Rutledge is great to photograph when he is on his own. But trying to get a decent family photo is becoming increasingly hard! I have found that timing is key. However, sometimes, you just have to make things happen! In these circumstances, when its past Bubba's naptime and he is grumpy, I have found that the "tickle" and "whispering" tactics are best!
Here we are:) I am performing the back rib tickle!
Look at that goofy Bubba!
Then, Bubba tried to tickle me!
So, I had to tell him a secret.
He listened for a little while:)
Then, we tried a family photo. But, Bubba wouldn't look at the camera.
So, we switched up and Daddy held Bubba and I had to do the "lean in" pose. It still wasn't workin' for us! We had to change locations.
So, we put Bubba on a tree limb and it seemed to amuse him:)
I don't know what we were all looking at.
This is the best one! Bubba looks moderately happy and both Mama and Daddy are pleasantly smiling:)
I love this one as well, even though Bubba isn't looking forward. Its still cute!
Like I said before, taking pics of Rutledge is easy. Taking family pics is not. I get really excited when we get a few good ones and I wanted to share!
