Funny Faces and Fab Kids

Here’s Amelia in yet another adorable outfit from Fab Kids. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get her to stand still and smile. This is the closest I got….

Funny faces and Fab Kids.
Why is it so difficult to take pictures of kids. They refuse to stand in one spot. When they go to the spot they usually sit down and look away. Or if you’re lucky to get them to stand in a spot they start sneezing or coughing. They complain about how long it is taking to take a picture but what they don’t realize is if they would just listen to you the whole process would be over in one second.

Then after thirty minutes of trying to get them to stand still you grab them and force them to stand still. Of course, at that moment they relax and smile beautifully and you look like a worn down monster clutching your angel children. Everyone sees the picture and wonders why you were in such a bad mood that day. They think it’s a shame that you don’t realize how lucky you are to have such well behaved kids. Then one day they will have kids and when they try to take pictures with them wonder why their kids aren’t as well behaved as yours….

    I feel your pain. Took the younglings to get their portraits done…something to have with all of them together. Took forever to get the perfect shot. In the meantime, the photographer forgot to delete one where the younglings were acting normal…and I bought it…just so people (and they) could see what I really go through.

    Have you thought of making it a game. Have her pretend to be whatever she’s into…Frozen, superheroes, Star Wars…and have her model as one of the characters she likes. Or take action shots so maybe she’s not feeling so in front of the camera as to put on a show, and you’ll have a nice, natural shot, and a memory of what was going on that day.

    I do love her picture here. The finger smile is the absolute beat, although I know it’s not what you wanted.

    Good luck on the photo taking.

      We let her do karate for the Christmas card pictures but her hands cover her face :( We got one shot where she is laughing as I hold her down… I picked it because like you said it shows what I go through and it’s true to her personality.

        I bet both are adorable. In the future, you’ll pull them out, she’ll be embarrassed and you’ll miss these days, but love the memory of what a spitfire she was as a toddler.
