I don’t know about you, but when I was a little girl my mother always told me to make a pretty face when in front of the camera as my siblings and I always had the awful habit of acting like hooligans in our family portraits. Heck, we behaved like hooligans any moment we got.
For instance, while at church during a Primary Presentation (children’s presentation in front of congregation), my twin brother and I decided to sing as loud as we could off key and stick our tongues out on purpose to embarrass our parents. There we went along singing some children’s Jesus song with our eyes rolled back in our heads and at least one of us cracking up in front of hundreds of members of our congregation during worship services.
Yes, I am one of those insane people who to this day thinks that memory is hilarious. Sue me.
As I mentioned above, my twin brother in just about every single family portrait is making a dorky face. Reminds me of my children while on vacation last week–I have over a dozen goofy face children photos and perhaps two regular face photographs.
This is where I plead with my boys to please smile sweetly into the camera.
Then after what seemed like a gazillion snaps I gave up and went with the flow.
Someone remind me not to bring Dr Pepper on my next road trip.
