A Day in the Garden

Friday was a gorgeous, warm Spring day! The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and the tulips were in full bloom. My friend/neighbor, Katy, asked me to take some pictures of her family, and I knew just where to take them. We headed to the Botanical Gardens in Grapevine to snap some portraits.

I took the pictures of Katy's family - 2 daughters ages 6 and 13. Easy, peasy. Everyone smiled right on cue and looked directly at the camera. Then Katy was kind enough to help me get some pictures of my boys. Not so easy, peasy....

All I wanted was a picture of my two little darlings in their coordinating outfits gazing lovingly at me with their darling little {completely unforced} dimpled smiles. Is that too much to ask???

Um, yeah.

It was torture. I tried every trick in the book, but no dice. :( I did get a few decent ones...













But I got a lot more terrible ones. Ha! These are my favorite bloopers...


So much for frolicking in the sunshine and capturing priceless portraits. Perhaps my standards are a bit too high... ;)

I think the bloopers are the winners... I see some personality there! Love the one of you holding Drew while he tries to backflip! Ha!

Thanks for "keepin it real" with the bloopers! I love the one of Drew arching his back. I'm sure it wasn't fun at the time, but they're sure fun to look at later. Carpenter boys can't take a bad picture. :)

That is hilarious! I feel your pain sister! I've given up on pictures of both girls. For Christmas, we did one of each of them. ;) Sad, huh?

Such great pics!!! Love those boys, their blue-blue eyes and precious smiles!

Bloopers are the best. It's REAL life, indeed. Laughing out loud over them!
