Photo Monday – Fathers’ Day

I took the girls to a pottery painting place to make something for their father. E chose a picture frame so V had to choose the exact same picture frame. There were 3 or 4 different ones but nope. Same frame. Then, E chose colors for her frame: blue, yellow, red, and black with white pieces in it. So V got the same yellow and black. I got her to at least switch up the shades of red and blue and she added pink to her selection. Very well coordinated frames…

At first, I was going to put their school pictures in there. Those are the only recent printed pictures I have. Everything else is in digital form!  But then, I decided to leave them blank and try to get some cute father-daughter pictures. Black and white so that the colors wouldn’t compete with the frames. (And because that means I don’t need to get the girls to wear non clashing outfits.) Easier said than done. M decided to lounge on the rooftop while the girls and I looked at him like he was nuts. I did get them all together for a little while but honestly, at that point, my head wasn’t in it. I noticed a strap coming apart on her dress and it was stressing me out. We went out for gelato after dinner but it was so hot I just couldn’t ask them to stick around outside for pictures. Sometimes, no, often, I’ll have an image of how I want things to go and it just doesn’t work out.




This one isn’t black and white because it needed the color. It just did.


I hope M finds something he likes here. Otherwise, he’ll have to wait…

    These are really sweet! I do that too, where I expect things to go one way, and things feels ruined when it doesn’t work out that way. The funny thing is that the outcome is usually perfectly acceptable, but since it doesn’t match up with what was in my head, I dislike it.


    • Yes, there’s a disappointment that I couldn’t get the vision I had come to life. I am happy with the pictures I got but I still wish it had gone a little more smoothly…
