Since It’s birthday season, I REALLY wanted to get portraits of the kids. So I made the boys put on shirts, and wash their faces and I put a dress on Ruby (who by the way, REFUSED to participate). I would love to say that I planned an cool trip to the beach or a train station or even a neat park to attempt these shots, but I didn’t have it in me. Yesterday was the last day of school and after chasing around all the kids at a pool party, I was kinda pooped. Needless to say the boys were not eager to have their photos taken, especially since I was going for an actual PORTRAIT! Why do I fool myself into thinking that this can be accomplished?
We are lucky to have neighbors who have a beautiful side yard that is open shade, so I set up shop there. A few nights ago when we were in the spa, one of the boys did something naughty, but no one would fess up as to who it actually was. They were like the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil monkeys, and, at that moment I thought I wanted to capture them in a pose like that, THEN i remembered that my neighbors have actual statues of monkeys like this! Soooo….
I’ll start with Tommy’s:
AND OF COURSE THE OUTTAKES!! This is 99% of what goes on, 99% of the time in my house.
