1, 2, 3, SMILE!!!

I tried to take photos of my children and create a Father's Day gift for my husband and both of our fathers.  What a challenge!  I have taken pictures of each of the kids in the last year and they are pretty good models.  However, (!!!)  trying to get all three of them to look at me and smile with a genuine smile was SO difficult!  If I think I might want to be a photographer some day, I need to work on my getting-people-to-smile skills!!

The resulting shots are actually somewhat amusing (at least to me.)  So much so, that I submitted one of them to Pioneer Woman's Funny Face contest.  She didn't choose my shots, but that's okay - there are SO MANY wonderful shots submitted.  You should check out her page if you don't already!

Here are some of the ... um... interesting shots that I got from the session.

Unfortunately, this is the best picture of the youngest one... I wish my photoshop skills were good enough to merge the faces on one photo...


In the end, I wound up using the very first shot I took.  How nuts is that??  Here is the finished product as it is at the moment.  I edited it on Picnik which is a good site to use in a pinch.

Have a happy (and funny faced) Monday!
