My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Stealth Photography.

Well, when I first got a digital cameral I made a BIG MISTAKE.
I would let the boys look at the pictures on the little screen.
This may not sound like much of a mistake, but it IS! (So I'm bothering telling you so, to quote Dr. Seuss)
From that moment on, every time I pull out my camera, both boys drop whatever super cute thing they're doing and come running to me. I've tried to tell them that I won't have pictures to look at if they don't hold still long enough to take one...but they're boys. Holding still isn't in their vocabulary.

So, now it's either sneak, snap and run......

Or end up with 10,000 pictures that look like these.





Sonshine running to see the camera.




Alligator running to see the camera.

Learn from my mistake folks, never, NEVER let the kids know that they can look at super cute pictures of themselves on the camera!! Otherwise you'll have to take stealth photography lessons too!
