Posing with Theodore Roosevelt - WordFUL Wednesday



Gone are the days of taking adorable photos of my son. I use to be able to get perfect shots of his cuteness and smiles. Now? I'll be lucky to get him sitting still in a photo. I can forget about the cute poses and smile. Now I get him making faces and ....well....being a 4 year old little boy.

For example. These photos were taken during our recent Family Tour of the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Hall at American Museum of Natural History. As you can see, my son was more interested in having fun then posing for a photo. *sigh*

I have to give credit to the photographer. He did try to get us a perfect shot. He was a patient man. LOL

How do you get your children to take a good photo?

Here’s my Wordless Wednesday. Stop by, if you can, and share your thoughts.

Great photos. You little boy is adorable

Alison said...

What a great shot I love that. I should take the boys to the AMNH soon!

Dana said...

Those are cute pics!

Dee said...

LOL! These are great! I am so envious of my friends who have kids that actually sit and smile for pictures!!

Oh yeah! I know. It took me 2 hours to get 1 decent pic of my kids for Christmas!!

One way I get them to sit still is by telling them I will stop if they give me their best smile. Most often than not, it works!

I bet that was fun! I love history & museums!!

Mostly I take candid shots - this way I don't HAVE to get them to look! :D

Maryann said...

sounds like a nice photographer and a great subject.

My four year old is like me, great with the camera. My seven year old just refuses to smile because he chipped his front tooth and doesn't want to show it so he always has some goofy smile on his face but regardless I love seeing my boys any way I can!

Crazy poses are the best ones of them all. Love the pics.

Great pictures, we posed with a fake Lincoln at Gettysburg and it was pretty amusing.

At least he was in the picture. My friend's little one is almost 4 and he has a complete melt down when a camera is around.

I have one kid that will always give me good pics and the other that just makes a butt out of himself. I actually like the silly ones best because they are fun and give me memories.

Ha! Enjoy that for the next 8 years :) Those are just as memorable and cute though!

My 3 year old does that, too. At least they make for some good giggles!
