Short Photographer

Little Buckaroo has been using my camera to take some pictures to enter in the county fair photography contest. So, before we went into town (we sound so rural) to film a morning show about one of the bazillion things I get myself into, he asked to take a picture of me.

I am usually the one taking the pictures so there are not many of me, as compared to all the ones with the Little Buckaroo's and Big Buckaroo. Our grandchildren one day will not know that I was ever less than 60 with white hair as they will know me then, now wait, Miss Clairol will probably still be visiting every 6 weeks, so the white hair thing might be an exaggeration.

So, I gave in and let our 4 ft 5 inch child take my photo. I give you that bit of info because it may explain photo 1.

Hey, at least it is a good shot of my beloved boots.

So, I then asked, "did you get my whole body in the picture or just my face?" His reply, "um, not sure I got either, can you squat down so you will fit in the picture?"

I went into a lesson on framing your picture in photography at this point, it lasted about 3 minutes. He then said, "oh, I get it. Now, can you squat down now, it would make framing the picture easier."

I gave in because 1-I was sweating like Paula Deen when she runs out of butter, and 2- Littlest Buckaroo was in the chicken coop trying to catch a chicken so I could hold it in the picture (yea, that was going to happen).

I hope some of his fair photos turn out better, and thankfully my friend Nikki at Delta Ridge Photography will be here next month for a visit and can take a picture of me for our grandkids.

Plus, she can photoshop ten years and 20 pounds off me hopefully.

You look great! Although the first picture was a little off:-) Now I'm getting ready for a mommy break tonight (although it is shopping for her) but it will be all by myself.

Lovely picture Stephanie! Looks like he may get the hang of it pretty quick. :)

They're both pretty cute pictures. :) My 4-year-old's always borrowing our camera to take pictures of the ceiling, the wall just past our heads, and the rug. He claims they're all supposed to be pictures of us. I guess he has some more practicing to do to become as skilled as your kiddo!
