Kids Don't Always Want Their Picture Taken

The first pic, she's smiling perfectly. After a while she's DONE with pictures (mmm look at that yummy light)... He's usually patient with me when I take his picture. His smile is often overdone these days but I can get his authentic grin by saying something funny (I've always got something funny to say). The first is on a tree stump that he managed to get on without falling into the brink. He was so excited for me to take his picture. The second is showing that he's DONE too...

Q: Did you really think ALL my pictures turn out fabulous? Tee hee. Sometimes you have to get through a lot of duds to find the gems (that's why I take so many pictures).

Is that Piper and Jack? They look so much older than the last time I saw them. And their hair is so much longer too!

These are your munchkins? They are adorable. AND... I like the pictures where they are DONE. Shows cute personalities. Yeah - you really are THAT good.

Yep, those are my kidlets. Jack's hair is too long, but I do like the surfer style he sports. Haven't figure out how to trim it myself without taking off too much. Piper's hair looks longer when it's in ponies.

Queen... you're too much :o) I look forward to meeting you soon!!!

It's a Murphey's law. Getting kids to smile for photos is not an easy task and the challege grows exponentially with each kid that is added to the shot.

P.S. Thanks again for the lens. I LOVE it! When will I see you again?

Piper's got the perfect pout, you better be prepared.....

I like Jack's surfer dude look too.

I love your work and play.

Those are the cutest kids ever! When they want their pictures taken and when they don't!

Beautiful. As always. And the little bit of attitude makes it even better.

When you move I am assuming that you are leaving P for me to raise. I heart her.
