This shot was taken after a parade when my kids were hot, thirsty, and really not very happy to be there. But the promise of an ice cream and air conditioning was enough to spur them into action, getting them back to the car and on our way. Here is my daughter in her eagerness to get home.
I don’t know why, but every time I pull out my camera, I get intensely different reactions from each of my kids. My daughter is quite the little poser, and LOVES it…although she only loves it for about 10 minutes, then she’s done. So, I have to get her wrapped up within that ten-minute time frame, or I’m out of luck.
My middle son loathes it, which I find rather ridiculous since he’s such a beautiful boy. With him I must resort to the occasional fart joke for a genuine smile, or just settle for a brooding look. My oldest son couldn’t really care less. He’ll do what I want for a while, but he neither enjoys the process nor despises it.
So I took my happy daughter, reluctant middle son, and my permissive oldest son to the park today for a mini session. Here are a few of the images from the excursion.
So in the end, we got a few good shots, several very grumpy pictures, and (with the wonderful Arizona wind) lots of wild hair shots. 🙂
