I have taken thousands (millions, maybe?) of candid pictures of my kids through the years. They’re running or eating or yelling – doing anything except trying to have their picture taken.
I love these pictures.
But sometimes I crave more professional-looking pictures. Pictures that I can hang with pride above my fireplace. Pictures where their hair is brushed, their boogers are on their bedroom walls (and not in their noses), there’s no food on their faces… you understand what I mean.
So a few weeks ago, I decided I was going to go for it. I let them know we were doing a photoshoot, and I got everyone ready.
It started out with shock that I was actually going to take pictures of them.
