The Turtle Photo Session

Are you wondering what could make my boys sit so still? A stray turtle! I haven't taken a single picture since the wedding I shot 15 days ago! That is such a no-no for an aspiring photographer who should be shooting something everyday. So, imagine my gusto when I had a new subject to shoot! Little did I know that I would take 80 pictures of the little reptile. We had ourselves a nice little photo session. If I could just get him to pay up. :)

This is the prodigy of Wolverine. The kid needs a summer haircut. He will be appearing in X-Men the Finale as Wolverine's son this summer. You won't want to miss his debut.

Meet Simon.

Simon, you are so dreamy and dashing in this photo. The girls are going to swoon.

Get back in the grass, little mister. We aren't done with our session yet.

This is the turtle whisperer, aka Wolverine's son.

The boys on their way to return Simon to his home.
The look on a little fella's face when I told him we wouldn't be keeping Simon. Goodness, boy, don't you have a mommy that will wash your face?

When I grow up, I want to be an animal photographer. Now, if I can just figure out how to get them to pay me.

I've got 3 groundhogs and a bunch of rabbits running around my back yard you can come photograph. But good luck, they are quick little boogers!

Love the sweet turtle face and the Wolverine hair!

Love the pics of Simon. He is a handsome little turtle. And I laughed out loud at the conversation you had with Cade. Classic.

FYI - If you have one girl surrounded by boys, chances are SHE will be the one retrieving the clip out of a toilet bowl of pee. No daintiness around here!
