needed: wide angle lens and a clown

Oh, the poor photographer who will someday shoot our family photos.  As you can see, none of these shots have eleven smiling faces in them.  Hence, the clown in the title.  However, these are the first photos of all eleven of us together, so I would call that an accomplishment - almost four months later.  Oh, and that last photo...that's the real us.  Sorry to disappoint you.  This was one of those moments when my mind composed  cool shots, but no one else cared, so we resorted to sitting - the best way to keep everyone still.  Have fun picking out all the grumpy faces, stupid faces, and just plain ridiculous faces.  (You'll find them all, I promise.)

    P.S. There is ALWAYS someone in our photos who is pulling a funny face, or looking strange or frowning - I guess that that's just the way it is with large families, but I love our family for it, and it makes me laugh, our photo books are so much more interesting with a clown in the background! In fact flipping through the pages it is almost like a game...who can spot the odd one out first?

  18. This looks just like our family. I understand your dilemma. With 27 of us, well... it's just a tad hectic.

    Great shots!
