aw geez.

so, kyle's siblings thought that it would be really nice to take an updated group photo to give to their mother for mother's day this year. i thought it was a great idea too. now, kyle loves his mother, but hated this idea. he hated this idea because he hates getting his picture taken. this hatred is further exacerbated by the fact that his wifey (a.k.a. me) loves to take pictures and loves to have family photo shoots as often as humanly possible. i should have been better prepared for the revolt that would ensue on that fateful friday evening...but alas, I was not.
perfect, perfect, perfect, dang-it kyle!
you must click to enlarge this one.
i have no idea what he is doing,
but it is thoroughly unpleasant to look upon.
i felt like a photographer at kiddie kandids.
only, my subject was 30.
and a
perfect, perfect, perfect, dang-it kyle!
then i made the rookie mistake of asking them to
"interact naturally"
so i could get a few candids.
and this is what i got.
then, i thought
"okay, he got it out of his system,
so surely i should be able to get the
shots i need now, right?"
there was more where that came from.
much, much, much more.
baywatch glory shot
earl shot.
so then i thought,
"you know what, i am just going to get a shot
of the girls being beautious together
so at least we'll have something nice and lovely
to frame for mothers day...
but i was foiled again
and again.
Oh well,
if you can't beat em.
you know...

These are so funny! I hope you got at least one good one.

Jen Nelson said...

HAHAHAHAHA! I was afraid that's how it would go...

I freaking love your husband!

Are husbands related? I can't get Leif to make a normal face in a picture to save my life!

Nisa said...

Oh my gosh, that is funny! What a character! His mom will probably appreciate all those shots. lol!

Celeste said...

these are actually fantastic! I love the interact naturally ones, you should do a whole collage framed in a freaking expensive frame, and make kyle pay for it & see how well he does the next time around.
I want to be his friend.

Ashley Koz said...

LOL, I'm laughing my butt off. What is it with husbands and their hatred for cameras?

Ashley said...

KYLE YOU STINKER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Those would have been some GREAT shots! But yeah, I have to say that it doesn't surprise me! Kyle and his silly faces.... haha

Nikki said...

I miss you Kyle! You are the same crazy Kyle aren't you?

Hubba's Thoughts said...

That's funny, thanks for the laugh!!

nancy said...

Gosh Darn you Laura...I taught you how to liquify. So why isn't my fat-A LIQUIFIED? From now more photoshop lessons unless you make me look, skinny, beautiful and flawless in EVERY picture. And that hubby of yours, I could kill him. I am gonna put the yellow smily face over his and that is what MOM is getting. Take that you turd!!

Kevin and Lynne Smith said...

Actually, as a mom, I would love some of those silly ones. It brings back memories of the funny, silly interactions of my kids that I miss so much. Great pics Laura.

Natasha Ireland said...

ooooh so THAT would explain why he gave me the NOT SO THRILLED look and face when I snapped a pic of him at the pagaent. :)

Those are hilarious! I LOVE the two of the sisters with Kyle in the background. Those literally made me laugh...hard.
