My five year old is an enthusiastic picture taker. She barks out orders while smiling at the screen. I have no idea where she got this from. I mostly try to take photos unobtrusively and then join back in the fun and Andrew is a picture ninja - you don't even know he took any until you're going back through them.

5-year-old: "Both of you sit on the table. Mommy! Are you chewing gum?"
3-year-old: "Are you chewing gum?"
Me: "No, I'm not chewing gum."
3-year-old: "Let me see."
Me: "Aaaaaaaah."

5-year-old: "Mommy. Take a photo by yourself. No funny faces."
Me: "OK."
5-year-old: "NO FUNNY FACES."
Me: "I didn't think I was!"

5-year-old: "OK. Take a picture with me. NO FUNNY FACES."
Me: "Geez. Alright, normal face!"

5-year-old: "Against the fence! Funny faces!"
Me: "Finally!"

That second photo is especially gorgeous! I don't think it's a funny face either!

Thanks! I agree it's a pretty flattering picture, I guess I need a tiny photographer yelling "NO FUNNY FACES!" at me all the time. Heheh.

She is! I finally signed her up for her own Instagram so she could share with friends and family. :)

You should get it! It's more versatile than I thought it was going to be.
