Thanks for all the suggestions and help with my last post. I am trying to get 3 year portraits done for our house and to print for family. We took Austin to Sears Portrait Studio when he was 3, 6, and 9 months, then at a year and at two years. At 1.5 I did some portraits myself, but they were nothing special and I never had them printed out for family even. Each trip to Sears we do ala carte, but easily spend $60-$70 per session, so it adds up. The blue shirt one is the one I would print out to go on the wall with all the nieces and nephews school pictures at the Grandparents, so I’m looking for something comparable. I thought about putting him in a shirt and tie, but I figured that would just complicate the situation.
I did take a whole series of photos, 80 that day. I also did a bunch at the Zion National Park, like over 200, but it’s much harder than I anticipated. I also love outdoor shots, but it’s January, and while it’s probably warmer here than a lot of the country, it is still jacket and hat weather most days and I hate to freeze Austin for the sake of a good photo.
Here are some ou-ttakes for your Tuesday viewing enjoyment:
|Put the cars down and look at me!|
|Is it too much to ask for a smile?|
|Come out from under the stool!|
|Ok, now look at Mommy!|
|Look at me!|
|Leave the hat alone!|
|Well ok, but now the hat is all cocked back and it's a fake, squinty eyed smile.|
|Let's try a full pose, now smile!|
|Ok, open your eyes while you smile.|
|Finally a cute one, except for the horrible under bite, which no he DOES NOT have an under bite.|
|Well, maybe with a little editting!|
