My brother asked me for some photographs of their kids to put in his yearly calendar. Trey got braces and glasses (on the same day!) this year, so he wanted some that were more early year vintage. I went through hundreds of photos from our last visit and saw more “do not take my picture” faces than I could believe! Somehow kids know how to sense the exact moment when the shutter will be pressed… and then fight it.
But I did find one where he was genuinely smiling and actually looking at the camera. It must have been before I made fun of him for looking like Justin Bieber with the hoodie, because it was all down hill from there.
