I Heart Faces is a photography meme website focused on capturing faces and emotions. The site has a weekly themed photo challenge, and this is the second time I am entering the challenge.
Here is my entry for this week's theme "Autumn Beauty". I took this photo of my children in 2005, and it is one of my favorite fall images.
I had scouted around for a very colorful maple tree that had just lost leaves. I got matching shirts at Old Navy. Everyone had a shower or bath (so they could then get buried in a pile of leaves) I took the rake to the park with me. I combed the children's hair. I got the children and husband snacks and bribes. We tried to arrange the children in close proximity, hide their bodies and rake the leaves all around them.
Of course, at the time, I was hoping all four children would look angelic and perfect in at least one frame, but someone always had...
a funny expression,
or a blinking eye,
or was being silly,
or was annoyed at a sibling
or was annoyed at an itchy leaf.
And of course, they were ALWAYS moving.
Such is a photo session with my four. :)
