Jethro and Hazel

So I saw a picture on pinterest and suddenly I had to do a photoshoot with Jethro and Hazel.  And I had to get glasses for Hazel, and a vest for Jethro--which my sewer-extraordinaire sister Kami made, and I had to get a blue background (I found a curtain for 3 francs at the second-hand store that was perfect) and bribed Jethro and Hazel, and I waited for the perfect day to do it.  All because of seeing one picture on pinterest.  But I love how it finally turned out--and really, why not have a photoshoot with my oldest two?  It was fun!

However, after all the prep, I got a little too impatient and I decided to take the pictures on their lunch break (I am not kidding when I say that when it is not rainy and gray around here you have to seize the moment!), which I KNEW would not make for good pictures because of the lighting, but I thought if I took them to a good shady spot it would work out, but then it just did not turn out the way I had pictured, and obviously I HAD a picture in my head.  Also, getting the white balance right against the blue backdrop was nigh-on impossible, which killed some of my pictures (and why sometimes the skin tone is green and sometimes it's pink...grrr).  So then we had to try again in a different time and location, and it worked out better (though still far from perfect).  Here they are.







I had searched through a bunch of jokes and typed out the best ones, and this is when I told one that was quite funny.  Where does the president keep his armies?  In his sleevies.  I love these pictures.

This is when Hazel punched Jethro.  It was funny.

Hee hee.

Then I tried to take some pictures of just Jethro (he has a hard time smiling naturally and says his face starts hurting ;)  ), so Hazel stole his mp3 player.

And then we went home.
