Social Saturday – Easter Photo Outtakes

I showed off my painted wood canvas earlier this week and mentioned that there was a story behind the photo of my boys. I thought I would share it today! 
Take 1: I get the boys to pose in my parents’ front yard. 
 But oh no! Mommy’s attempt for a quick photo goes way wrong.
Not centered.
Cut off the oldest’s head…

Take 2: The baby is already done with this gig. 
He repeatedly crawls away as soon as his daddy sits him next to his big brother!

Take 3: I suggest to big brother that he is going to have to “hug” his baby brother to keep him in place.
I think he misinterpreted this for a choke hold

Take 4: Still a little strong on the choke hold and now big brother isn’t looking my way.

Take 5: Ahhh, now big brother is looking and baby brother isn’t. 
The choke hold appears to have loosened a bit though!

Take 6: The perfect combination of both boys looking and appearing relatively happy!
This one is golden!
But they are all keepers in my book.
Even the outtakes! 

Yep, color this beautiful boy done.

Can you read the attitude in those pretty blue eyes?

I know I was lucky this only took 6 takes to get the winning photo.
How many takes does it take you to get a good photo of your kids?

When my son was small, we had this stuff called film. We wouldn't know if we had a keeper until we dropped off the film, waited, paid for prints, and sorted through them!
