It’s a bit crazy around here. 3 crazy kids and running a photography business during the busiest time of the year can be pretty overwhelming. All of you photographers out there know what I mean and are whispering ‘amen’ under your breath right? Every year, it never fails, you pull a bunch of all nighters, live off of coffee and mountain dew (I’m looking at your Jodie), plant your kids in front of the tv a little more than usual, call on family and friends to help you just make it through. Meanwhile, your husband is just hoping and praying that someday, eventually, his wife will pull herself out of the mess and pile of work and re-emerge again in some sort of recognizable form similar to the person he married. A few photographer friends have looked at me with the all knowing, are you crazy doing a fundraiser NOW?!, it’s OCTOBER!! look in their eyes. So why on earth have I added more to my plate during this time of year by doing a charity fundraiser???? I’ve asked myself that several times too. Here is the answer.
1) It’s a good cause.
2) I love it.
but most of all….
3) Because it makes me laugh. And laugh. And laugh some more. The outtakes keep me going. I mean, can’t you just hear her thoughts….”this is soooooooo humiliating…..mom…..seriously” HA! How can you look at this and NOT LAUGH?!
dear grumpy peacocks mom, don’t worry, we got a happy one too!
To all those who participated in the fundraiser, if your child provided us with an outtake, you WILL be getting more than one photo!! The much needed comedic relief between client proofing and packaging orders is keeping me going better than coffee or mountain dew ever could!
That is. The most adorable costume.
LOVE the outtake too! Man, I wish a photographer in MI would do a fundraiser like this…
i have to give a blogshout of AMEN…you are incredible for doing this right now! i’m looking up to you from the heaping pile of work…way to rock it out!
That is too cute! I LOVE the costume! (And the mad face, lol)
OMG, this is hilarious. I can totally ‘hear’ her saying that in the first pic. So funny. Keep ’em coming, I want to see more!
I was actually thinking about you last night and thinking how awesome it is of you to give your time and talent for such a great cause. I mean, it’s not like you have THREE kids 9one that has had a horrible few weeks), a husband, a full time photography biz, and yourself to take care of huh? What’s adding a fundraiser to the mix?? It just shows how selfless of a person you are and MC is so lucky t have you as a friend. May God continue to bless you and your photography business <3
Haha- love it! They are both great. Thanks, again, Lyndsay- you are amazing!
That’s my girl! She already has an attitude! Thanks a TON Lyndsay! You rock! I’m so happy we made the outtakes. 🙂
I love your work…and these pictures are absolutely great and hilarious! Keep them coming! 🙂
she is too cute! I hope my boys gave you an outtake, Lyndsay! MORE MORE MORE MORE MORE!!!!!
I am pretty sure ALL you could get outta my grumpy gus would be an out take, IF you got that much. Stinker.
These are SO adorable! Keep ’em coming!
That’s my granddaughter and yes, I did laugh out loud when I saw the first one! But a great costume:)
Oh my goodness! That first shot is just too funny! What a cute costume and what a great memory you have captured! This will make good blackmail material about 15 years from now! Love it!
I love it…so funny & and the second one is too cute!!
LOVE all the images of the kids in costume, just fabulous! You made my night.
