and yes, this is my family !

boys gone wild
{don't ask}
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
finally
a photo shoot
with
my kids

as day light savings
hit me smack in the head
and
the realization
that I don't have any recent pictures
of my own children
and that
"sneaux"
is right around the corner

we ran
actually
we
full out sprinted
to
the
beautiful old stone house
down the road
from
us

and
I shot pictures
fast
really fast
screaming at them
the whole time

"I'm losing daylight"
"stop being silly"
"stand up"
"stop laughing so hard"
"look at me"
"open your eyes"
"I'm still losing daylight"
"knock it off"

I almost said
"don't climb that dead tree"
but with his dad there to catch him
I figured what the heck
I'll get a good photo
out of this
even if he breaks a leg

and we're talking
WAY
up there
not just a few branches
up there
but
like
WAY
up there

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHA my sons do 'boys gone wild' at me every time they see my MuthaCam come out ... hahahahahahahaha [I'm glad we're not the only family with Slightly Twisted-&-Sarcastic Humor going on!] Your kids, my love, are STUNNING. They also are very obviously comfortable with you behind the camera, screaming or not! good job, baby!

  11. Your family is as beautiful as you are, with those wonderful smiles and oh, the joy! These are fabulous photos. What treasures -- the photos and the subjects!

    We got sneaux this weekend. Two inches. Fine, good enough. It can stay till April with no more. The end!
