Or is it just mine? Or is it something to do with being the child of a Photographer? My eldest, who we will call Spud (or Spud Bob the Amazing Wonder Boy) is finally learning to smile a vaguely natural smile when it comes to his photos. The youngest, also known as Puff (or the Agga Puff)…. is a photographers nightmare! He has to pull the most horrifyingly gross and disgusting faces he can possibly come up with! Here you go… witness the atrocity! Oh, and it was actually freezing so even though we’re in Florida and you guys up north don’t think it gets cold down here … there was frost on the ground and ice on the deck, so the hats and coats were actually justified. Honest! See! You can even see the frost on the lawn in the first couple of pictures!
So, after some chopping and cropping and a couple of quick edits here and there I came up with two not totally unusable images! This first is one I will consider using for Christmas Pictures, only because it’s December 5th and if I don’t get cards ordered today people will not be getting them until the New Year! The alternative is to use a non-family specific card…. *gasp*. Oh the horror!! Ha!
This second one …. well…. it’s okay… but it’s rather boring, don’t you think??
Because, for all my disgust at his reluctance and lack of cooperation …… the earlier set of pictures really do truly reflect him and his personality. My Puff.
