Family Photo - Help Us Choose


So which Thanksgiving Day (after) picture would you print out for everyone?

We gathered up for the photo just before sitting down for our family dinner yesterday evening. Salty Dog was not too keen on posing with us but was still able to sneak in :) You may notice that GD Livi wasn't much more keen on posing than Salty Dog :)
Hang in there Livi girl - we're a crazy bunch!! :)

It was beginning to get dark so we'll have to do a little photo editing to brighten things up and remove some red eyes.
Ahhh,,, life is good!
peace

What a great big family...WOW!! It takes a lot of work to get everyone in that crowd to look forward and smile! You did a great job!! I would say pic number two....with the exception of Livi(I think she is the one in the front row crying...poor little thing) Everyone else seems to be looking forward and smiling!!

Good luck....let us know what you pick!

I would have to agree.. I think picture number two.. maybe you can photoshop her in with her smiling..
That is a GREAT picture..
Sorry to hear that Livi was a little upset..
Have a Great Weekend..

my vote - #1

Special K said...

I vote #2. Except for Livi crying everyone else looks the best and your dog is more a part of the pic.

PS. It's hard just to get all 5 of my sister's kids to look at the camera at the same time. Great job getting all of your family in one pic. And how awesome was it to finally hold AA in it this year! :)

I vote for #2 also, but you need to do something about red eye.

Definately #1. To of your female family members in black have their whole face shone and it #2 it's partially cut off. In #1 you can't see your little family members tonsils! LOL. Therefore, My vote is for #1!

I vote for pic 2, it seems to be lighter. Love all of the people in your family. You are going to have an amazing Christmas!

Sending love from Michigan!

iehter one is great but i am partial to #1. Have fun choosing!

Melissa said...

#1, however I feel #2 is better, w/the exception of Alivia.....they are dark too....

Hope you had a blast!
Mel is getting colder Maine, but the sun is out!

I think Livi's expression is saying "Take the picture already! I'm hungry!" It adds to the character of a family photo with so many people. We vote for #2. Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!

#1-No gaping child's mouth, more face showing on the lady behind the woman in green, more face showing on the lady in black-far left.

Carol and Taylor said...

I vote for #2. We have a motto in our family...Its not a party til somebody cries! Plus, doggie is in better position and the star of the whole thing (IMHO), Miss Alizabeth An, looks happier to me in #2.

My 2 cents.

Kind regards from Miami,

Beautiful family. I vote for the second picture. Your family looks great and the little one in the red shirt...there has to be a story there!

Catherine said...

Great pics! #2 would be my choice as well. Poor little Livi...you'll all laugh about this later.

amy said...

whats the dog doing in the first picture???? It looks like theres a leg up in the air.

I love the sky

i have to say number 1

Dita said...

I have to say #2 too! Poor Livi...but it could be in her wedding montage one day and everyone will get a kick out of it (except her, possibly!)

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Vivian M said...

I think number two, the dog is distracting in the first pic! Have fun picking which shot you like best!

I love the background. I think #1 is really nice.
