I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. Ours was nice, but did not go according to plan at all. Madeleine got a high fever the whole weekend. I cracked a tooth and Matt got sick and ended up pulling an all nighter at work. So it wasn't really relaxing but we did get a few things done that I had been putting off.
One thing that I was determine to do was take family photos on campus while all the students were still on break. Since everyone is sick, we took photos for about 30 minutes before calling it a day. Thankfully we got a few good ones. Setting up a tripod is not fun.
Madeleine was so miserable. Thankfully I had taken a few of just her a few weeks ago when we were on a family walk before church.
This year I think went way better than last year's photos. I'm trying to save enough money up so that we can have a professional photographer take family photos for us. I like doing them myself, but it takes so much longer and I can't be as picky about the what's in the photo. But some of the candids are hilarious.
Matt and I had a long discussion that about if family photos are worth taking. They are great after the fact but sometimes it's the last thing everyone wants to be doing. Thankfully, I have low expectations for these family photos, so I don't find them that stressful.
Do you think family photos are worth it? How often do you do them?
