I have felt pretty disconnected from anything photography-related lately.  This is quite ironic due to some offers I have had behind the scenes over here.

I have been swamped with accounting work (Um. Woo?) and the kids have had crazy hair in serious need of a cut.  Well, the boys have. It will be quite a while before Miss Emily needs a trim.

The wacky hair, in addition to the plethora of boogs running from all three of their noses have not made me want to snap many photos of them.

There is also the fact that IT IS PICKIN’ COLD. I prefer natural light, but outdoor photos are so not happening right now.

Then I remembered! I have a fancy flash!

I accosted my kids in the bathtub.

Pretend that Emily is wearing a cute bikini top that is a little more shapely and not so boxy.

I seriously need to take a Photoshop course.

I. Have. No. Words.

Mr. Graham:

E & G:

Um, Emily?  You have a little somethin’ somethin’ on your chin.

She wiped it off.

These two?

Are pretty enamored with each other.  She adores her big brother and he dotes on his baby sister.  He tells me all day long how cute/sweet/great his sister is.

I think she’s neat too.

In addition to being a softie, Graham has his own unique personality.

That about sums it up.

Mr. Nathan likes to make faces when I pull out the camera.

That one is pretty mild.  He usually incorporates flailing arms and loud shrieks. It is awesome.

These photos bring me pure joy, apart from the fact that I took photos for the first time in days.  The main reason being…

I totally look forward to tormenting them when they are teenagers. With the fact that they used to bathe together. While NAKED.

I will probably throw in that they used to drink milk FROM MY BOOBIES.

They will likely be uncomfortable, embarrassed and utterly mortified.

It is going to be all sorts of awesome.

    I’ve been in a photography drought lately too. No idea why.

    Milk from your boobies…heh. (Yes, I am a 12-year-old boy. Why do you ask?)

    That is hilarious. I remember when my 7 year old figured out that he was breast-fed. It was hilarious. He said “you mean like a baby cow?”

    Oh yes damn you… I am so going to be singing that song all day long. Wicked girl.

    Those pictures are adorable! I love bath pics. I’m trying to get some cute ones of the kids so I can put them up in the bathroom with ‘splish splash i was taking a bath’ on the wall between them. :-) I understand about the ickies and the lack of wanting to photograph.

    I guess work is work, right? :-)

    There are pictures of my sis and I bathing together. Whenever they get pulled out to show new boyfriends or something I tell the story of the time when my sister pooed in the tub and I screamed GET ME OUT! NOW! She doesn’t like that story. ;-) There are photos of the two of us and our DOG in the tub. How is that sanitary? I keep asking my Mom and she has no answer. Ha!

    These photos are adorable and much later will be great material for embarrassment!

    I need a fancy flash, as you know, the one on my camera is like a nuclear explosion. Any advice for websites that sell camera equipment?

    My finace has a bath photo from when he was a kid with his two sisters and of course I had to tease him mercilessly about how he would bathe with his sisters. I don’t have any bath photos and have been informed that most people do, i guess their parents thought ahead about the blackmail possibilities as well.

    Soap beards are the best. Even though I have countless photos of my kids with soap on their faces or with crazy shampoo mohawks, I truly don’t think I can have too many!
