Back behind the lens

Ashlie asked me if I would take some pictures of her with my fancy camera. We hopped in my car and headed for the park where the light was just perfect!

I think it's kind of hard to be photographed by an aunt or a parent, because you feel kind of silly posing, but you don't want crazy pictures of you sticking your tongue out.

So I told her to turn some music on.

And she settled right into it.

The next evening we decided to take some more pictures. This time at Campbell Valley Park.

And things were pretty much effortless.

Jade came along too.

And I managed to get some pictures of her too.

When she wasn't twerking or showing me her duck lips, or making fun of Ashlie.

That morning Dave and Alexis left their kids with me. So I drove them straight to Old Navy for outfits and then straight to the farm for pictures of their own.

The capes were a brilliant "on the way out the door" thought.

Which happened to work really well.

Ruben mostly just wanted to climb on my lap and snuggle.

But that actually worked really well for these pictures.

Ada did great until Grosspapa stole her sucker.

An outtake of Ashlie and Jade (I'd told them to pretend I was yelling at them - they'd been goofing off too much :)

And then Kandace asked me to take a few pictures of the boys and their dog.

Honestly, Cubby was the easiest subject to photograph that evening!

But somehow, that means the pictures were so true to who they are.

Now I just need some pictures of my own kids...
