A Retrospective of Self Portraits



This weeks You Capture is Photographer's Choice.

Hmmmm.

I was shuffling through my photos from this week and noticed I sure do take a lot of self portraits of myself and the G man. Most of them get trashed, because they are ABSOLUTELY HIDEOUS. But, every once and a while, I'll snap a gem.

So, I've decided to do a retrospective of G and I in self portrait. Some are from archive (sorry, Beth, it's for the sake of a story - please forgive me!). Some are new. Some are from today, even. So, in no particular order...

We love Eskimo kisses...


Putting our heads together. *



Mommy is always kissing me.


Whoopee!


OMG. My mommy is the biggest dork. When I can talk better I'll tell her she looks ridiculous in aviators. *

Sheesh, mom. Enough. But your glasses are better, at least.

Snuggles!

Nothing like a sunny day at the park.

Two seconds later, he pushed me away.


Don't babies smell delicious?


How cute is that chubby tummy (his, not mine!)?


Contemplative. Not sure what we're looking at, but it must be really cool.


There are several more, but Blogger is letting me know I'm done. No more photos on this post! I think I've gone a little nuts here. Oh well.

For more captures, head on over and visit Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry.

* These ones are new!

I love it! I've never really thought of taking pictures of myself with the kids. Maybe I'll have to try that and see what turns out! You have the sweetest little boy there!

These are all so wonderful! I love that you take so many pictures of yourself and your boy. You and Beth have inspired me to take more self-portraits (with the kiddos no less) starting tomorrow.

Your son will treasure those photos when he's old. Even the ones with the aviators :)

Lovely captures. You'll be happy in later years that you have the pictures of yourself with the kids. I was always the one taking the pictures and I have very few of me with the kids.

I LOVE THIS. I never take any pictures of myself. This is a great reminder to do so.

Stefany said...

Great shots.

I have to take a ton of those self-shots in order to find a single one I can deal with. ha!

Andrea said...

I love the pictures. At least you'll never wish there were more pictures of you and G when he gets older!

Vanessa said...

What a great series. I can never get good self-portraits, they just never look good.

Prairie Lady said...

That was great. Thanks for sharing
