So I sat down and was going to post a "Many faces of Blaze" blog of random shots I have taken throughout the summer when I realized something serious.
There was only one face of Blaze this summer. Due to an unfortunate disease known as PCS he was unable to smile in front of a camera.
I know that there are probably many of you with questions on PCS so I put together a little Q&A for you.
Q- "What is PCS?"
A- PCS is an illness that stands for Photographer's Child Syndrome.
Q- Is my child at risk?
A- Unfortunately PCS is all too common. If you are a photographer or even an active hobbyist chances are you or someone you know has already been affected by PCS.
Q- What are the symptoms of PCS?
A- Lack of eye contact, refusal to smile, same look for every picture... running away and screaming if a camera is seen are all signs of PCS. Also if you hear your child saying, "No more pictures" as they are sleeping or refusing to have anything to do with cheese this could be a sign they have contacted PCS.
Q- Is PCS contagious?
A- I am happy to report that PCS is not contagious as my younger son has been PCS free for 3 years now.
Q- Is there a cure for PCS?
A- Unfortunately no cure has yet been found. There are temporary remedies such as bribes that may ease you through this period.
Below are some examples to show you what PCS might look like. Now this was not a serious case so remember PCS comes in many forms.
Starting to see a little crack in his facade here.
In all seriousness what I love most about these pictures are his eyes (ok and his lips..I am a little jealous of his perfect lips!). Blaze has always had a little bit of a lazy eye. We thought his having glasses might correct it but they weren't really so he has started to have to wear a patch this summer for six hours a day and I already see a huge difference.
Oh and just so he doesn't have any of you fooled...this is the Blaze I know and love.
