Lights, camera, action

They're here, and they're not horrible (unfortunate double chin on my part notwithstanding!). As with anything we undertake, we learned a lot about what to do and not to do for next time, but for our first endeavor, I thought we did better than expected.

Lessons learned: We need more distractions to help the little ones focus, distractions of our own making, not the dogs/birds/cars/squirrels at the photo shoot. We need much more preparation beforehand to help the kids understand what their roles are. We are most definitely not ready for anything more formal than these, at least for a few years; casual works for us! We should not lean on park benches until the very end of our shoot. And we should all wear brown next time!
