the best part of being a photographer....

is when it just doesn't go as expected...
and if you are a photographer, you know about...

you know, the ones that don't get shown to the family, unless you have your pictures taken by me.
every photo shoot has their out-takes,
the blurry ones,
the under-exposed
 or the over exposed
the crying
 snot noses

and blinking
and the blinking is probably my favorite out-take of all

and really, what could be better than blinking and crying? 
capturing the blinking and crying in the same shot...
i just love the funny faces i sometimes get
well, maybe more than sometimes

dirty faces and all

i don't know what to say about this one...but hey, it wasn't me.. 
who doesn't love a nose picker???  
i swear there is one in every bunch..
she really seems quite proud of herself, doesn't she???

and the loving sibling interaction...

 and the general goofiness...

no they were not flipping me off.  nope...
they were telling me that i was their number 1 most favorite person in the world.
okay, maybe they were flipping me off, stinkers...

most of the time, the children tell me when the session is over.
they get grumpy and teary eyed
and uncooperative.
but more often than not, its daddy who makes the final call..
with just one look..
 that says "we're done!!!"

to all of my lovely most sincere apologies for this post, but you must know how happy you all make me.  the end result is great, but the getting there is amazing.  thank you all!!!

I love it! These are great! I always seem to catch the nose picker and even my newborns have been known to flip me the bird. Thanks for sharing these!!!!

Very fun! I love the pouty princesses! And that first snot nose picture is just gorgeous, despite the boogers. :-)

Hi Cindy!

Thanks for your comment on my blog : )

The job is a bit blah at the moment. Cutting a long story has taken AGES for my CRB to come through (to check im safe to work with children)..they lost the forms and then changed the forms... blah blah blah...and work have an inspection soon so until I get the CRB back I can't come in for a while!! Very annoying : (

Atleast I get to carry on with my Etsy stuff at home!!

Hope everything work wise is great down your end : )

Came here from The Lettered Cottage. This post is brilliant. The one with the blinking and crying just sent me over the edge. I really needed some laughter this evening, and this post provided just that. Thank you!
