Picture Day

Well, we jumped right in. Day 3 included formal pictures at school.

I took a few in the back yard to prepare. My once most difficult child is now climbing the ranks to most agreeable. Smiley Jack.

Lainey? Notsomuch.

I typically refrain from posting a million pictures of the same pose, but I bypassed my rules in order to capture the essence of our darling daughter these days.

"Laine. Just turn toward me and smile, honey."


"We could actually be done at this point. Please just smile. ONE smile."

Tongue touching her nose. Nice.

Sarcasm at age 3? Yes, ma'am!

Tried a different location.

Didn't work.

OK, the trellis.

What the hell is this all about?

No idea.

The closest I got to a decent photo.

A new signature pose for both of them.

One last attempt. I give up.

Let's cross our fingers that the professional ones at school turn out better!

Back soon with birthday deets. Pa is in town and we're loving it!

This reminds me of our photo session and Bia - must be a three year old thing! You are not alone Casey!

So, I guess you're not signing them up with an agency out in CA, huh?

Negavite, ghost rider. I wouldn't make it through a session and I'd hate to crush a photographer's dreams in one quick attempt with my daughter. It might just push someone over the edge.

Monica said...

These pictures crack me up! They are simply priceless.

Pam Bowers said...

Wow. I would feel so frustrated. Good for you for keep trying. Her funny poses are hilarious anyway. It will make for a great wedding slide show some day. lol

The Soladay Family said...

Freaking hysterical. Lainey and Jack are quite a team. Love the commentary.

Jodee said...

Oh my goodness! These pictures are a hoot and adorable too! I completely feel your pain! My kids never cooperate for pictures! Some day we will laugh!

Becca Jane said...

Haha, too cute! I know how that feels! She's a doll, seriously.

Coco said...

That picture of Jack alone is perfection!!

Unknown said...

You're in for it when she's a teen--can we say, sassy?

LOVE love her dress, my daughter would love it!

Kristen said...

Oh. My. Goodness.
HAbahahahaavbdhahsahaha!! <---- Me laughing me ass off.

Lainey just made my night. For reals. It kinda sucked and after this... smiling *unlike her* from ear to ear.

Awesome post Case!

Dee Stephens said...

Pa is always in town! that's awesome!

The Rand's said...

Awww, sweet Jack! Love his smile.

LC sarcastic? I wonder where she gets that from? Because you and Blake aren't sarcastic! HA!

Happy Birthday to Carter! Can't believe he's 10!

Impulsive Addict said...

Those are HILARIOUS! Cute kids. I kinda want them. Willing to sell them for the right price?

I see your decking the halls before Thanksgiving. So you're one of "THOSE" people...

starnes family said...

Simmer down, IA. Christmas officially starts this weekend......when Caroline arrives in California. Lots going on!

Brittny said...

Now if she had said, "NO! Me too grumpy!" then I would say it's b/c you are taking Sophie's picture. She can be really easy one day and then "too grumpy" the next. Kids are funny and ours prove that all the time!

Sara said...

These are great!! That first one of Jack is precious.
And I love Lainey's sarcastic smile. So sweet looking but you know she's really just being a total sass. Love it!

Heather said...

That pic of Jack is darling! Lainey... oh my.

The Lenzers said...

Jack has a haircut again? He is too cute. LC is too, but in a girly/casey kind of way. I can totally picture you like that as a kid!

Dawn said...

LOL! These are all just adorable!
