this is only 8th grade so im sure by high school he will have an all new level of "i hate this" going on with his expression. it sucks for them to have a photographer for a mom cuz i demand they pose. DEMAND. TILT YOUR HEAD 3/4 AWAY FROM ME SON AND LEAN INTO YOUR ARM.
You never know, he may be completely stoked by that point. (False hope FTW!) My parents did the same shit, since they did the photography crap until a few years ago. I may have subconsciously decided to make myself fat just so they'd leave me alone. Oh hey, I like that theory. WATCH HIS FOOD INTAKE :|
i am actually not too hard on them, i don't like getting my picture taken really either. so we have a deal, for certain events (noteworthy ones like graduations) i get to take as many pix as I want which they will nicely pose for and in return I don't bug them every day to be in pictures.
