The Sordid Tale

Picture this:
An Ima who is desperate for a family photo.
After several badly (BADLY) botched professional attempts,
I had had enough.
We were going to get a family picture,
by G-d,
and we were going to get it this weekend.

At about 5:00 PM,
when the light was golden
but boys were cranky,
I decided it was now or never.

What do you do when you have 30 pictures of your family
Where one boy is looking
but the other looks miserable

or the other boy looks pleasant
and one looks very, very worried?

You cut the head off the pleasant boy
and sub it for the miserable one.

Then you print it really big on canvas, hang it in your house, and hope no one notices.
(Great job, Kim - you figured it out! FB me your preference of Jeni's flavor and I'll send it right to your house.)

Go here to see the whole set of (head-substituted) family photos.

Wow - I feel so much better now! We just took family pictures with a photographer whose work I like very much, and in EVERY ONE OF THEM, one of the kids wasn't looking/looking happy/cooperating. Your picture came out looking great.
