We’re a little non-traditional around here.
A few years ago I, once again, forgot it was ‘school picture day’. And sent someone to school with unbrushed hair, or a not-picture-worthy shirt, or some other horrendous mom-crime that we moms unwittingly commit against our kids. It was then that I decided to forgo the traditional school picture forevermore. And I determined that instead I’d take my own ‘school pictures’, my way.
I can’t say that it’s been a smashing success because, well… I’m the photographer. But I can say I’ve had fun in the process. And I’ve saved a wad o’ cash by not spending $40 per kid on a package of pictures I’ll never use beyond sending a few to my mom. (Remember when you’d get your kids school pictures, cut out the wallet sized and send them out to all your relatives? Geesh. So glad that email and blogging resolved that craziness.)
But I digress. Today I wanted to share a quick outtake from my recent session with Jude and Shepherd for their individual ‘school pictures’. I took them out together because Shepherd can’t not laugh when Jude is around. And I found all that smiling pretty contagious myself. Because my boys are just plain cute.
