Say CHEESE

With five children it is next to impossible to get them all even looking at the camera never mind smiling, if I try and instruct them too much they end up looking miserable or like they're about to stage a mutiny. That's not what I want my memories to look like, I want to capture THEM not just their faces, so now I just say "SAY CHEESE" and take a few snaps, and see what I end up with (thank heavens for the invention of digital cameras).

It was J's 12th birthday on Tuesday, after dinner I called everyone to the table to sing J happy birthday and have cake. We lit the candles, they all gathered round, and I said "SAY CHEESE"....

This is what I got.


I think that this is quite possibly one of my favourite pictures that I have ever taken of the kids. THIS is how I want to remember them when they're all grown up. I can see their personalities as well as their features, my fun-loving, silly, cheeky, happy, affectionate kids who love each other and who make me so happy & proud that I could actually burst.
