Annual Photo Shoot

Our attempt at the notorious family picture was, well... let's just say that the girls showed up and rocked the scene. Mamoune's countless hours of ogling herself in the mirror as a vain 10 year old paid off BIG! I won't harp on her ever again. The boys? The boys were less impressive.

I'm afraid that the neurons traveling from the brain to the actual body parts are hitting a detour somewhere along the way. "Hey Diz, lean on this wall and look natural." Cue stiff awkwardness that cannot be measured in words. "Okay, I was hoping for 'natural' as in relaxed and cool. Not so much the combined look of a staggering drunk and someone bracing to be hit by a semi that you're giving me."

Still, despite our failure to capture the elusive "everyone look this way and smile" shot, we did salvage the day with a few sucessful pics. Enjoy and Merry Christmas from the Sexton Crew!


See the mischief behind those almond-shaped eyes?
Adorable little devil, isn't he?


He's not a fan of photo day.
(In case the forced expression didn't give it away.)

Might be my favorite shot ever.
If you can enlarge it, you will see the funniest little
smirks on their faces.



Despite what you might be thinking...
they were not lined up for the firing squad.


This may be the last you see of her until she's 30.

Thankful for this moment of unrigidness.



Did I mention putting her under lock and key. Yep.

wonderful!!!! who captured for you? You?

The Sexton Crew said...

Yeah, Lisa, it was me. I have this insane notion that fear of the photographer will force the perfect pose. They do not fear me. They mock me. Twits.

(that and I do enjoy taking them -as a hobby but by no means as a skilled professional like SOME people I know.)

Aime,
Beautiful picture's!

Have a Blessed Christmas!
God Bless,

Just shave her head and buy really thick coke bottle glasses and you may not need to lock her up. As is, though she is turning into one beautiful young lady. (do you want me to store the key?:)
Great pics. love the one of the two girls too
