Here are outtakes from our attempt at a family picture on Christmas Eve night.

Because I love you.  And I have no shame.


Test shot while I adjust the lighting.

Another test shot.  Thanks for smiling, Isaiah!

Yet another test shot.  Biniam takes this opportunity to attempt tying his tie.

First timer-shot.  I couldn't figure out how to get my camera on the 10-second setting.  So I had TWO seconds to push the shutter button and make it into the shot.  Ever seen a pregnant woman JUMP into a photo?  

This ones a little better.  Except I don't like how I'm so far in front.  Plus why does Brian's front look so, lumpy?

I attempted to lean further back on this one, but my feet are still in the same place.  So now it's just Pregnant Woman Falling Over.  Noah seems less than thrilled.

Finally!  Who cares what everyone's faces look like.  I made it to the back of the photo, and we figured out if Brian put his arm down the "lumps" on his front went away.  Victory!
