Don't fall out of your rockin' chair

So, as most of you know, I am VERY new to the photography thing.  I am being self-taught with many books, webpages and personal advice from professionals.  I am loving every minute but I have to tell you, I have a HUGE ITCH to learn more and can't wait to get into a class.  I also have to say, I am seeing the world totally different these days.  I see simple images through a camera lens instead of the naked eye.  It is truly amazing and really can't wait to see more.  
I have photographed other kids and compared to my two, they ALWAYS seem to photograph better.  Is it because I am too picky on the images of my kids?  I want to think so, but I can never get them to smile.  Silly faces with tongues sticking out, or eyes rolled up is mostly what I get.  How can I get a great smile with eyes open?  This is delima.  
I did however get one shot of Evie smiling but only because she was fallin' out of her rockin' chair.

  1. Hi...my sister recently lost her husband and is following your blog. So I was looking at your blog. I am very sorry for your loss and I hope each day it gets a little easier...

    I also wanted to say as an amateur photographer myself, you take some fabulous shots. You definitely have a knack for photograhy :)
