Shooting babies

That's photographing babies, not using babies for target practice. Have you experienced this lately? Do you have any tips? 'Cuz I was having one heckuva time with it today. Monsieur Henry and I traveled to Newberg to hang out with Cousin Amels. Naturally, I thought it'd be a great way to get some cute pics of the kids together that we can torment them with later in life. Our photo session began when I set them next to each other on the couch and proceeded downward from there.
One: Hi Henry. Hi Amels. Wait. Is that my len's cap? How'd you get that?

Two: Great, now Henry is staring at his imaginary len's cap.

Three: Henry get your baby behind back in the frame.

Four: It's anarchy! Babies on the loose!

Five: Can you both look at me, please?

Six: Amels! Where are you going?

Seven: Directionless Amels and Wonderboy

Many thanks to Brother Nick, Megan, and Cousin Amels for letting Henry and I come out to play today. We had a lot of fun, no one got hurt, and for a small window of time both kids were napping and I got to continue reading New Moon, the sequel to Twilight.

I love the one with the imaginary lens cap--I really thought he was holding another one.

And I've said this before, but your niece looks freakishly like my friend's daughter. The resemblance is eerie.

Perhaps best explained by the appearance of doppelgängers?

Yeah, good luck with this.

I bribed Liam to stay sitting for a picture by showing him a brownie and saying, "First picture. Then brownie." He didn't smile, but he sat there for about 5 clicks, then got up said "ALL DONE" and took that brownie away from me. =)
