I made this attempt last Wednesday after a long day of preschool (it happened to be Macy's LAST day - which was why I felt compelled to at least TRY)...
Unfortunately, however, the odds were stacked against me from the start...
1) it was the middle of the day - high DIRECT BRIGHT SUN =BAD combo for pics.
2) the girls were tired, hungry & grumpy
3) bumble-bee's were swarming
4) it was unseasonable HOT
5) and most importantly - the field which was FULL of vibrant over-grown wild flowers for weeks prior was MOWED the day before...the NERVE! I had been driving past admiring this field EVERY day, wanting to stop the car, throw the girls in the flowers and take their pics, but we're usually in a hurry & it wouldn't work out. Well...I totally missed the boat!
here's my FAILED attempt at what I wanted to be "pretty-pics-of-the-girls-amidst-field-of-flowers" - WHAT was I thinking??
|"mom?" "seriously?" you want me to stand here in the middle of these prickly flowers?" okay- but do NOT expect a smile.|
|"now you want me to touch the stinky thing?"|
|"Are you done now?"|
|"I'm getting rocks in my crocks" hmmpph|
|big sis was playing along for a minute at least.|
|didn't take long before they were bee-lining it back to the car!|
|Diva Macy walks off the "set"|
|"You did not get this cleared with my management"|
|"Mom, I'm hungry, tired and just went potty in my pants...seriously, shut that camera OFF!"|
note to self. Don't try THAT again. :-)
