While Other Photographers Say How Hard It Is To Photograph Their Own Children …

It always makes me chuckle to see blog posts from other photographers commenting on how hard it is to photograph their own children and all the great stories about how the sessions never go as planned. Since I have no children of my own, poor Baxter always seems to be my test subject. I was trying out some lenses and needed to borrow him as my “model”. He happily came upstairs to see what I wanted, but I think he *knows* it’s going to be trouble for him when I drag out the camera bag. In an instant he went from sitting dog to laying down and he refused to look at me! My silly guy was just not in the mood for his camera time. Good thing I was just testing my equipment and didn’t expect much from him! While I was looking though the photographs this image made me laugh – he looks bothered that he had to take part in modeling for me. I can only image what my photographer friends go through while they photograph their own children!!

    I can totally see that “over it mom” look!! Perfect!

  • Oh my gosh! This is hysterical! Yes, that’s the look I get from my kids! “Are we done yet?” “Do we have to do this now?”

    haha, that expression looks just like so many of the photographers kids (including my own) that are sick of being the test subject. Great capture!
