picture me {im}perfectly.bossy

if you know me, 
you know that i tend to be bossy.
quite bossy.

i’m the oldest of four children, 
so i think it comes naturally to me.
in every circumstance but one.

when i take photos of people 
other than my children
i tend to be the exact opposite of bossy.
i become laissez fair.
i know. 
do you even believe it?
hardly, i bet.

but having that mellow attitude 
isn’t really good for me 
when i am taking photos.

i know that being bossy isn’t the best thing.
but it really does come in handy,
and for me, it’s when i am taking photos
of people other than my children.

for instance, 
my sister and her husband came for a visit 
and brought along my little nephew, baby E. 
so of course, we had to schedule a beach shoot for them.

and my bossyness just came out naturally. 
typically, when i take photos of those besides my children
i feel very anxious and intimidated
but not with my sister!
just ask her.

i was as bossy as bossy can be.

but it worked because i think she’s used to it.
and you know what? 
she responded really well to it. 
and i think her husband 
just rolled his eyes and went along with it. 

but in real life, 
i do tend to be too bossy.

so be sure to picture me {im}perfectly.

how cute is this shot?
so cute.

i had such an awesome time 
shooting them.

and i can’t wait until they come and visit
so we can do it again.

this was the very first time i got to meet 
sweet little E.

and i soaked up every little moment i could 
with that darling baby boy.
