Photo Session


So here's the conversation I imagine our teenage photographer must be having tonight...

Photographer's Mom: "Hi Honey. How was work?"
Photographer: "Well, it was going great until this one family showed up. When they walked in I thought, 'This is going to be so easy! They look so nice and those two little boys are so cute!' Boy was I wrong!"
Mom: "Oh no! Did the kids cry?"
Photographer: "No! The little one kept making this horrible face and closing his eyes. When I'd tell him to smile he'd get all upset and tell me he was! The big one couldn't sit still. His hands were always in front of his face...and sometimes up his nose!"
Mom: "Were you able to get any good pictures?"
Photographer: "Well, I got one pretty good one. Lucky shot! I was posing the dad and one of the kids when the other kid just started climbing on his dad like he was a jungle gym or something. The mom just grabbed the climber and threatened everybody to stay still and smile. I think she said they'd better smile or they wouldn't get any of the cub scout popcorn she had stashed in her bag. I guess it worked... Of course the cheapskate had a coupon and since there was only one good picture she almost got out of there for free."
Mom: "Almost?"
Photographer: "Yeah, she was totally embarrassed by her family's terrible behavior, so she bought another sheet, too."

I would have to say thats a pretty cute picture by accident! You are sooo skinny Jen! You all look very cute and you can't even tell the kids were little rascals.

You would NEVER know they weren't acting like that the whole time. We won't even bother going into a studio so I admire your bravery. Obviously it paid off!

Great picture! I think we took close to 100 at home trying to get one for our Christmas card, but Jonathan kept getting up and leaving and Alicia always put her hands in front of her face. Wait until you get it -- if you look close, you'll notice Jonathan has a bribe (smarties) in his hand, and Alicia looks more like she's singing than smiling...

Too funny! I really like the picture- sometimes the best ones are accidents! So when are you writing your book? I love reading your descriptive blog. :)
