A Little Bit More About My Day

I read lots of blogs that have amazing pictures.  Most of them are moms with some MAJOR talent.  I have a D-90 with a really nice lens.  I often wonder how easy it is for these moms to take such beautiful pictures of their children.  I look at the pictures I take, and all I can hear is....

"Guys, I asked if you could all get together for a picture. PLEASE!"

"Jack, that is not a nice smile, please make a nice face buddy!!"

"Lucy, what is on your face?  Come on ..we are about to go into church.  You have been outside for 13 seconds.  What is all over you?"

"Emily, finger...nose??  Lucy, what kind of smile is that??  Priscilla...look at mama."

"Molly, here sweety!!"

"Priscilla...why are you crying AGAIN????"

"Lucy, what are you doing to Molly?"

"Can one of you guys wipe Priscilla's nose???"

"Priscilla, why are you crying AGAIN?"

Actually, that last sentence I say ALL DAY with our without my camera.  Why don't I see pictures like this on other mama blogs?  The blogs with beautiful pictures of their beautiful children. 

You know what..I am OK with not seeing it.  I know it happens, at least I assume it does.  But rest happens here...people cry, have dirty faces and make silly smiles.

And I tried to get a picture of me last night..but my neck looked like a chicken...just being honest.


  1. this made me smile, I always enjoy your blog.

  2. Thank you for the chuckle. I have the exact same thoughts. Here's to dirty faces, crying babes, and wonderful family pictures.

    Blessings, Elizabeth

  3. That was funny! but you seriously take some gorgeous pictures of your kids!

  4. Love your blog Lisa! This post made me laugh-I can totally relate!

  5. Hi there sweet girl! With us getting ready to move I've been a bad bloggy friend. My kids choose not to smile for me all the time... and sometimes yes... there are tears. Of course they are usually mine! LOL

  6. Your picture taking adventures sound like mine! But yours always seem to turn out beautiful!

    And lets just not start on the whole neck thing! I cannot even begin to count the amount of pictures I have deleted because of my neck! Glad I'm not the only one:)
