I can rarely get #2 to take photos with a normal smile or even a regular face. It's always angry face, or ugly face, or I'm such a freakin' brat face, or I'm trying to smile but it's so fake I look like I'm takin' a poo face.

So, tonight I asked him to make faces for my shots and this is what I got.

I think it's awesome (and quite accurate) that Daddy looks confused and Mommy looks amused. The confusion is probably here to stay; not sure how much longer all this crazy is going to be amusing, though.

Please try to ignore the fact that the photos are poor quality (focus, composition, etc), badly lit, and predominately unedited. I have no excuse for this other than that, sometimes I'm lazy which causes me to suck. Please forgive me, I'm perfect in so many other ways that hopefully this is not such a big deal (SIKE!).

My son can't get a pic taken without with out throwing up some strange gang-looking sign. He's 6! Oh. and he has to stick his tounge out too! lol

Those pics remind me of the kind that you take in those old fashioned photo booths that come out on a strip--I can tell your #2 has a great sense of humor!

The second one is my favorite! He's a goofball for sure...future class clown??

It would be a miracle if I could get my son to even look in the direction of the camera when I want to take a picture. As it stands, he usually runs in the other direction just to spite me. Sigh.

These pictures are darling, by the way.

I actually love the composition and lighting of the photos. Sort of vintage-y.

Thanks for stopping by my little blog! :)

Now, those are MUCH better than the images of them throwing up in their mouths.

Those pics are awesome! I'm gonna try to get my little guy to do this. He gives me the same fake smile deal ...or he gives me the blank stare I'm-not-doing-this-right-now face ...or, he's not even in the frame 'cause he ran away. I think he might be into making faces, and hopefully I can get some sweet pics like this.

Your son's personality comes shining through in these photos. Love these.

Cutest little boy ever! (I only have girls, so I can say that) but your kids are seriously cute. Love your blog, by the way! Stumbled here & have been reading from the newest on back.
