Pictures With A Toddler

I love taking & having pictures. I always have a camera with me whether it's my actual DSLR or just my iPhone camera. I love snapping random pictures of Sophia during the day and adding them to Instagram. Usually, I am able to just get a decent random pictures of her doing something to post on Instagram but during the holidays I want nice pictures taken with my DSLR. The nice pictures that we can look back at years from now. The nice pictures of us all of us smiling and looking at the camera.

Well .. I didn't get too many of those this holiday. Actually, I hardly get any of those. It's so hard to get Sophia to actually sit still for a picture. I can't even get Gary in any pictures because he hates them. So when I want a family pictures it's usually just me & Sophia and it ends up being more than just "Hey, will you please take quick picture of me and Sophia." 

It ends up being me promising Sophia a piece of candy after the picture or Sophia sliding out of my arms. It ends up being fake smiles and the person taking the camera just snapping away at the whole process ...

I had to go through being hit with a princess wand & Sophia trying to bite my shoulder JUST to get the third picture. The third one isn't even the greatest. I'm smiling but Sophia has a wand in her mouth and I'm holding onto her so tight so she doesn't jump off my lap. 

We did get two nice ones with my family but luckily she looked for the first one and that's all we had to do.

So if you're ever wondering why I never have too many pictures of all of us smiling & looking at the camera, now you know. Maybe one day I'll get all these pictures that I always vision us having. Hopefully Sophia will enjoy taking and smiling for pictures soon so my vision will happen. 

Until then please enjoy my random attempts of photos with my girl & family.
