A Photo Shoot Saga

Getting a decent photo of the two of us isn't always the easiest thing. It take a few shots to get close to what I'd like to call a 'framable'. You know, something you'd feel good about putting up on your wall. 

A typical photo shoot saga in this household goes a little something like this. 

Carli: "Ryan, we're in Phoenix! Its warm, and it's December. The dirt here is RED. There are cacti a-plenty. Let's document!"
Ryan: "One second...I'm juuuuust gonna finish up this wicked streak I've got going on Bike Baron"

Carli: "Ok, let's try again. Now, I'm going to smile although I know I'm going to look slightly pensive in this photo because I feel like you're still finishing up your game."
Ryan: "If you felt that way, you'd be right."

Carli: "Ok, now that your phone is put away, lets try again. O and don't do anything weird in the background, ok? While ordinarily I enjoy your quirkiness, it doesn't always make for the best photos. And, you do have a habit of photo-bombing."
Ryan: "Don't worry, I won't"

Carli:"Aaaaand, ya did. So, lets try again, shall we?"
Ryan: "Sure babe"

Carli: "Well, we still got treated to a mini photo-bomb by way of the infamous peace sign. No worries though. The rest turned out great. A little cropping and we'll have a winner."

And, so comes to a close, another photo shoot saga.

The result? A 'framable'.
