FIVE CHEESY PHOTOS I TOOK OF MY FIRSTBORN

   I have a couple friends who have just had their first baby and they like to post pictures of their cuties all over their facebook and instagram. Some of these pictures are really cute and others are just plain cheesy. When I see one of these "cheesy" pictures I can't help but judge a little. I mean I was never one of those first time wanna-be photographer moms right? WRONG! 

  I was browsing through old photos the other day when I came upon these lovelies of my firstborn. Turns out I was one of those moms. I guess in a way I still am, I mean I can't stop shooting and posting pictures of my kids. It's what moms do! I gotta say though I think my photography skills have improved.. at least a little. So here's the evidence... (it's ok if you laugh at me, I DID!)

1. I PUT HIM IN A BASKET

I don't think he liked it very much. 
 2. I OVER EDITED 
To my defense a pop of color in a black and white picture was totally in back in 2006! 

3. BE MY VALENTINE? 
Nope that's not a satin sheet or even a blanket it's my old gown from high school that I layed as a background. That flower? I don't even know what to say. You can bearly tell in the pic unless you look closely but I even made him wear an "I LOVE YOU" bib.

4. I TRIED TO RECREAT THIS TYPE OF POSE/PHOTO...
and FAILED...

4. I PUT A COAT ON HIM... IN THE SUMMER
I remember buying this coat on Ebay and being all excited about it!

  2. This is so funny. I took a whole bunch of "cheesy pics". There was dressed as a firefighter, on a boat fishing, with baby animals, all of it! To add to the cheese factor, I have them displayed in the house. He is going to loathe me when he gets older, I know it!

    1. LOL I think I have one of Josh fishing on a boat! So funny! I have a couple displayed around the house as well. I'm sure once our kiddos are teens they will hate them and probably even try to hide or throw them away!

  6. This made me giggle!!! I'm DEFINITELY a cheesy photo taker. I have pictures of Alea wrapped in Christmas lights! One of them actually has like 500+ repins on Pinterest believe it or not. It's really not all that great though!
