Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and interior design. Hope you have a nice stay!

Dude, Where's My Picture?

I don't know why, and I'm pretty sure it defies the law of physics, but for some reason I am finding it impossible to get one photograph, where both my kids look even semi picture perfect. This is no joke. I uploaded almost 1000 pictures this morning, and I can't find even one where I have both of them looking at the camera, let alone, smiling AND looking at the camera. Am I missing something here?

Individually, they are both adorable (yes, this is coming from their mother who thinks the sun shines out their little butts.)




But together?

I get a lot of this...


(This is what happens when I say "smile")

and, a little of this...



but mostly, I get this...




I have a newfound respect for all of you photographers out there. Without you, I have a feeling my Christmas card would end up looking something like this....


(How'd that baby move so fast in the background???)

Do any of you have any tips on how to get a good picture of two kids that refuse to smile on cue, and/or sit still? I have a feeling the answer is take A LOT of pictures... there's got to be a keeper in there somewhere, right????

To think, our parents used to do this with film. Whoever was developing all those pictures must have been laughing all the way to the bank!

It Can't Be That Easy...

Holy Adorable!!!
