"Smile for the Camera"

So, I have a nice camera, I love to take pictures, and I have what I consider to be excellent-looking subjects. Here's the issue . . . that flash has snapped in Autumn's little face at least 10,000 times or more in her young life (I wonder if I should look into the long-term effects of flash photography on a growing mind). I view all the pictures on Rachel's site of her beautiful little girls, hair curled, posed perfectly . . . and I get these crazy notions in my head that perhaps I, too, can create those same memories on film with my children!
And, not that I would ever complain . . . but, I thought it was only fair to share what I am working with . . .
Autumn refuses to have her hair fixed (she rips it out of her head immediately on the rare occassion that I am able to slip in a bow or rubber band), she is obsessed with her binkie, and tickles herself silly with her "camera smiles."
Rachel . . . count your blessings :)


  1. Karen, I am totally with you. Ava sees me with hair products and runs SCREAMING her head off. No joke. Still your pictures are adorable. Youll need them for when they are older to remind them how crazy they really were. I love them the best anyhow.

  2. Look how GORGEOUS Gavin is becoming!!! Wow... such a miricle boy!

  3. You are killing me Karen! :) Keep taking them because they are adorable. I can't believe how grown up Gavin looks! When did he grow up?????? And Autumn, don't even get me started. She has "Daddy needs a shotgun when I'm older" written all over her face.
