He said//She said

She Said:
One of your favorite things about Collin: He always shares bites of his shake with me. Even after the fact that I said I didn't want one and end up eating all of his.
First thing you do when you wake up: See how long I can hide under the covers before one of the munchkins finds me.
Your favorite date moment: Windows down and both singing, "Don't Wanna Miss a Thang" as loud as we can on the way home.
If you could be anywhere at this moment where? On the Dumbo ride at Disneyland, just to watch Avery's smile.
How do you eat your Oreo cookies? Cream filling first.
He Said:
One of your favorite things about Liz: (The first two answers for this were edited for your sake.) Her widdle chin.
First thing you do when you wake up: Say to myself, "Please let me just sleep for 5 more months."
Your favorite date moment: When Liz wore high heels and was almost as tall as me. She got close and said, "Aren't you glad you married a Trojan woman?!" Me: "I think you mean, 'Amazon' woman?"LOL.
If you could be anywhere at this moment where? Throwing random objects into helicopter blades.
How do you eat your Oreo cookies? By the row and dunked in milk.


Shorts, Shoes, Belt: Shop Ruche// Necklace: Anthro
Date night is the marshmallows from my Lucky Charms to my week. We don't do it every week during the summer but at least a couple times a month. We were bored and waiting for our table at Texas Road House so we took some impromptu photos. Despite what you may think, it's really not Collin's favorite thing to do (take posed pictures). So, when we just happen to have a wait at the restaurant and I just happen to have my camera handy in my purse. (Oh, lookey here.)
Not to mention there just happens to be perfect summer lighting and no kids with us to chase after. Then it just worked out.

You should try it on your next date night. Why, you ask? (I'm still trying to find a good answer for that. It's fun? or... to scrapbook? I'll think about that more...;)
Don't make it a big deal but just set up a self-timer shot where your husband or boyfriend feels like he doesn't have to pose. Bribery: Promise something big in return for "just one picture, please?!" Haha but you really end up taking way more.
Going with the previous, don't overkill because then the next time he definitely won't want to. Be ready for the perfect moment.
But don't expect perfection. Even if your pictures turn out like the ones below, be happy with it. :)

Oh, I love the HE SAID/SHE SAID feature. I might have to make my husband answer some questions like this, too.

Nice to see your different personalities shine through the answers and the photos.

I love the backlit photography. Really stunning. Long live powerful flashes! :)

This Good Life

Amanda said...

that is hilarious. My 8 year old can not take a decent photo without pulling some wierd faces. Usually it is a crazy tongue as long as a giraffe hanging out the side of his mouth.

josefina said...

Love this post! I've been trying to get my husband to take more photos (and actually trying to teach him photo techniques); he's getting a little better. Hilarious photos at the end - love it!

Tiffany said...

OKay I was looking at the last photo and I wasn't ready for the animation. LOL!!!!!! It scared me! Haa! I love the He said/She Said feature. Cute idea. Def do one for me and Dan on our date night.

Neicee said...

So I scrolled until all I could see was Collins eyes (not his mouth moving) and it was soo funny..then I watched only his mouth move and he def. has all the expression in his eyes!! Too Funny!

Winter said...

Too funny! :)

Sarah said...

Shannon :-) said...

Love it! Just a quick question. Do you scrapbook all of your pics you take? If not what do you do with them?

Thanks Shannon

Brit @ JandMs Eye Candy said...

I have to ask this, been wondering it for a long time. When, how and where to you work out? You look amazing and you just had a baby. I want to hate you, ;) but you are just to awesome :) Thanks for your awesome blog!

lisa said...

love this! and love taking photos on date nights when i just happen to have my camera with me. :)

Emily said...

I love how you guys get so many fun pictures of yourselves! It's nice that you both are photographers too--my hubby only gets crappy pics of me! (I have to take them myself of me, which only turn out so so...)
Love the last one of Collin too! :)

Bonnie said...
