It’s only four months late, but I finally got around to taking “Easter” portraits of the monkeys. Gimme a break! It was raining on Easter Sunday. Not that last Sunday’s weather was any more pleasant at an oppressive 103 degrees. But I figured my time was running out, so I drug the monkeys outside after church and snapped a few pics.
Picture day with the monkeys was, as always, a chore. Honestly, these pictures are not the best the monkeys have ever taken. None of the three of them was in a picture taking mood – heat or no heat. And no one was quite as dressed up as on actual Easter Sunday. Shirt…untucked. Tie…AWOL. Hair…finger combed.
And Tacy’s choice of jewelry? Colorful to say the least. Did I mentioned she decorated herself with a red ink pen just before picture time??
Of the 48 pictures we took, I only got one decent picture of the three monkeys together. But one is all you really need, right?
As a reward, we let the monkeys do a “funny face” picture at the end of the shoot. I think Ty’s face perfectly expressed the overall mood of the day. Disgust.
Now I have my sights set on a fall photo shoot. I already have newly sewn dresses waiting in the closet for Tacy and Lucy to wear, and I’m hopeful that everyone’s attitude will be a bit more positive when things cool down, say 30 degrees or so.
