Fame has a price

Remember when I said the boys were happy to pose for me whilst I learn the tricks of my new camera? I may have to retract that statement. See for yourself.



Well okay, no smile but at least he's not grimacing.




Wow, dude, could you look any more put out?

Yup, guess that answers that question.



But guess what? My camera doesn't take 4 min to take a second shot.



Or a third.


Or a forth. As long as I can stay upright and keep the laughing I am doing from shaking the camera too much.



Yes, I can and you know what else? You cannot resist cracking a smile when I howl with laughter like that.

Never.

Gotcha dude!

And if you are wondering if your brother shares your sentiments on posing for me and my incessant picture taking here's your answer.

Why I do believe that's a yes if I have ever seen one.

Hmm, me thinks they are OVER the photo sessions. LOL :-)
But ... with the speed of your new (I WANT ONE) camera, you'll be able to catch those "unposed" smiles that come when they believe the photo shoot is finished!! :-)

Oh my gosh - too cute! I'm so glad to see you are having fun with your camera. And yeah, your boys may not be having as much fun with it as you are, but WE sure are enjoying the fruits of your labor! :)

Your boys and my boys?

SO THE SAME.

Especially in their cuteness :)

Kristin said...

Oh dear! Funny stuff. :)

Wow, my kids are little divas. They see a camera and start yelling CHEESE! Those are great shots and you're not helping me with my yearnings for a new camera.

Lori said...

looks like you have to get creative for your next photo shoot... maybe try taking pics while the tv is on or something??

Eamon said...

Looks great. Wish I could do that (haven't a clue where to start on my template ..).

Stacie said...

lol.

My kids love to do mean faces, funny faces and any face that mom DOESN'T want on camera...so I let them have their fun and then I say, ok, one happy face for mom. :)

It usually works...
Your boys are great no matter what face they give. :)

Great shots! I had my camera on burst last weekend at the firestation, hoping to get at least one photo of J with a smile while standing on the truck with his friends. I don't. His buddies are all smiles and he is silly, silly, silly.

I keep telling Jon...THIS is why I need a camera that takes three shots per second. To TRULY capture a mood.

I love these shots!!!

I so love the brown and blue on your blog. Think I am gonna do my new bedroom those colors. Thanks for the inspiration.

Shari said...

My girls can be hams, too. It's harder to get them smiling for those "just because" pixs, though.

Natalie said...

that is too funny!!! I want one of those cameras too...or at least one that goes faster than my current one!!! great shots and it looks like you are doing great on learning how to use it!

Misty said...

That is SO funny..... My Olivia is the EXACT same way... no fun for Mom, though!

Ashley said...

Too funny!

LaskiGal said...

Just you wait until they get a hold of that camera. Could mean trouble :)

Jack is such a ham! I love how your camera takes such crisp photos! Mine would be quick too.....but blur city!

Fantastic!

I gotta know how it goes when his future wife sees those shots. Keep me posted, k?

That last one is a keeper too!

I think they really love it, they just have to act like they don't, you know all macho and stuff. HA!

Those are just my favorite type of photos. You can totally see their personalities.

They are SO cute!
