how my shoot began

how my shoot began

then, as always, it turned into fun and tears (everyone) and begging (mom), bribing (mom).
“Mommy will buy you a Mercedes-Benz if you just smile at the camera!”

Kids are crazy, smiling one minute, turning into the hulk the next. I have three children much older then these, but I remember what it was like to be like her.

At least, as the photographer, I can watch, laugh & snap away…then drive away. To my house, my kids being quiet as church mice. They don’t want to share or show or ask me anything. I am ignored & I am grateful.

      Jen, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the nomination. I have the one you have bestowed upon me & have discovered that WordPress will not allow me more then one of the same type.
      The best part of getting the award is being told by the person who gave it. I humbly accept & thank you for your visits.
      I hope you visit often. Blessings to you~amy

      She gave a five star performance, most of the time, she was smiling.

  3. Too funny, I remember what it was like to be her too. I have heard that shooting teenagers is even worse. They are not happy with anything. Hope you got some good pictures for mom. At least she will be happy then. 🙂

      I’ve shown mom a handful & she seemed happy so far. Her kids were wonderful, It way my fault because I was over thirty minutes late. The kids were champions! My teenage daughter’s love to have their hair & make up done & I call it a model photo shoot & we all get very silly~amy
