Family Photos

There has been a conspiracy against family photos in our house. Scott is a bit camera shy, I am mostly behind and not in front of the camera, Bruce makes ridiculous faces when he sees a camera, Phoebe is a little accident-prone, and Oliver just joined the family recently. It was time to call in the professionals...

Thankfully, I know a few. Back in the day, I worked for a digital camera news and reviews web site; a few years later, some of my former coworkers are still snapping photos. I called up Patrick and his photographer friend Mimi to take our picture.
 I threatened Bruce with the looming punishment of no video game time for the day if he pulled his crazy faces in every shot. Thus, he kept his best smile on.
 Phoebe, however, was a little harder to bribe. She doesn't respond to bribes. As you can see, Oliver doesn't either.
 Patrick did a lot of dancing, acting like an elephant, and pulled a few other tricks to keep Phoebe looking at the camera. She would look, but getting her to look AND smile AND keep her hands to herself is tough. 
Eventually we got it though...
