Wordful Wednesday - Taking Pictures With Toddlers


There were days the younguns would at least stay in the frame.  Being that their moving parts were vastly uncoordinated, they were easy to photograph.

(can you guess who is who?)



Then the darn things figured out how to use their appendages and discovered that there were things more interesting than the lens that was constantly up their cute noses.


I think Itty Bit takes this round for successfully distracting my sister from the photo taking business and wiggling his way closer to the ground.


Though May-May deserves a consolation prize for doing her darndest to pull fourteen muscles in my upper body.

(don’t mind my chubby cheeks and unkempt ponytail… just be impressed by the Southern Girl smile that stays plastered on my pained face ;)












Bonus points to Itty Bit for actually licking Ju in that last shot.

Ok. Those are some serious action shots lol. Love the licking one. Hilarious. That kid definitely got the comedy gene from you two haha. Anyway, yet again, it is after 2 and I am still up. But I am going to bed now. I had to wait till the tornado watch was cancelled lol. I can not go to bed if there is bad weather. I am always freaked out about tornadoes coming when I am asleep.

Well, I was going to go with Itty Bit being on the right but after looking at the other pics, I am not sure. Please don't leave me in suspense. That is the most adorable picture!!

Brandi said...

My guess is Itty is on the left? Cutest. photo. ever!!!

natalee said...

LOL... aww whats better than a little lick now and then.???

Kmama said...

I think Itty Bit's on the left because in picture #2 (of the series of pictures), May-May is making a similar face to the face the baby on the right is making in that very first picture.

These crack me up because I have my own toddler who is more often than not just a blur in pictures!

blueviolet said...

You really did do a masterful job of hanging on to that smile! I am mighty impressed!

Furry Bottoms said...

Your smile is awesome!! :) It is so hard taking a picture of toddlers when they don't want to be still!

Tiffany said...

I didn't know they made hair spray for smiles! I need to get me some of that! That is how you kept your smile in place, isn't it?

I have no clue which was which. And I also have a ton of those same type of photos.


Foursons said...

What? I don't see anything wrong with those shots. You mean they're supposed to look different than that? OK, enough of my cheesy sarcasm.

I love the series of shots- true life at its finest. And Itty Bit licking- oh my gosh that boy is the GREATEST.

Mom Of Many said...

Awesome! Love the pics...made me crack the licking thing...tell me did Mr. Daddy show him that one?? I'm betting on it.

You: Pose honey for me.

Mr. D: Slurp.

You: Thank you. Itty-bitty, get me a towel, will ya?
