one reason

...and it's a good one.
When I take pictures of my girls I usually end up with lots and lots of shots like these.

You know what I mean? As soon as my camera turns on and makes the little chiming sound these cute, sweet, adorable faces begin to contort and twist and...well, you get the idea. Oh sure, it's funny (and I laugh, which isn't so helpful). I especially enjoy the pictures of a big smile with angry eyebrows. Try it, it's funny. Make the meanest, most angry face you freeze your eyes that way and try to smile really big. Funny, right? Okay, so after about a gazillion pictures of funny faces I just want to scream. I try my best to capture the girls in candid shots because posing for the camera obviously doesn't work very well, but every once in a while I'd like a shot of them together, happy,smiling, and yes, looking at the camera. Is that too much to ask? Huh? Is it? Okay, don't answer that!
So after many, many pictures of super silly faces I eventually end up with gems like these.
So it's all worth it in the end. Yes, I download a gazillion pictures from my camera, but I delete the super-ridiculous shots, of course I also keep some. (You never know when you'll need an embarrassing photo.) And yes, when I finally get pictures of my girls like these I think it's my one good reason for carrying my camera with me everywhere I go and taking enough pictures to choke a horse. What's your one good reason? Happy Weekend xo ANG
