Awhile ago, I posted a shot of my older son, Kyle – today I finally managed to trap my younger son Keane. (His nickname is KNR.) I had asked both kids to give me one hour of their time for a photoshoot, as a birthday gift to me, in July (any bribe will do!). The older one was obliging, the younger one not so much!!
This guy is hard to capture, both in the flesh and with the camera. He grudgingly allowed me 10 minutes today!!! Just at the VERY end of the 10 MINUTE shoot, he got silly and I caught this mischievous side of him. Love you KNR!!!

    a great shot Wendi, the easiest ways to get them next time is tell them the world loves their mum more than they do, so pull there finger out, cos when your rich and famous it’s their inheritance.

  • Hi Terry… your advice….why didn’t I think of that!! DUH! Realy pleased to have this one at least. Thanks!!!

    Lovely processing Wendi!!
    BIG congrats on catching him!! He looks quite comfortable infront of the camera and I do see a glint in his eyes!.

  • Hey Vikram…thanks for your lovely comments….Actually, no, ‘this one’ hates the camera so I was very lucky to get something ‘this decent’!! He was in ‘run’ mode!! He does have a sparkle tho’…when you can catch it! Cheers!
