These are four of my own grandchildren. Should be easy, right?
Try to remain patient, I tell myself.
Don’t worry if it is not the day for a photograph.
Even if the weather is perfect and the colorful fall leaves are still on the trees.
Get kids involved in an activity to take their mind off the lens.
Two different days.
The idea is to get a nice photograph to send in a Christmas card, show how they’ve grown.
Hats make shadows on faces and features obliterated. Oops!
Solids are least distracting.
and yesterday’s attempt
You can always resort to running and jumping as I have in the past, when all else fails.
Let them make a funny face, then a serious one.
Remember it’s a bit easier WITHOUT the dogs
Impromptu, candids can come out the best
Great looking kids -perfect picture or not!
I’m back! Couldn’t get internet on the cruise. So I’ve missed quite a lot. I love these pictures. Those beautiful children have grown so much. And they are so photogenic!
Make up a bunch of each for cards and them you do not have to pick ….. they all have great holiday spirit!!!!! XOXOXO
Great images Ruth x
Thanks Bob. Good to see you.
Like herding mice at a crossroads!!
Well said, Joan. Thanks for your comment.
Beautiful Kids + Great Photographer = Wonderful Photos!
The running & jumping pic reminds me of the kids in Peter Pan taking off for Neverland.
Awww thanks Ellen.
Your grandchildren are growing up so fast. Too fast. However, they are still as beautiful as ever.
Shots are all good! They are growing up fast.
Gorgeous grandchildren, Ruth. I love your photos, especially the second and third ones. 🙂
I rarely get good G baby photos!
It’s tricky, isn’t it Gilly?
