First look at our 2014 Stairwell Carollers Group Photo

The sexy version of our 2014 group shot

It starts with making sure everyone can show up, in black, at a very specific time (this one just before rehearsal)

We were blessed with a cloudy day, but no rain! Yay! FYI When you want to take a great portrait and have no camera equipment except for the CAMERA, remote and a tripod -- choose a cloudy day -- always. Why? you ask (or don't -- I'm still going to tell you)

Soft, soft shadows.

So, never take a picture of anyone over 30 in harsh sunlight -- unless you are going for that craggy look -- in a woman. Nice.

But, I digress...

All but one important Stairweller made it to the photoshoot. We missed you Kelly!

Kelly, still singing

I set up the tripod and this happened

My best side

then this

Josee is so popular

and this...

Us being silly

There was no controlling them. Finally got the shot
