Henry and his sister want to give their mom pictures of all the kids for Christmas, so his sister asked me to take the pictures because she knows I’m a trillion times better than Henry. While I’m good at bossing around Chooch and Blake for photos, I don’t really know Kelly’s kids all that well so I’m kind of shy and a lot awkward around them, which sucks because I had some good ideas I wanted to try out. Because of this, Henry attempted to help me out by yelling directions to them, and all that resulted in was really unnatural postionings, like he was aiming for the look of a studio family portrait shot in the 70s.
I fired him after this one. I’m not sure what he was trying to achieve by pulling his niece Stephanie out to the side like that, except inducing doubts of self-worth.
I’m amazed that Chooch stood still for all the group photos. And Blake too, for that matter.
This is the only one I really like; it makes me want them to start a band. I’d like to try it again some day, when the sun isn’t blinding everyone and my nerves don’t have me in a full nelson.
