You should all know that I am trying. I’m trying to take pictures that are more posed, more “traditional”. Some of you want that precious and perfect image above your mantle, and for you I’m giving it my all. However, I find that I’m failing… badly. Case in point: this lovely picture. I’m finding that this is about as posed as I can get – and I’m sorry, but I love it!!!
A different angle, a different emotion… and I love it even more!!!
Am I hopeless? Should I have this sweet little guy sitting sweetly, smiling into the camera? I have to say NO! NO! A thousand times NO! I love the dimple, the sparkle in his blue eyes and the way the warm sun is tickling the edge of his face. This picture captures something that, to me, a posed shot just can’t.
All the best stuff happens between the poses. Would I have this one as a portrait on my wall? You betcha!!!
Ah, with these brothers a picture really does tell a story…. (don’t you Looooove this location? believe it or not, it’s in a cemetery – they always have the most colorful trees!)
Nothing says “good daddy” like a Care Bear in the pocket. Are you crying yet Sarah? I would be. : )
Thanks to the Craigs for the fun (and the cheesy potato casserole). We’re so blessed to call you our friends.
