The first set of orders was that we had to all wear black long-sleeved shirts with dark-wash jeans. "No exceptions." The dark jeans were easy, but I do not own any long-sleeve plain, black shirts. I'm a print-girl. Anyways, I did the best I could with a 3/4-inch sleeve blouse and hoped no one would notice.
We arrived at our scheduled time and were met by the rest of the family: one set of grandparents; sister-in-law, her husband, 7 year-old and 4 year-old nephews; other sister-in-law, her husband, 3 year-old nephew and 2 year-old niece. Do you know how many people that is, including us?! 12.
The photographer posed us in extremely awkward positions, which we had to hold steady for an unreasonable amount of time. She was really good at her job, but she kept making funny motions and sound-effects to get the kids laughing. This was cute the first 15 times, but after 10 minutes of the same stimuli, I felt like I was ready to punch a clown.
I'm just hoping that the photos do not end up on AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com
Here are outfit photos from Thursday.
