Family portrait

Our family
A couple of weeks ago, the presidency of our children’s Sunday School asked for family portraits for all the class instructors and all the children.
When we got home, I got out the tripod Mary gave me for Christmas, moved a bookshelf oiut of the way, and opened up our living room blinds to do a family portrait.
Our youngest was being difficult, and I ended up having to combine the two best photos into one in order to get the finished result I wanted.
I am pleased with how it turned out, and it printed pretty well. So well, in fact, that we took it in for processing and got four 8x10s and two 4x6s. It’s now hanging on our living room wall and adorning my work desk.
My only regret is not having Aisling sitting further back. She’s a bit blurry in the photo and her head sees abnormally large compared to the rest of us.
