Photos or Pho-nos. Am I the Only One?


In case you haven't noticed, I love to photograph my children. 


However, sometimes I get these grand ideas in my head that I can ACTUALLY take pictures.
 

You know, like a real photographer. 


And once in a while, they turn out nicely.  
Awww. Emily. So small.



But other times... Lately, I decided I want to take some Christmas photos of my kids. 

Real photographers, does this make you want to bang your heads against walls? 

I'm sorry. I bow down to your talent. 


Inspiration: 
Kristin Neufeld Photography. AMAZING!!
Dudes, she is a freaking genius. I cannot do this. 

Like, so terrible. Check this out. 

Reality:
Gabrielle: Why, sister?    Emily: It will be over soon.
Emily: Your bumbo chair is messing this up.     Gabrielle: Um, no. It's your enormous blanket.
Emily: Seriously. Learn to sit up.    Gabrielle: I'm four months old, okay?
Ah well. These are the moments.


 Or you know, there's THIS adorable idea...

Reality:
If I defuse this bomb, maybe she'll let me out of the corner...
DROOL on the electrical lights!
Nathan: That seems safe.
Step One: Rid myself of this shiny net. Step Two: Hurl myself out of this ridiculous chair. Step Three: Find my pyjamas.

Smaller lights? Better lighting? Someone who can operate a camera? Who knows.

Might be time to save my pennies for a photo session... or maybe I'll add it to my list for Santa.

You win some. You lose some.
