I love it when they are not Willing-FX4

Does it make me a bad photographer when some of my favorite photos are those when the subjects are NOT WILLING to give me that $100 smile?

I love these two photos for that very reason...the MONKEY looks bugged and I'm sure he's thinking, "If you try to make me smile ONE MORE TIME I'm going to drop kick you...really, I can do it, I may be small but I'm just bugged enough to make it happen!" lol!

And my niece pictured below...She's scared witless...witless! She didn't like the Hay, not ONE bit...and so when Mom went to help her I snapped away...

So you tell me...am I sick or twisted because these kinds of photos make me laugh and smile and are Beautiful in their own way?

Tell me your opinion?

Really...lol

But at least admit...their cute! :)



And then I had to give a shout out to MOMSHOTS...they have this great thing every week that they call the TIP of the WEEK. This was Spot Coloring! Isn't it great!

Join Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta--it's so much fun! :)

Love

Are you kidding? Those shots are sooooo cute!!!
I love them.
Ummmm.... I don't have time to learn that cool color shot thing. Can you give me a quick lesson?


Start planning that takeover. I think Ree would find it amusing.

Brooks said...

THe shots are great! You are capturing the kids in their 'moments', they can't all be posed and smiling all the time, that would get boring!
I tagged you! check out my blog!

LOL about REE!

Shelle! If you are sick & twisted....then i am in that Club with you!!! :)

I love pictures like that... i mean.... you know--those kids weren't REALLY in pain or getting hurt or anything... YOU captured REAL LIFE as it was happening!!!

you are an awesome Photographer. I mean it. YOU. ARE.

and ummm.... teach me to walk in the light of the Spot Coloring.

Hey SHelle::::

Dolly said...

I love the monkey picture!!Adorable-♥ So cute :) I have one of my daughter, Madeline, when she was ten months old. The photographer put her in a basket with her cousin, Maryn. Mad' did NOT like this one bit-Maryn was smiling and waving to the camera, while Maddy cried her little eyes out. There was only one photographer who made her smile...a man! (She grinned and posed for him. You could tell she was a daddy's girl:)

OK so hey do we know of any theaters that are going to play "twilight"????? Let's go or get a group together or something.....unless of course I'm way out in left field and you already did that!!!

Tiff said...

You're a little bit sick AND a little bit twisted,
kinda like a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll, but that's what I like so much about you!
Lots of people get pleasure from other people's pain, that's why Funniest Home Videos is so, well, FUNNY!
Lotsa bloggy love,
Tiff

They are very artsy and capture a real moment. I like them.

Even when you're taking a "bad" picture it's still cute! Why can't I do that??? lol! By the way, I left you some bling on my blog - go check it out! Amy

Debbie said...

Just found your blog and love it. I think the idea about the Pioneer Woman is great. I wish someone would explain to me what is so appealing about her. I feel I am missing out! But I would love for you to figure out how to get her to comment.

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I agree. I'd much rather have a picture of my girls when they don't know we're taking a picture. It just captures them more naturally and not with their pasted on smile.

Cute pics!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hey I love you blog! It's so cute. And it really freaked me out when I saw your header. For a second I thought that was me sticking my head out the window with the camera. We could be twins!

Love these photo tips too!

Aubrey said...

Those are actually some of my favorite shots. Yes, I am sick & twisted too then!

Amanda said...

All your pictures are great.

Too much brown-nosing?

It's true, I promise.

Shannon said...

Sorry I've been away for a few days! Did ya miss me ;)


Some of my best photos are those candid moments... 'cause most of the time when I am trying to get a posed shot (everyone look at the camera and smile! look this way! stop squinting and SMILE...) it just doesn't work out the way I want it!

binks said...

You be tagged -
GO! NOW!

And I expect some payback for the whole PW comments!

Scary Mommy said...

Those are awesome photos. That little monkey is too freaking cute!

And, you may be sick and twisted, but I am too--- one of my all time favorite photos is of my son screaming his lungs out. His face is just pure anger/terror/sadness. And it was over a lollipop.

Those are great pics! I love them even if that's not how they were "supposed" to turn out! Great job!
