Parents To Be

This is a poor photograph I've used here......DS tends to clown around when a camera appears......and S avoids the camera when possible......it never ceases to amaze me how they all run for cover when I get out my camera......but are happy for their mates to take, and post, hundreds of photos on Facebook!!!!!
But I wanted to document the impending birth of their 'little princess'......as S refers to her.....so this photo had to do!
I based the LO on one of Shimelle's Prompt 10 sketches.......Layer your Delicates.......and loosely followed the idea of layering up pastel colours.......and left quite a lot of 'white' space for me!!!!

Gosh, I think I've been known to run from the camera over the years ... of course I know better now! I bet they change their tune once their gorgeous little darling makes her entrance :-)

I think the photo gets the idea across! The addition of the raised butterflies and dragon fly really adds to the delicacy of the layout.

Smashing layout and record of the impending event, and your son doesn't look too afraid of you!!!!

It's a great layout, Jacky, and I actually like the photo you have used. I think it captures the essence of this young couple at a turning point in their lives. Hopefully they'll warm up to the camera once Princess arrives!

Ah yes, just wait until they are parents themselves, they'll understand the desire to photograph everything then! Lovely impromptu shot, and a lovely take on the Shimelle layout.

Love the layout - great use of Shimelle's ideas for this weekend. Are you excited about becoming a grandma?

Well the camera shy kids still look the part lol. Will this be your first grandchild? Love the layout and the little one will enjoy looking at it in years to come too.

Isn't it crazy with kids how their friends can take pictures til the cows come home, but when Mom gets out the camera, the photo shoot is over? I still think it is a great shot!

I recognise that facebook-OK-canera-not syndrome! And the white space sets off your photo really well - like those butterflies!

I agree that the photo is really quite perfect--tells a story on it's own, although the layout certainly enhances it.
