Family Picture Success!

It's over. We have achieved the impossible...all six of us made it through a family photo session unscathed and with our sanity intact. (Well, as intact as our sanities were to begin with, that is.) Even the photographer survived, which is no small feat.

These pics are from the Olan Mills website. And no, we didn't order any packages or extra sheets. We'll only receive the first pose, since it would cost an outrageous sum in order to get them all (like, more than we spend on groceries in a month outrageous), and I only wanted the one family pic anyway. But there's some photography studio law that forces them to keep shooting, then try to use their salesmen wiles to get you to buy all 20 amazing pictures for the same low price as a used car. Luckily, I've had lots of practice resisting the forces of salespeople; we've been through the photography studio spiel many times before.

They were all really great shots, though.

They did turn out great, which makes it even harder to resist them, right? Well, at least you have these, watermark and all they are still nice to have. Once when the girls were little and the pictures great, the salesperson tried to guilt me into buying them and acted like I was a bad mom or something for not buying them. I just told him it killed me that they were all going into the trash. They just don't seem to understand the concept "We can't afford them"!
