DIY: Family Photos

7:05pm. It's a new year and the perfect time for family photos. The best part about owning a dSLR is the ability to take my own. This year, I saved hundreds of dollars by shooting my own.

I have to admit that my first family shoot was a bit challenging. I hung a sheet on a bare wall in the dining room and set up the tripod. I'm so glad that I invested in a remote, as it made a job a bit easier.

What Did I Forget?

Well.... I forgot to make sure the camera was fully charged, and I forgot to get extra batteries for the flash. I also could have used an extra person to keep Ivy's attention, lol. I still ended up getting quite a few shots, though.

P.S. A lot of my FB friends thought these were professionally done, but I guess I'm my own worst critic. We'll be doing more photos soon.
