These Days

Having a 5 year old pose for the camera is becoming more and more difficult. He thinks it funny to make alienish, weird, rockstar faces once the camera is about to click. Shortly after, he asks us to show him the picture on the lcd and when he sees his face he laughs hysterically and says "coo-wool."
And oh yeah, he was so thrilled to see creatures under the sea and so he said "Mom! I saw a lot of sea archies!"
Now my 1 year old is starting to learn how to smile for the camera. Shortly after his first studio pictorial - where he refused to give us a smile, leaving me and Jet sweaty and tired from jumping behind the photographer and peek-a-booing in the hope of getting the little one to smile - he has learned to automatically smile for the camera regardless of who is taking the picture.
Evidence below:

Rock on haha!

Hi Louann, wonderful reading and great pictures. I have a 14 year old daughter and started taking photo's of her from the moment she was born and continue to do so as it will be a pictorial study of her formative years growing from a baby to a young woman. The best shots are always the natural ones as it captures the real essence, and yours have got it. I'm sure that in years to come they will appreciate it. Look forward to seeing more.

How cute about your 1 year old. That smile is awesome!

I can relate to the hardship of taking posed pictures. I've learned to just take random shots and take the best one I see.
