I attempted my first shoot with a tripod and my own family. It was really cold, started snowing and the kids weren't happy (as shown by our littlest one screaming!) I was able to snap 2 family pictures, and both of them had our second one's face covered by Grandpa's cowboy hats we borrowed. It was fun to get a family picture done anyway. It had been way too long. Better luck next time is what they say, right?
