The Schwartz's vs the Out takes

So multiple people have commented that Sarah smiles all the time and never takes a bad picture.  I must assure you that's simply not true.  But why would I post a picture that's not good?  So here are some behind the scene facts about our pictures.  I never take just one.  I take at least 5 pictures of a particular whatever that I want to capture so that hopefully one of them will turn out.  I sometime turn it on the continuous shooting mode but I try not to do that often because I very quickly wind up with 50+ pictures in a few seconds and then it's a BEAST to try to find the 1 good one (remember the sneak peak of flower butt).  When I do her birthday shots, there are between 30-40 of those (not kidding).

However, I've been working on this post for a couple of days now and every time I sit down to find some examples of "bad" pictures I just can't find any.  So either I've been doing a better job about deleting them when they happen OR Sarah really doesn't take a bad picture.  (Ha ha!)

Anyway, here's a couple of out takes.


  1. Maybe they aren't all smiling, but there really are some awesome faces in that set!

  2. The third one down is definitely my favorite. What a look!
