Mini Photo Shoot Failure
The funny thing about working with three kids (your own three kids), one of which is really young, one of which is really not wanting to take pictures, and one perfect model is that no matter what, you're not going to get what you want. So I had this brilliant idea to do an impromptu shoot after school, before sun down, and being that is was a nice wintery day, not freezing!!! ...I thought we could pull it off. Ha! So, the little old abandoned barn I eye almost daily on a quiet street was suddenly a speedway during traffic time! The barn was crazy close to a street with no side walks, the kids weary, I finally said heck no, this is not worth the risk. Ok, we will find some brick wall really quick. Moan...groan... "Ugh, Mama, I am totally coming off a candy rush. I am crashing!!!" Oh geez! Well, too bad because all I want for Valentine's Day is a little foto shoot! "Ok, Ok. Maddy, I need some of your candy to wake up!" "I want CANDY!!!" screams toddler. UGH...
After too much of this, and finding nowhere possible, we drive home. URG. So the threesome sit on the ugly step in front of our ugly door, and... I got one picture. Ha, I am not really content with this in many ways, but I'll take it. It was starting to get way too cold to bother. As the kids run in I yell, You know we're totally doing this again! ...we know we know is all I hear as they slam the garage door. Ah me.
