I Heart Faces | Play-Dana Suggs


“Take a pi-cher of me!”

I hear those words a lot around my house.

My kids are accustomed to seeing my camera and having it in their faces all the time.

Especially Brooklyn who literally has grown up with it, and everyone is familiar with her face because I use her for almost every photography contest with I Heart Faces.

Yes, I am ‘THAT’ Mom.

But with the adoptions of our 3 newest children, I can FINALLY use new (very beautiful) faces for the contests.

And I LOVE to take pictures of them.

I’ve also had to learn to lose some of my control on photographing CLEAN children as well.  I had a death grip on that rule, and I hated to let it go.  But, having 4 boys now, if I didn’t lose that dumb rule, I’d have a LOT less photos of my children. ;)  I have a couple that literally come out of the bath tub dirty sometimes.  Dirt is just attracted to them!

So, all of that to say, when I saw the theme for May for I Heart Faces, I knew the photo I had to use.

My 2 youngest, very handsome, dirt-magnets very much love to be dirty.

One also loves to be nekkid.  But that isn’t for THIS theme at all.  HAAAA!

But how could you resist those faces?

Even if they are dirty. ;)

    They are absolutely as cute as can be : )
    I laughed out loud about the love of being naked.
    That would be a very special theme at I heart faces, right?
    Naked. Can you even imagine the entries we would get?

    Dana, they are so cute! My boys used to throw sand, and I would get so aggravated at the mess in the tub when they were getting cleaned up. Now I’d give anything to have a photo just like yours. Sand and all! Enjoy them!!
