Kids keepin' it real

It just might have something to do with the fact that I'm their mother, but I'm fascinated by the pictures my kids take. I had way too much fun going through our little camera today, deleting most shots and finding a few keepers from as far back as October.

They pose for each other in different ways than they might for me:


I love seeing the world they choose to frame and the items they find important.

There were more than a few hideous shots of me in various degrees of Bad Hair Day. I reserve the right to edit in this case.

I realized while clicking through the shots: these blurry, gritty moments are a truer representation of my life than the carefully cropped, often edited bits I choose to show.

Because the truth ain't always pretty. The truth has a lot of bad hair days in this house.

Just in case you were wondering.

Oh, these are awesome! Yes, they always get shots of toys, and they're some of my favorite. I love the "object" shots they took! They have your talent! The angles and focus!

Yeah, the photos they get of us are always, um, quite unflattering. I just decided at some point it's because of the worm's eye view they have, being shorter than we are. No human on earth looks good from under the chin and up the nose. Well, at least I HOPE I don't really look the way I look in their photos of me :) My theory makes me feel better.

GREAT photos!
