self-timer snapshots

(As much as I love to travel I really missed being home. This is where I am the most me.)

Self-timer photos definitely have to be spontaneous because they turn out best if you try to capture a moment rather than forcing the picture. Yesterday I took a few different snapshots. Some outside during our tea party and these when we were inside hanging out. Some of my favorite photos are taken using the timer because they aren't perfectly posed but more of a peek into the day-to-day.
I used my self-timer camera remote for these photos.
Well, it took a few times, Lola was distracted by the camera beeping and wanted to eat the camera & Quincey wanted to hide in my skirt. But no one ever said these photos are supposed to be perfect.


Some of you already linked up your photos in previous posts. Feel free to link them up again so we can have them all in one place. I've loved seeing all your self-timer shots!

Simply post your photo on your blog or facebook linking to my Dear Lizzy blog then post your photo below.

I didn't have any done recently, but I have taken family self timer shots every single month since the beginning of this year, some months more photos than just one! I put them all in one place and wanted to share!
thanks!

So how do you possibly get into a position like that on the floor with a self-timer, which goes off after like 10 seconds????

I used my camera remote for those photos. If you look close you can see it. ;)
