Beau is pretty picky.

No really. Even at the tender age of 14 months, he’s well aware of what he likes and dislikes.

And photo shoots, for the moment, fall solidly into the “dislike” column. :-)

That said, Stacey and I are notorious for our stubbornness when it comes to “getting the shot.” And while Beau presented his share of challenges for our first “official” portrait session with him, we loved every minute of it. He’s our first nephew … and perfect in so many ways. I’d probably be a little camera shy too if I were him, so we’ll let him off the hook this once.

To be honest, he’s got an amazing smile. He literally smiles with his entire body … and when you see it, you can’t help but smile back! It showed up a couple of times during our session, thanks in part to a horse name Skipper and some well-timed tickles from mom. :-)

Beau, we are so grateful and blessed to be your aunt an uncle, and I know you’ve got plenty of great smiles and giggles stored up for us. In the meantime, we’re just as happy with your ridiculous frowny face, excessive drooling, and distaste for photo sessions. :-)

Here’s a couple of our favorites …

And some of Beau’s best outtakes … with permission from mom of course. :-) Attempt No. 1 on the cool door …

Stupid fountain … grrr….

“If I don’t let my feet touch the ground, they can’t set me down…”

Attempt No. 2 on the cool door … and pine straw …

“Dad, please just take me home …” :-)

So that’s the highlights from our first of thousands of pictures we’ll shoot with our dear nephew Beau. And if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, make sure and see our post from a month ago about Beau’s adoption homecoming.
