Photographing Teenagers …

In a new-to-me development, Big C has reached the state in his teenagedom where he doesn't want me to take a single picture of him.  This shot was all I was able to get at the bowling alley a few weeks ago. He kept covering his cute face with his hand.


I resorted to covert photography on the way home in the car.  Seriously, I had the camera under my arm and just snapped away hoping one shot would turn out and he wouldn't notice I was taking his picture.


How am I going to document my teenager and all his awesomeness if he won't let me take his picture?

Today I have everybody home for the Martin Luther King Jr holiday and I'm wearing my mean mom hat by making them work, study and be together.

I miss my computer. I hope it's doing alright in Texas. Maybe it will bring me back some barbeque.

Any advice on photographing teenagers would be greatly appreciated!

When the braces come off, this may no longer be a problem.

I'd love to know the answer, too. I can't even photograph my 8 yo daughter.

Bribes would work.

I'm of no help, my teens loved having their picture taken.

I think the Kernal might be onto something. And I love the Queen's comment, in light of the next post about the narcassistic 40 year old!

Covert is the only way to go!
