Yesterday we attempted family pictures, and it went amazingly well. When Gary turned two I took him to my studio at Sears to get pictures taken... he was so terrified of the flash that he ran away. We had to box him in the room, but still he would not put one foot on the backdrop. Todd brought him into work a couple of times so he could get used to mommy and the big flash (since that seamed to be what scared him). When I took the kids in for Easter pictures my district manager was there & did a fabulous job getting my kids to love getting their pictures taken in the studio. I didn't know what to expect this time around... and I was pleasantly surprised when both kids were extremely cooperative. Even Gary was laughing & having fun, doing all that was asked of him! He was good until the photographer had him lie on his tummy for a pose. He then laid his head down and wouldn't budge... he was tired and done! Luckily so were the pictures! We went ahead and got the firs picture shown here (sorry they're all in such poor quality, I stole them off the sears website since I didn't want to buy a whole CD this time). It was a very good experience!!
