Every time I attempt a photo shoot with the boys I think "this time will be different, I will get a good picture" and after about five minutes of scrambling around, yelling "say cheese" and "look at me" I am disappointed. However I have done enough of these little at home photo shoots to know that I will wrap it up laughing as it for sure will be hilarious.
For Brenner's birth announcements I spent an afternoon decorating an old wagon which even involved me going to Walmart to buy a wooden letter. Jeff took the big boys out of the house one morning so I quickly set up the shoot. I tested the lighting, made a plan and held my breath. I know my babies and know they are not like the ones in pictures, they are not calm or content so I had a few seconds to snap a good picture. Quietly yet quickly I undressed him, set him in the wagon and began clicking away. After a few pictures he peed, ok no big deal you won't see it in the picture, I continued to reposition him and click. Then it happened, he pooped everywhere, not just a normal poop either, it shot out of the wagon and all over the white blanket. Great, just great, that ended our first attempt. I took time to study one of my favorite photographers, tried again and ended up with this.
Today I tried again, got the white blanket out, got everyone dressed and envisioned the adorable pinterest pictures that scroll through my homepage. Oh my it sure was funny...don't drop him!
My mom saw this pose on pinterest and thought it would be so sweet, ya well this is reality people. Look at Brenner's pout!
