Family Portrait

Family portrait 2016.For the past two years we’ve started taking now yearly family portrait. Even though we do something similar every New Year it’s becoming a nice tradition to do one of these a year somewhere in between. Taking advantage of this past long weekend we decided to continue this trend and enlisted my dad to help with the shoot.

Family portrait.This year it only took us 182 ) shots to end up with a couple of decent versions. Arosha was much better this year and was able to just sit there and smile into the camera. Anюta though is nowhere near ready yet. All those tries that we had to take were caused by her. Eventually we managed to bribe her into a tiny bit (not more) of cooperation with a candy.

Family portrait 2015.The last one is from last year which we never posted on the blog it seems. Either that or I can’t find it. Now we can’t make up our minds which one of the two new ones to print out and frame.

Family Photograph

Family photograph. Our favorite shot.Today we took up a monumental task of getting a nice family photographs of ourselves to print out for Alёna’s mom and for ourselves as a bonus. We all got dressed, I setup the lights and demonstrated to Alёna’s mom how to operate the camera.

Second favorite.The hardest part by far is to get the kids to do the right thing. When one is looking into the camera another one is yawning. When another one is looking into the camera the other one is talking or making faces. Alёna and I did our best not to screw up the photo because it was hard enough, but we still do blink.

Third. I'm seriously considering trimming my beard.All in all we took over 250 raw photos. No exaggeration. Multiple sets, multiple tries, changes of positions, light setup adjustments, candy bribes. But after several hours we did manage to produce a couple of worthy print candidates. Three best ones are above.
