Why is it that your own children are the hardest to photograph?!!
The bigger question is: why do I make the mistake of photographing my own kids on New Year’s Day after bathtime in their jammies… and think it will only take 5 minutes? Every. Single. Year. Who am I kidding???
Well, not all traditions are easy — but I have to say, I am so glad I made this our family tradition!
So that 5 minutes quickly turned into 30, and my poor husband had to perform A PUPPET SHOW just so I could get this one shot of the three of them looking like they are the Asian version of the Brady Bunch kids!
Thanks for your help, Schmookie Pookie Ookie Bear! (j/k. I don’t call him that! He is probably gagging as he is reading this!)
Below are a few more shots that put a smile to my face.
Ian asked me to take a photo of his “pirate face”. I didn’t know he had this so-called face, and I didn’t ask any questions I didn’t want to hear the answers to.
So I just took the shot like a good Mama-razzi!
Um. Again, I didn’t ask.
My little 2-year old, Ava, has never done this before: pose for the camera! What the??? Who is this child?!!
She loves to read about Princesses and Fairies…and Umizoomi (in case you were curious).
And here’s one I played around with for fun…
It is more whimsical than my usual lifestyle images because it mixes illustration with photography. What do you think?
