My Wife Just Said… #148

“Turns out my 187th attempt to capture a cute “brothers” photo to send to @howtobeadad this morning is actually my favorite.” –Avara


Photographing children is pretty much the best, right? Yeah. It’s as easy as photographing Bigfoot playing with a hulu hoop made of angry badgers.

It’s truly amazing how much effort it takes to get them to look at or, dare I say, smile at a camera. Kids are basically human versions of bouncing pieces of atoms exploding from the sun. It’s hard to predict what will happen with a couple of brothers.

Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in getting the right photo that we misplace getting the real shot. This is the photo I would want on my desk and my wife captured it perfectly. She has an eye for these things.

Just not so much with husbands… 😉

  1. Love it 🙂 To me, the best photos of my 2 year old Little Mister are the ones where his true character are shining through!

    Wonderful picture!! And very adorable boys. My favorite pictures of my girls are those where they are caught laughing so hard at each other. SO much better than a posed smiling picture.

    Dude this is perfect.

    We have never paid to have professional photos done of our kids to display on our walls. Everything in frames is something REAL, similar to this very shot!

  5. As a pro photographer let me assure you: just keep snapping away (I USED to say “shooting” until I heard myself, one day, tell my wife I was going over to the local middle school to “shoot some children” – haven’t used the verb in relation to photography since!).

    I used to do wedding, bat and bar mitzvahs. When I used film, I probably captured 150 images. When everything shifted to digital (where you can throw away the 1s and 0s of those images you don’t like), I started capturing 1,200 – 1,500.

    Keep snapping away: you’ll get it!
