Photographs

One of my fantasies is that instead of always being behind the camera, I can actually be in an occasional photograph with my kids.

Yesterday, I asked my daughter to take a picture of me and Cameron on his first carousel ride.

Important things to know:
1. The carousel was not moving at the time that the photographs were taken.
2. My daughter was moving at the time that the photographs were taken.
3. My daughter was blessed to have been coached by her two brothers, who are also expert photographers.




All things considered, I am very pleased with the results.

Niiiiiice! Did you specify you wanted your FACE? Be a lil' more specific next time:-)

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Not bad. It would have been good to see you though.

Julie said...

Well at least you can't complain that the angle made you look fat or the lighting was unflattering.

Trisha @ 3 Four and Under said...

At least she got Cameron in them right? It was his first ride. So funny!

Stacia said...

Nice gams, Mama!

Do you Nienie's blog? The lady blogger from Provo (lds) who was burned in a plane crash a couple of years ago? She's still in the recovery process but her 2.5/3 year old frequently takes pictures of her by stealing her camera phone. LOL He's pretty good! From one photographer to another, I"m proud to call that toddler a colleague... The Matthew's kids... they are more Picasso inspired, so I don't feel equipped to critque. lol

Let me just say you have beautiful eyes.

Kensi said...

hahaha, this made me laugh out loud. too funny!

Kim Ginsberg said...

Wow! Way to go! My son usually manages to just get my butt in any picture he attempts of me. And the picture's usually blurry so it looks bigger than the Titanic.
I really am impressed with your daughter’s phographic eye!

Blog Buddy said...

I don't comment much, but had to on this one because it totally cracks me up!!

Nancy Sabina said...

I've become an expert at taking my own picture. The result is that there are waaay too many very-close-up shots of me with 1/4 of some kids face in our family albums.

Emmy said...

Well you are almost in the pictures :)

becca said...

Vicky said...

Oh gosh, I can so relate!! I'm never in the pictures and because of that, I recently gave the camera to my 4 year old twins to see if they could come up with something good. HAHA!! That's all there is to say about the results!!

Libbie said...

But, before selecting the ugg sundance , you need to decide for what purpose you are going to use your ugg sundance boots . Like, just looking for a pair of ugg boots to wear with your jeans to feel casual on the weekends; going to be buy running shoes for sport or athletic purpose or just need ugg for dancing purpose. There is no dearth of choice in uggs ; it is all up to you what your preference is.

Do you realize that there is no one brand of MBT shoes out there that is best for every single runner? Every individual out there must get properly fitted in order to determine the best MBT shoe for them
