How long does it take to get the money shot?

Answer: One hour and 82 pictures!

Yes, it took one hour and 82 pictures to get ONE good picture of Wacky Zacky and Zany Janie for our Christmas card where they were not biting, sniffing toes, pulling hair, hitting, sneering, screaming, crying, smacking each other in the head, pulling out their hair, covering eyes, licking, or laying on top of each other. The blood, sweat, and tears to get the end result was worth it, however I think I got several new grey hairs and the kids may have learned some new choice words! Check back on Christmas Day to see the one good picture.

Zany thought of the day: Have you ever thought of the process you go through to get that one good picture? When I think back on some of the things I have endured to get a good picture it seems insane!

GRRR. My Mom had the audacity to ask when I am sending out the cards. Of what? The kids see the camera or Santa and they scream, hide, wave, stick their finger in their nose, ear, each others ear,etc.

I hear you.

That's so funny, I was going to blog the same thing about Lil & Trev. Turns out it's harder than you think to add in a dog. We finally got one of all of us though. I think Daddy was the crankiest of all of us.

But Mom, that's the fun of the shot! Those are absolutely fabulous pictures of the kiddos! I especially enjoyed the one of her sniffing her toes...I think I have one of those in my collection (?). Can't wait to see the final choice!

Oh my...I am laughing so hard. But at the same time, I feel your pain! The trouble we go through just to get that 1 picture!
