Weekly Photo Challenge: From Above

We try to take a family Christmas photo as often as we can. Considering the fact that my husband and I live in Missouri, the oldest son lives in Florida, and the youngest son and his family live in Oklahoma, it is sometimes difficult to get everyone together for a photo session.   Anyway, a few years ago, we were trying to come up with something different to do for our family photo.  Our oldest son suggested this:

My dad stood on a small, two-step ladder and took several pictures FROM ABOVE.  We loved it when we saw the photos!  We are all smiling except for our granddaughter, Kylee, who we had to wake up from her nap because the oldest son had to leave to catch his flight home.  Fortunately she didn’t cry like she normally does when she doesn’t get her “nap out.”

We even took the traditional “silly” picture!

Notice Kylee’s expression didn’t change.  Oh, well.

Photos FROM ABOVE really do change the perspective of the subject matter.
