Do you have a little mister, who refuses to have photos taken of him. I do! This guy acts like the world itself will end if a "nice" picture is taken. He stink face's it up (he's mastered the stink face pout) and pictures become close to impossible.
He acts confused and says he has no idea what I'm talking about (Above all I asked him to do was look at the camera. Confusing right?)
Because of this we end up with a lot of outtakes. Ones where he is mid sentence or staring off to the side....I think he saw a butterfly or something :)
I mean I get it...he's 8 and who wants to just smile at a camera when you can hit your rock star pose in absolute glory?
But then there is that sweet moment where he just looks at the camera and I quickly snap a shot. He forgets to be goofy and just stares. Oh those gorgeous eyes (don't tell him I said they were gorgeous. He hates that). I love every single one of those freckles too. He is a handsome guy inside and out.
Thank you bubba for the challenge you bring to picture taking. I am always determined to get pictures of you, whether they are silly, rock star inspired, or simply staring into the camera.....I love them all.
Today grab your camera ladies, find a simple background, and snap a few shots of your munchkins. It's in those outtakes that true memories are made...... memories that us Moms will look back on years from now and smile at the sweet children we raised.
Cherish the Moments.
