I Heart Faces–Bright and Vivid!

 

Let’s be honest…

I only dress our all boy kiddo in bright colors when we’re heading out in crowds.

And my husband is either outfitted in camo, or camo with a blinding neon safety vest.

For this week’s I Heart Faces theme, neither scenarios make for great BRIGHT and VIVID shots!  Well, unless you count my rosy cheeks from chasing a quick-legged little preschooler…

In fact, most days I use echolocation to find my kid in a dirt pile if that tells you what kind of ‘bright and vivid” we end up in… head to toe!

So I happily sought moments of a darling little Miss Cindy Lou Hoo wearing her favorite hat.  And I realized that sometimes… making fishy faces behind the camera to cajole a kid into smiling… well, it doesn’t work ;)

Love that she gave it right back to me!  She is a hoot and a holler and I love her to pieces!

 

Head on over for lots more bright and vivid cheeriness!

Oh, she is adorable! LOL...yeah, I can imagine she did just copy you instead of laugh at you. :) They never quite do what we want, do they??

Heather said...

Great picture.
I used to dress mine in matching neon to go on summer vacation!!

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

That is cute! The idea for matching neon? I am IN! I do matching swimtrunks, because with a billion little bare chested boys at the lake/pool, you can't tell who anyone is.

Krystyn said...

Oh, but those are such good fish lips?

My girls do that, too, so I have to be careful which silly face I make behind the camera.
