The Pridgen boys class pic

The boys didn't have official class pics this year at school as we were in Malaysia during the photography session. So I took matter into my own hands and thankfully, it was a nice enough day last Saturday for the boys to wear their matching short-sleeve checkered shirts!
First, was Charlie. I thought this photo came out perfect!
Of course, there were plenty of other attempts.  Some serious ones... like he's saying "Mom, seriously?"
And then, at other times he's just completely distracted:
By the way, the pumpkin that he's holding was one that he made in school.  Definitely came in handy for picture-taking!
And then, it was time to take photos of both boys.  This was quite a challenge, as you will see:
Charlie loves doing that with his mouth!  And Graham would just constantly say "cheese" but not really look at the camera.  In the meantime, Daddy is standing behind me - trying to get the boys to look at the camera by waving a big branch above my head!
Getting closer...!
After a few more attempts, we decided on this one.  I thought the boys looked good in this one!
And now, Graham's turn.  Funny enough, this was actually more difficult than Charlie!
We tried standing at first, but it didn't work out too well.  Plus, he was completely distracted with something across the street!
And then, ta da!  The last picture taken worked out the best! Thankfully!
We did try some other pics with both boys together after that but it didn't work out too well:
Although, this one could work too!
No wonder those professional photographers charge so much money for their work!
