If by chance, you are ever tempted to think I am a photographer of any substantial worth...please refrain. For I am not. However, I am a mama who is crazy about her kiddos, and will incessantly keep taking photos to get the right one I want. However, living with these stubborn, and silly...(did I say stubborn?) children, I have come to realize this task can be harder for some than others. I am that some. Proof?
No dear, hold up the paper please.....it's for Daddy!
No sweetie, I know it's windy...but that's not a kite! Now hold the paper nice, please!
Okay....Daddy needs to see his whole name honey! I am getting a little impatient at this point. I am being ignored. She could really not care less about this photo. Or my voice.
Okay, now this is just total blatant ignoring! Look at mommy honey....I'll give you a cookie! Smile for daddy's picture!
Hold up the picture Little Miss! Please!!! No, I don't think it says anything about poopie on it...I know you like to say that, but can you please smile?
Okay, Miss Lady K....you have one more shot....please smile nice for daddy...last time I promise! I will let you play with mommy's phone! Oh, that made her perk up a bit......
At this point...I am sweating like crazy from the heat, my cheeks hurt from fake smiling, and I hardly care if we get a picture or not. Luckily, for me, we finally got one. And, it only cost me a couple of phone calls to India and China. No sweat.
P.S. Keep your outtake pictures...they're fun to play with!
