And the award for most photogenic goes to...

Keaton?? I demand a recount.

At work I have this picture below as my screen saver.



Adorable right? My friend commented on how cute Keats was( no argument there) and how he was the perfect age for pictures, probably so cooperative. Now I could have said "Yes, he is such an angel" and anyone would believe it looking at the above picture. Instead I just laughed and laughed.

The truth is, Keaton is so hard to get a good picture of. Reason is-he is a comedic little ham.

I present to you exhibit A. (A disclaimer to the jury- these are all onboard flash snapshots, yet they best represent what I am about to show you)



This is a typical 15 minutes of Keaton. Notice how he is all over the place. Spinning in circles, making mean face, uninterested face, getting in your face face. I could go on.

But perhaps the best example of what I mean is "The Klingon Face"



Yes this is the same little boy as the first picture. How he twists his face like that, I have no idea.

The resemblance is uncanny.





So while I think my little boy is the cutest in the world, (I really, really do! He is super handsome)I would like it know that I work hard for adorable pictures. I rest my case.

Oh and for the record, I absolutely love every shot above. They crack me up just as much as he does.

I'm loving that Star Trek sneaked into your blog. Too bad it's "Next Generation"... but at least it's Trek!

I would be happy with your 'out-takes' with my kids. We really do have to work for the "good" shots though, don't we. Keaton is so animated - and a Trekkie at heart, so it only stands to reason that it spills over into his every day expressions.

He is adorable! I love the outtakes, such a fun personality.

HLIP said...

That is such a great collection. He is really working that hat!

Very cute.

He is ADORABLE! And I agree with Nicki on the out-takes!

I have a pic of my boy when he was a baby that I went to Olan Mills or some department store studio or something. The picture is great, he's smiling, happy. I worked my BUTT off for that picture, and I didn't even take it. But just stopping him from sobbing hysterically while being photographed was work enough!

Too cute!!
His expressions are so funny! He will love these images to look back on in the future!

ROTFL!!! I totally see the Klingon, even without the additional cheat photo. It's all in the forehead, and that intense expression. At least he doesn't SPEAK Klingon (one can only hope!!) I love the way little boys mug for the camera. I know it's frustrating, but down the road you will love these.

i absolutely love that first image, they're all cute but that one is awsome :)

Samantha said...

Oh, those are all so cute! Once in a while, we all get lucky and get those "perfect pose" shots. But the crazy ones are just as much fun - if not more so! - yours totally show off Keats' wonderful personality!

OMG he gets cuter and cuter. I love the many faces of Ket. After trying and trying with my boys I just take what I get because they are all over the place also.

Reds said...

Those are the cutest out-takes! He is so expressive!
