The Photo Gallery 158: Faces

When your children grow up they stop letting you take a million cute photos of them.
They moan, refuse to smile, look bored, stick their tongue out, pose for ONE PHOTO AND THAT’S YOUR LOT.
I adore looking back at photos like this; grubby fingers, bit of food in her teeth, shielding the sun from her eyes as I stand on the steps above her and ask ‘can I take a picture, you look lovely?’
The response these days would be: ‘no. If you like how I look then just look’.
So this is a warning to all you parents out there happily snapping away; Make the most of it and enjoy it while you can!

    So true. My three are well into that stage of refusing to be photographed. It saddens me but then I remember for the past 400 years I have been refusing to be photographed so I only have myself to blame really

    Disclaimer the number of years above may be a slight exaggeration.

    My Miss almost 7 loves getting her photo taken but she is a real face-puller!

    What a beautiful photo. I definitely still get the photo face at the moment, which is probably as good as them saying no!

    Gorgeous photo, such a natural shot. It really does get harder as they get older – although my 18mo does a good 'cheeeeese' grin already 🙂

    Such a lovely photo. My 4 year old already hates getting her photo taken!

    I completely agree, photographing teenagers is an art form in itself, if you can get a decent shot without an eye roll and a 'really??' expression then you've done well! Gorgeous pic btw

    That's a beautiful pic and a great reminder not to be so quick to put my son off when he asks me to take (the 700th) photo of him with his latest lego creation!
