School photos

I love school photos, I really do. They're always hilarious. (See the last ones for comparison.)

Thea's wearing her favorite dress (as of last month). She picked out her outfit, and was really proud of herself.



Here's the full view:



Liam has his camera face on.






Thea apparently did not appreciate having to pose with Liam, who remains wary of the whole situation.

Cuties! And Thea does NOT like sharing her spotlight with Liam, does she?

Guess not, huh? I have a feeling that the photographer was trying a jokey "Smile for the camera!" approach. Thea does not respond to cajoling.

Awww, Liam! Poor little guy - how funny. And Thea looks so proud in her pictures. Where do you go to get them done?

The daycare arranges to have photos taken every six months or so. Lately they've always been in weird, surreal settings. I can't wait for the inevitable moonscapes.

too cute! i love thea's outfit. the girl has some goth in her, i can tell :) the look on liam's face is priceless. although the look on thea's face WITH him is priceless X10.

i'm just glad my kids aren't in the same school any longer. girlfriend is veryvery happy to be in the pic with hellboy, but hellboy does not want to have any sort of affectionate pose coming his way. no way. uh uh.

OMG, I would so make that last photo my holiday card. It's utterly brillant and will be the hit of mailbox everywhere.

Your children are incredibly photogenic, Kelly. Absolutely beautiful, and the shots are well done too. Previous shots as well; perfect shots two years running. Liam's camera face reflects a cautious nature perhaps? Thea's got it figured out, these are for posterity (whatever that is) and Mom and Dad.

Thank you! I think they're gorgeous, too, of course, but I'm not just posting the ones that make the kids look like troll dolls.

Oddly enough, Liam is anything but cautious. He leaps off high chairs without the slightest hesitation and makes friends easily, for example. Thea is actually more cautious, and likes to get the lay of the land before committing to a good opinion of someone or something.
