There are few things on earth that are harder to photograph than your own children! There, I said it! I’m not the first to admit it though. I’ve heard many great children’s photographers confess that they just stink at capturing their own children’s portraits.
First, they are photographed endlessly so they get mighty tired of that black thing in front of your face.
Second, children always give their parents all kinds of angst that they’d never dream of giving another person.
And third, as a photographer you just don’t have the same kinds of patience for your own as you do others.
There we were on Easter Sunday! My children were oh so adorable thanks to the stylish wardrobe pieces their Mimi had chosen for them. I wanted nice photos. Mimi wanted nice photos. And they had to be done before the children started playing and eating and ruining their beautiful clothes.
The children wanted to eat and play. All the adults wanted to eat and play too! So I did what I could as fast as I could! What I got is totally precious and completely priceless. I definitely captured my children’s personalities!
Want to see my attempt at a group photo with all three? Hilarious! Noah was apparently running away, Ezra was yelling about bugs, and Joyanna was discovering grass for the first time. She was apparently not too thrilled!
This one is my favorite for the day! It is just so soft and sweet! Look at the luscious lips! Just makes you want to cover her with smooches! Next week’s I Heart Faces challenge is “Soft and Sweet.” I’m thinking of entering this photo.
Yes I was a Mamma – Razzi on Easter Sunday. I think it just might have been worth it. I created quite a little collection of hilarious photos! Perfect depictions of just who my children really are right now. I never want to forget these small moments.
