You forget as they get older…

How hard it is to catch a near 2 year old with a camera.

I took photos of a co-worker’s nephew yesterday as a Mother’s Day present and he was cute as a button… but I sure got a workout.

And don’t YOU forget! Only three more days to bid!

    I have the same problem with my niece! You have to tell her to stop and say “monkey face” for her to stop.

    That is the cutest little boy EVER!

    Nice job! I’m not sure there’s much better than getting a good shot of kids for a friend. What a nice idea for a gift!

    Hearing an expert say it’s hard doesn’t make me feel so bad. I need to take a million photos just to get a few I like!

    Great present for your co-worker! The first one is my favorite too.

    My kids make me work for every shot. I had a great one lined up the other day that would have found them sitting in the sunlight smiling off camera, and my wife’s shadow (showing that she was raking) stretching towards them in the late-afternoon sun. However, neither would cooperate once I tried to get the shot, and they ran off in opposite directions before I could say “monkey face”.

    Your hard work was worth it! Those are fantastic, as usual.

    You did an AMAZING job! I wasn’t sure how you were going to capture him in photos since he never stays put, but you captured him beautifully. Too many favorites to pick just one! THANK YOU!

    Someone’s going to have a great Mother’s Day. The one in the hat makes me melt.

    OH my gosh!!! You managed such fantastic shots! I swear, every photo I have of my kids before the age of four is of the back of their heads 🙂
