A picture is worth more in 100 degree weather
“What?! Why are we taking family pictures again? We just took them!”
“That was in the fall, almost 8 months ago.” I said, as I looked at Preston and smiled as sweetly as I possibly could.
But, he was right.
In November, we got our first EVER set of family pictures taken and I love them! There were so many good pictures I still can’t decide which ones I want to blow up to hang on the walls. Mad props to my friend Trish for these pics!
But, you know how kids are, they keep growing up and stuff. And, if I (or some other photographer) don’t capture these moments, who will?
So, what was I to do when this photographer, that I follow on Facebook, offered a free family session? How could I possibly pass that up? I love her style. So what if she’s teaching a class and there will be lots of other people taking our pictures too (that must mean more pictures for me). More free photos. So what if it’s on an 110 degree day. I mean, I have to do this. Right? I have no choice. (;
I mean, I know Preston works in a shop that gets to over 112 degrees during the summer, for like five days a week, sometimes six.
I tried empathetically reasoning with him, “You can wear shorts. Um, if you wear these flip flops.” It’s fashion, people. Fashion.
He wasn’t buying it. “I don’t wear flip flops, or any sort of sandals! EVER!”
With another cute little smile, I let out a whiny, “Pleeeeeeease. You’ll look so cute.”
“No. Someone will probably take a picture of my feet and you’ll post it on Facebook.”
10 minutes later, we came to a semi-agreement, “I’ll wear the flip flops if you let me buy that awesome Florida State dri-fit jacket.”
And that’s what marriage is all about. I’ll give you something if you give me something. Am I right?
