You know what, getting pictures with teens is difficult. First, they have opinions of what pictures you should share and how to take pictures, and where pictures should be taken. Then, finding a time to schedule taking pictures with all of us is super tricky. But, I got them, and I love how the pictures turned out.
Jeff and Me
We did two sets of bluebonnets pictures. The first time I bribed the kids and said “Dress in whatever expresses you.” The second time, we all dressed as steampunk.
It’s kind of weird to see my boys as being super taller than me, even when I have an inch or so heel on.
I’m thinking of framing some of the pictures of Jeff and I from the pictures this year. I super love our pictures together.
Let’s let the middle kid go first
Batman has a fair amount of steampunk gear, and we tried posing him and the most hilarious one just screamed “Hello person on the street, would you like to buy a watch?”
Then when we said all right, let’s try another pose, and he dropped to the ground like he was dying, and then the other kids ran in like he’d been murdered.
Those other two pictures are from our first photoshoot. I thought it was hilarious his idea of an outfit that perfectly shows who he is, is that t-shirt and his hat.
Truthfully it does suit him.
The Artist borrows my clothes. So, half of her outfit is mine. It’s super weird to say that.
But, that middle picture and the bottom one are the outfit she picked out to represent who she is. She loves mushrooms, and embellished that sweater herself to create that look, so it truly is who she is.
And she super loves picking on her brothers, you know like all siblings like to do to each other.
When I said pick an outfit that represents you, Superman immediately grabbed the turkey hat and a book. Then he just so happened to be wearing his co-op shirt and shrugged and said, “Meh, it’s me.” Which it is.
Superman of my kids has the least amount of steampunk items. But, he’s the kid most willing to humor me and pose kind of. I did have fun creating all of the pictures, especially the tackle Daddy picture.
10 years of bluebonnets means I don’t have a lot to say
I had so much fun with our second trip, and while the kids may have rolled their eyes, we did end up with some fun pictures.
