
    GREAT POST!!!!

  4. Salinda ~ I can not look at that picture and not giggle! He was saying "cheese" with all of his might!

    Amanda ~ Thank you. My boys tend to shy away from the pictures but on this day they let me snap away!

    Jill ~ Thanks! It's rare that they all look at the camera at the same time (and you might notice that they actually aren't :) I've given up on the perfect picture. I love pictures like these because they have so much personality and reflect our real lives.
