Bailey and Rex

This photo actually says a lot about how my kids act in front of the camera. Bailey goes into "model mode” and starts posing and batting her eyes. Honestly, I don’t know where she picks up on this stuff. Rex, on the other hand, will do what he can to show off or place himself in some strange configuration while saying “look what I can do.” And if I’m not taking a photo of him (as was the case with this one), he’ll do everything in his power to insert himself into the photo. Usually he puts his face or hands right in front of the lens, so at least this time he had the decency to place himself inside of the focused region.

This was taken in Downtown San Diego. We attempted to get down there in time for the balloon parade, but we showed up just after it had finished. So we walked around the city for a little while then headed back home for lunch.

Sidenote: On the way home, we drove through Little Italy and I scoped out a photography store. I’m going to have to head back down there by myself one day and check it out.

This is a really cool shot – you know I love b&w photography, and this one has the perfect lightning, sharp focus on your daughter, blurred background that doesn’t distract, and curious action that makes us laugh. I’m like you – have no idea where my daughter picks up all that modeling stuff ;-)

Yeah, it’s weird isn’t it? It’s not like we sit around all day watching fashion shows. It seems like every time I take pictures of her, she’s got new material.

The only shows we watch nowadays are whatever they show on the Treehouse and other kids channels ;-)

It must be an inbuilt thing in girls – my oldest is the same…
