Can't Escape Family Pictures

by - 9:38:00 AM

Someone in our apartment had the idea to take roommate pictures. Needless to say, I was not the most compliant. The four girls were getting a little irritated with Tanya and me. It all started when they told us we could wear whatever we wanted, as long as it reflected us. I immediately demanded I was wearing sweatpants. It took some major convincing, but I finally consented to wearing jeans. By the time we got up there, they were convinced we weren't taking it seriously. I don't know why they would think that?
We may or may not have been mocking the idea slightly by pretending to take engagement pictures. I thought this one was creative. Any photographer would use this for their website, I'm sure of it.
Another engagement picture. It appears we tried the "off in the distance" thing, but the fact I'm hugging myself is a little distracting from the effect.
Apparently we missed the memo about the whole piggy-back thing...thus, ruining the picture (and cracking ourselves up while we're at it).
Discussing. Pretty sure they were lecturing us.
Then, they just gave in. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. It's a lot more fun that way.

We ended up feeling guilty, and cooperated for a few.

Tom, Kait's fiance who was taking the pictures, got a little creative. Pretty impressive right?
Attempting to be statue-like. Tanya made the comment that these are possible the most awkward statues ever.
I do love my roommates this semester, even if they do make me take roommate pictures. We are all totally different, but that's what keeps us laughing, on our toes.
