Family Photos... sort of

Today was nice and not overly sunny, so we decided to head up to campus and take some self-portraits. It didn't go very well. I wasn't expecting anything professional looking, but it ended up being so frustrating. It turns out that taking pictures with a tripod, a self-timer, and a toddler is basically impossible. Especially if that toddler trips and gets a fat lip after the 2nd picture. My 2 favorite pictures didn't turn out because of Jackson eyes being closed and the picture being out of focus, which are both impossible to control without being behind the camera. And none of them are properly exposed, which is my fault, although it's still hard to control when you aren't behind the camera. Oh well, live and learn. Anyway, here's the ones that turned out okay.

They turned out pretty good, given the circumstances. How do you get a toddler to even look in the right direction without any behind the camera? I am impressed.

Awesome job! I think you got as many good ones with the tripod as the professional who did ours! :)
