Introducing the Smith Clan


Let me introduce you to the Smith side of our family. We decided to take a family portrait for Matt's parents. We also decided to do it ourselves...here is what we got with 8 adults, 7 kids, our own camera, a tripod, a self-timer and Matt running back and forth about 50 times.

We laughed hard and had lots of fun doing this today! Here are some comical out-takes from our self performed photo shoot...

The Patriarch's of the family with all seven grandkids.

The Dickman Family. This is Matt's oldest sister Mindy, her husband Ryan and their three kids...Madison, Matthew and Sydney.

The Jones Family. This is Matt's older sister Kristie, her husband Philip and their kids...Colby and Keelie.

Us...in our first attempt at a Family Portrait...this would have been great except I'm not sure what I was going on about...

This is Matt, the Love of my Life and the Father of my Children...True to Form.

Wow. Way to go. Those are fantastic and I lOVE the background on the tracks, the trees and the fall colors. Its looks warm.

I have thought about doing that but I need one extra person standing behind the camera to grab the kids attention.

Good job.
