Yeah, She was the only one wanting the pics taken. The rest didn't want to be there.

what a shame.. They all got the blue jeans memo, but the boys missed the 'smile' memo.. would have been nice otherwise. To be honest.. these are photos that I don't think I would be happy to recieve and show friends and family. I think maybe do a re-shoot and get some really funny jokes ready.. just think - more experience for you!!

i second that - their expressions overwhelm the positives in the shot, in my opinion.

it'd be good to get a reflector to fill in the dark shadows as well. have the boys lift their chins a bit.

maybe have them make a human pyramid - something to bring them closer together as well - amidst the grimaces, who knows, you might get a couple smiles :mrgreen: (only half kidding)

Thanks! It took all I could do to get them on the ground and in one spot! The males didn't want anything to with it and it shows!

Really hard shadows on the eyes of most. Agreed w/ at least going for a reflector option.
