I ♥ Faces - Week 18 ▌ Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


UPDATE: To See My Most Recent Hilarious Outtakes Post, CLICK HERE!LAUGHTER! Who can live without it?! I certainly can't, and in my line of work, motherhood, it's plentiful and always welcome. Two funnies got me giggling today: The Boy, sitting in his car seat on the way home from church, is studying his arm and announces "Mommy, I have some GLUE on my FUR!" Hmmm, well, that confirms my suspicion that I am raising wild animals... And the second, my senior moment, we were at my in-laws this evening enjoying a delicious Japanese meal prepared by my amazing, talented, mother-in-law, and a neighbor stopped over, sweet little 11 year old girl. She announced that she would be having a sleepover party and being a child of the 80's I asked her if they would play "MASH" (the game where you make a list of boys you want to marry, what sort of job you'll have and whether you will live in a Mansion, Apartment, on the Street, or House). She hadn't a clue so I sat the preteen down for a demo. We were in the middle of her fortune telling when she announced that she wanted to marry Joe, from The Good Charlotte Band, and I confessed that I had never heard of them, to which my DH says "oh I know them!" and I say "I guess I'm not up on my music", to which my little teeny-bopper chuckles and says "It's a young thing..."

Need a chuckle of your own? Check out these sweet family pics from my archive and then head on over to I Heart Faces to see who has the last laugh!
ADULT ENTRY:

CHILD ENTRY:




NOTE: That is the same baby, sitting on Pop Pop's knee screaming, and one year later, almost to the date, cackling with laughter. It's amazing how much relationships can grow and change! It was such an enormous gift as a mother to witness the bonding between my sons and their Grandfather during the 15 months that my husband was deployed; it was so important that in their father's absence, they were still able to feel a "father's" love.

Your adult entry is great with all those different emotions showing! I love the kid entry, too. It really is amazing how much those little ones change and grow in a year!

Annette said... at May 11, 2009 at 5:45 AM

Love the screaming baby! I must say, most of my family photos have a screaming baby in it. Makes them all the better, in my opinion.

Dianna said... at May 11, 2009 at 5:47 AM

Those are both great photos.

rowas said... at May 11, 2009 at 5:55 AM

I love that first picture!! Totally amazing. I love how the kids look so upset while the adults are hysterical. Family is wonderful isn't it?

Michelle said... at May 11, 2009 at 6:35 AM

That first picture cracked me up! Adults laughing, babies crying! lol Isn't that the way it is!? Excellent job!

Nell@SheSnaps.com said... at May 11, 2009 at 7:14 AM

HAHA - that is exactly what I thought my shot looked like ... well, the story on the blog will explain that.

I love that shot of all those men and little dudes laughing (okay, exact for the two little ones). Makes me giggle!

Foursons said... at May 11, 2009 at 11:46 AM

I LOVE the first one w/the crying babies and laughing adults. Priceless! And the story to go along w/both is great. Good job!

I just love your adult entry. Classic. Some days can be like that but the only way we can make it is if we can keep a smile on our face!

Becca said... at May 11, 2009 at 1:31 PM

I LOVE the first one - cracked me up :-) I mean, they are both amazing!

Super great adult shot :) I love that half the crowd is screamin' and half is laughing!

Drea said... at May 11, 2009 at 5:43 PM

Your adult entry is awesome. I love how the kids are screaming while the adults are cracking up! Shows how real life is :)

Kimber said... at May 11, 2009 at 7:51 PM

Great shots, I love the first one. It's so true to life.

Carrie said... at May 11, 2009 at 9:01 PM

I love group picture! Some laughing, some crying but it is all very real. Capturing "real" moments is what photography is all about and you have surely done a fantastic job!

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said... at May 11, 2009 at 10:31 PM

I LOVE the first photo! I love how everyone is laughing and then the baby is screaming! I just think it is absolutely adorable! How fun! thanks for sharing

Missesprincess said... at May 11, 2009 at 11:37 PM

We called our grandfather Pop Pop as well...the child entry warms my heart. Beautiful image.

Laura said... at May 12, 2009 at 4:32 AM

Your adult entry is hilarious, love it, great catch

Julie Rivera Photography said... at May 12, 2009 at 6:53 AM

Your first image really struck a chord with folks! And that means it is a great picture that many can relate to. It would be funny to print these together as a storyboard...the developing relationship between boy and grandfather...

Karli said... at May 12, 2009 at 8:55 AM

At least dad is having a good time! :)

Melinda said... at May 12, 2009 at 4:42 PM

Amazing entries. You captured some really beautiful and fun moments.

Sarah said... at May 12, 2009 at 5:31 PM

Hahahah! I just L-O-V-E the adult entry...with the adults laughing and kids crying! My fave...and the kiddo entry is very sweet. BTW, I've never been here before and I wanted to compliment you on the adorable Banner! So cute!

Carebear said... at May 12, 2009 at 8:48 PM

These are both fantastic (big surprise). I can't NOT smile when I look at them! And how cool is it to have your little one featured this week at two different points in his babyhood! Glad he turned his frown upside down for Grandpa in the second shot!

Oh, and LOL at the "it's a young thing". I had a teenage cousin visit from the East Coast last summer and she talked me into taking her to a Good Charlotte concert. Two hours of my life I'll never get back. It was standing room only so my feet were KILLING me by the end of it, my ears were ringing, and I was covered in other people's sweat. I guess I'm too old to get it anymore....

jen said... at May 13, 2009 at 7:32 AM

i'm loving the adult entry ... hilarious.

Shannon said... at May 13, 2009 at 4:19 PM

Oh baby curls! I love that second one but both or wonderful.

Amanda said... at May 14, 2009 at 9:29 AM
