I'll start off by saying that I am not one of those photographers who is uncomfortable in front of the camera. In fact, I quite like it! When I had the opportunity to do a photo trade with Melissa, a fellow photographer, I was stoked to finally have some quality photos done with me actually IN them! I have hundreds of photos of my son, my husband, and my son and husband together...at this rate, Reid will wonder if I was even around! As much as I wish he would, my husband is not a fan of picking up the camera, even for snapshots. It's like pulling teeth, "Will, can you take a photo of us?" -insert loud sigh here- "Where is the camera?" -snap snap- "Okay, got it." (me looking at photos) "Uh...thanks, babe...." Here are a few from out session, and I just HAD to include a couple of the outtakes of Reid melting down. It was not all joy and puppy dog tails that day, but always, always worth it!
