I’m totally weird and have major anxiety at the thought of handing my camera to strangers and asking them to take photos of us which results in almost no photos of all of us together. We have tons of photos of the boys and I and tons of Harry and the boys but few of us together as a family. Which kind of messes things up when you’re trying to plan out a photo wall in your home. 

This is going to be the year to fix that.

One of my goals for 2014 is to take more photographs as a family.

On the fifth of every month for the entire year, we will be taking family photos.

Getting five people together, smiling and looking at the camera at the same time is a bit of a circus. I’m sure that when we look back on these photos at the end of the year, it will give us a good laugh to remember that Miles was trying his hardest to get away because he hadn’t been outside to play since the last day of fall and Kaleb kept looking off into space imagining the next Lego creation he was going to build and Amelia woke up screaming after a two hour nap because it was cold outside and she needed a diaper change.

How often do you take family photos? Are you usually the one in front of or behind the camera?

    I’m almost always the one behind the camera. It’s pretty rare that there’s a picture of me. Part of it is not really liking the way I look in pictures, and part of it is that I don’t want anybody else playing with my camera.
