Isn't it strange how we are taking a bunch of random photos and then you print one out or see it on your computer and it is like "wow". That is how I felt about this photo. Here is the story behind it.
We were doing the traditional family photo shoot on the beach. My other two kids were all into having fun posing and playing around but Austin didn't want any of it. He refused to smile when in the family photos or stand where I wanted him to and was giving big time attitude. So when we changed locations from the dunes to down closer to the water I said fine you just won't be in any photos. He went and sat on the other side of a dune and if he would catch me pointing the camera toward him he would turn away. This was one of those instances where he had turned his head away from me as I snapped a picture and I just decided oh well I'll get lots of pictures of the others. This turned out to be one of my favorite photos of all the ones we took. You would never guess the bad mood he was in.
I wanted to keep the LO simple to let the photos stand out. I used some old My Minds Eye Chalk Studio with a few pieces of Heidi Swapp Dreamy and touches of washi tape to give it a bit of color.
If you have been over to the board you probably saw my No Faces challenge that went up yesterday. I also created this page with that challenge in mind.
