This is my youngest daughter Gabi and my son Gus, they are basically the most photogenic people in my home. I'm not a huge fan of going to a place of business and taking family portraits. What I do prefer is taking my own pictures and developing them on my own, almost always transforming them to black and white photos. We haven't taken a family portrait in many many years. I have prepared my family (yes, I heard a lot of moans and groans and whining) to take pictures this weekend. Whether they want to stand beside each other or not for 15 minutes is not my problem, no excuses, no absentees.... nothing...Its going to happen, or I'm going to be one cranky lady!
I need some ideas! Other then the beach (although beach pics are always the prettiest, I live 1 1/2 hours away) and I'm going to be lucky to get everyone in one picture, I am not going to press my luck with a long car drive. Do you have any pretty spots that you can suggest that would serve as a pretty background?
Once again, thanks for all of your help!
