Photopalooza -Day 5

I like my family photos. What I like about them is that my children do not look like poster children. That's fitting because they are not poster children.

They have personalities that are strong, compassionate, wild, real and beautiful.

They are kind and considerate and strong enough to follow their own paths.

They are crazy, expressive, intelligent and perfect in a far from perfect way.

They can roll with the punches and upsets in life in a way most adults could not.

They whine, they cry, they wrestle...Good God do they wrestle. If I were trying to raise ninjas, then mission accomplished.

My co-photographers in crime.

Your boys look like they love their mama!

Great photos. As a mama of 2 boys, I stand in awe of a mama of 3!

Okay, I love kids (especially rowdy boys) and I got totally goosebumpy looking at these fotos. You look like the most awesome family ever.

Sorry I've been so absent- jeez, work is killing me. And glad to hear you're better. I really was thinking about you.

Take care sister,

Great pictures! I like photos like that, they show real people and personalities. Not just "everybody stand this way and act happy".

These guys rate as "poster children" in my book. They're perfect.

BaldyLocks said...

I think they're perfect!

Caught off guard, in the moment unposed pictures are the best.
The first 3 photos are my favorites
