Photo Malarkey...

For our 10th Wedding Anniversary my Parents and my Grandmother gave us some money to put towards a painting to hang in our new home (once it is built!).
When we had our lovely weekend in Melbourne, a few weeks ago, we went to the Sunday Arts Market at the Arts Centre on Southbank. We discovered the most amazing portrait artist. Her name is Joanne Morris and she specialises in charcoal drawings. You can see how talented she is here and VERY reasonable priced too.

So, we decided that it might be nice to have a portrait done of our two boys.

Well now that is easier said than done. First, you need to take one decent photo of them in order to send, for her to work from....Do you think this would be good??

Mmm, what about this?? Gafaw!! Gafaw!!

Yes, the tooth fairy has been busy at our place!

Oh, this one's nice... "I love you big brother!"
Not too bad, but I really want something angelic - after all we are going to have to look at it for a very long time!
How long do you think it will take me to snap the perfect photo????
I think I had better try again tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after....
I'll let you know how I get on!
Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend.

Kathryn,
Your boys are so handsome ~ such beautiful eyes!

Best of luck snapping the perfect picture. I know exactly how difficult that can be. These days I try it with four children, three children in-law and two grandbabies!! Quite an experience!
