So BAD they’re good…

UPDATE #1 – Don’t forget, I’m still running a Beautiful Mom’s special!  The next winner for a FREE session will be announced Monday the 11th!  If you haven’t nominated your favorite beautiful momma, do it NOW!  A winner will be chosen each month until I can no longer fit them in.  AND, once the pretty gal is nominated, she stays in the running FOREVER!

You can read MORE about the special here.  I’ll accept nominations through comments here, emails, and even Facebook.  So, get busy!

UPDATE #2 – I’ve had a couple of days open up this month due to cancellations.  If you are interested in booking a session and need it THIS MONTH, shoot me an email asap!  I do still have a few openings in June, but they are going quick!

Okay, enough with all the housekeeping around here.

So, before all this crazy rain hit, I was trying to do better at taking photos of MY kids here at home.  They were outside playing on the swings, digging in the dirt, and doing fun boy things when I decided to grab my camera and head out the door.  The problem was…I forgot to check my settings before shooting the pics.  It took me a while to realize the settings were off.

Believe it or not, the first couple of photos turned out decent…I mean who can resist THIS face?

outlaws_0001-bwor THIS one?

outlaws_0013Even with the shorts and cowboy boots, they are adorable.  By the way, I had no control over that.  Josh has coerced them brainwashed them into thinking they should ONLY wear cowboy boots to play outside.  Well…Before it wasn’t a problem considering it was WINTER and jeans with boots are kinda neat.  BUT, now it’s warming up and shorts are coming out and they continue to BATTLE with me over the boots.  Lord help me.  Can you imagine what they’ll look like in 10 years!

Alright alright…I tend to get a little sidetracked!

I was snapping photos and having fun, not paying much attention to the camera settings when WES started dancing.  I had turned the music on in our golfcart and he LOVES music.  Normally, he wiggles a little and then finds something else to do.  BUT, this time, it was a full-fledged DANCE FEST!  I was SUPER excited to have caught it on camera and I couldn’t wait to get a look at the pics.  That’s when I realized….THE CAMERA FOCUS POINTS WERE ALL JACKED UP!  Yikes!!

danceBut, here’s the thing…He was moving so much there’s no telling what would’ve been in focus anyway.  The truth is…I LOVE these shots even with the out-of-focus issues.  They are SO him.  He tends to be a little fuzzy most times anyway.  HEE HEE!

I even got a fuzzy photo of Ty…

outlaws_0033If you look closely, you’ll notice the back of his head is more in focus than the rest of him.  Pretty funny, huh.

The main point of my bad photos post, though, is to not be afraid to celebrate the BAD photos!  Sometimes the bad ones ARE the good ones!  It just adds a little character (as my boys would say)…

    Wes has gotten so tall! He’s lost that little cubby leg look! Such cute boys!
