Let's agree that I need more practice with the camera, but I think these shots are adorable. Am I biased? Yes.
Lesson, the first:
If you're going to set the timer to take continuous shots, give your subject a heads up.
Wait. What? There's another one?
How many is it going to take?
It's done now, yeah? Yes, mom, it's done.
So! Funny! Can't! Breathe!
Aaaaaand it's an epidemic.
Lesson, the third:
For the photographer in me: Make sure all subjects are in the shot. For the model in me: Stay in the frame, jackass.
Oooh! Cheek-kiss success!!
Back in the shot. But with the giggles again. Mom's swooping in for another kiss.
And she's gone. Where'd I go?
This was a well-spent morning and a blast to do. I now have some great shots of my mom and I. There are so few in existence due to our consistent failure to act like normal humans when a camera's around. I also learned several lessons about photography, clearly.
Look at just how much fun it can be to make mistakes.
