The other day, the sun was in the perfect spot in our backyard to take some photos of my boys. Of course Oliver was the perfect model and looked at the camera and smiled, or at least looked pleasant. Grayson, on the other hand, was another story….as you will see.
This is how it typically goes whenever I try to take nice pictures of Grayson.
Me: “Hey, Grayson!”
“Can you smile for Mommy, or do you want to blow some bubbles?”
Grayson: “Buppmmmm!!” (bubble!)
Then he made several attempts at blowing bubbles.
But this was how he was blowing. Probably not going to get the best results when your mouth is only open a tiny slit.
“Look I got some bubbles on my hand!” (Or at least I think that’s what he would say if he could talk.)
“Eww! It’s so slimy!!!”
“Let me try again. Maybe if I close my eyes it’ll help.”
“Ok, it’s not working. I’m gonna go play with my car!”
“Grayson, can we take a quick picture now?”
“Ok, you get one smile, but it’s only going to be for a split second, so you better have a quick trigger finger. Oh, and I’m also not going to stand with the pretty sun in the background.”
“Thanks ok, my darling. I’ll take what I can get!”
And here’s my other photogenic son, who hasn’t yet gotten tired of having my camera in his face.
