I attempted to take my children’s pictures the other day in their Thanksgiving outfits. They will be visiting Atlanta with family while my husband and I remain home this year. My plan was to send cards out this week to family since we won’t be able to spend the holiday with them this year. Notice I used the words “attempted” and “plan”. As usual things didn’t go well and 15 minutes into the session we had a meltdown. Yes I was the one who had the meltdown.
We encountered some crying, screaming, dog poop, a baby eating leaves and my son rolling around in the grass. Not to mention the fact I left my reflector and some props at home and we had to turn around and go home 3 separate times. We had a very crazy session. But this is why I love my children, because I already completely expected all of this to happen. Except for the dog poop.
It’s never a good thing when dog waste blends in with mud/dirt. I honestly couldn’t tell which was which until I put my knee in it. As soon as the smell hit me, I knew it was time for us to go. I could not continue any further, if I had, I might of just screamed.
I did manage to get 2 photos. One of which represents my children oh so well. So this will be the Fall photo. I still have to attempt our family Christmas photo and honestly I’m a little worried at how it will turn out, but I will always remain hopeful. For tomorrow is always a new day!!!
