What Happens When You Give Your Son Your Camera

Taking pictures with my camera is one of Marcus' latest hobbies.

Photobucket

He had an impromptu photo shoot one day.  Of course, he snapped pics of his beloveds

Our humble tree

Photobucket

My feet

Photobucket

Me playing his first love

And then he wanted to just takes pictures of his ol' lady.

Photobucket

I don't know how to work a lens unless I'm behind it, so I felt weird just smiling and taking beauty shots.  I mean, how many different ways can one smile?  So in order to oblige him, I had to improvise.

Photobucket

Tyra would never call me fierce, so I went with this instead.

Photobucket

It's so sad that there are already so few pictures of me and now I get to add these to our archives.


Photobucket

Our children will look back on these pictures, wondering what Mom looked like when they were kids and voila, they'll see this.

Photobucket

But I feel the most sorry for my husband.

Photobucket

He may have told people that he's married to a sweet, demure little thing.

Photobucket

So now that I'm pinning myself as a freak on the world wide web, I'm afraid that Mike's reputation will be on the line.

Photobucket

Honey, I love you.

Photobucket

Just think back to the days when you thought I was cute.

Photobucket

If you're embarrassed, I promise I'll go to the mall and take some Glamour Shots and post them on your Facebook wall.


Photobucket

But at least I had on a little bit of makeup.

Photobucket

And wore my nicer sweats.

Photobucket

I love you so so much.  And I'm honored that you want to grow old with me.

Photobucket


And call me your one true love, your greatest treasure in this life.

Photobucket

Because that's how I feel about you.

Photobucket

Alright, done with the photo shoot.

Photobucket

The photographer gives his smile of approval.

I normally don't ask for feedback on my posts, but would you mind commenting, texting, calling, writing me a letter, messaging me on Facebook, sending me a telegram to let me know that you're still my friend?  If you're new to my blog and don't know me in person, have I just shooed you away?  Were you expecting deep lessons on raising a child with special needs and now you're just appalled?  Let me know. Thanks.

To relieve you of your utter disgust, I leave you with someone far cuter.

Photobucket

Okay, I'm going into hiding now. So long.

His photos are actually quite good. I say he gets it from you. And not that my opinion matters, but all your 1,001 faces look fierce to me.

Jane said...

Okay so the 8th picture of you for some reason totally
Captures your weird personality to me (the one where you're making almost chinky eyes). Not sure why. My sis sure is weird, people.
