brotherly... love?

And it was at this point that I decided it was time to do what a responsible parent would do: PUT THE CAMERA DOWN and intervene.  Nevermind that I was laughing so hard at Clark's unchanging oblivious solemn facial expressions.

And then they were all smiley again.

So many of my photos are a little crooked or out of focus these days, because the baby strapped to me and the neverstopsmoving three year old and the very dramatic two year old kinda prevent me from getting the camera when and where I want it.  I am always so sure of how and what I want to do, but lately I can't quite execute in the way I intend. It will probably be that way for awhile, until our routine falls into an easier pattern or someone grows a little more independent or I toughen up, huh? (And you know I am so not talking about taking photos anymore.)

  2. I had to laugh and then laugh some more. At Clark for holding strong. At Alice for being a drama girl, at you for snapping those photos.

    Thank you. All three of you. From the bottom of my melted heart.

  9. I like how serious he was, and then Alice realizing that she didn't like being strangled :) I have some picture of myself with my brother that look very similar.

  10. Okay, the second to last one had me in hysterics, too. Alice looks like she's absolutely about to stop breathing, while Clark has that stone-faced seriousness going on. All three definitely need to be memorialized in some awesome way, like blown up and framed somewhere. Loved this!

  11. I find it impossible to get a picture of my kids smiling nicely in a picture. Impossible. The outtakes are cute though!

  12. I like to look at these pictures approximately
    every 3 hours. Maybe they should be on my wall
    In a frame on purpose. Help me, okay?

  13. I have that same series, several actually.

    When my daughter was born we had to make a rule that no one could touch or hug above the shoulders because of the number of strangulations that occurred. We keep it in place because my daughter has freaky strong arms and almost killed her dad.

  14. I am in love with this series of photos. Think of how funny this is going to be for them to look at 25 years from now when they are grown and have little ones of their own.
    These are my favorite moments to capture with the camera.

  15. I think your photos are near-perfect all of the time. I could get lost in your Flickr account for days. :)
