Too cute! I am starting to feel your pain. Chloe will still smile on cue, but Colby...well I blame it on being 2. He used to smile for pictures better than any kid. Now it is like pulling teeth. Good luck on getting a shot for cards!
I totally understand. We tried to do family pics yesterday.
These are so fun! They have a vintage feel to them for some reason. Maybe the wood or slightly faded color, or the fact you can't see their clothes. Whatever it is I like it! :)
I don't understand how those people do it. I have a friend who gets only THE MOST PERFECT photos of her boys and girl, I am so envious because I can never get my boy to smile naturally and he always hears the camera before I can sneak up on him to take a "natural" shot. Haha. Your two look adorable, anyway. Don't worry about getting lots of strange photos, perhaps kids grow out of this phase? I hope? :P
I have friends who have children like that too. All they have to do is see a camera and they start to vogue and grin. All my kids have to do is see a camera and they run.Maybe I should introduce the 'Candy for a smile' incentive program.
"these people" That really made me laugh!
HAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Oh my word. These are HILARIOUS. My day has just been made. Though I must apologize, because me and Jamie were the ones who taught them the art of silly picture faces... but I'm sure if you send any one of these out as a christmas card it would be more of a hit than a smiley one. ha
Chels, you made me smile! I miss you! What happened to your pleonast blog? See you soon and I'm bringing these people with me. :-)
ahahhaha! Well, they do look cute anyway!! =) Thank you for the hug! ;)Things are getting better now, I know that it will all be ok...The good part is that I'm sure she is happy now! :)kisses from Brazil to you!
Getting both of my kids to look at the camera and smile is one of my goals in life. Is it really that hard? I think yours turned out great.
The Barbie head cracks me up!
Ok, the barbie head.there was serious unhappiness when I tried to take Barbie, so I figured if these are award winning photos, I'd somehow figure out how to touch her head out of them, a pretty tall order considering my abysmal photoshop skillz.And you know the rest of that story.
