paparazzo Bran and the sullen starlet

Nuala loves having photos of herself taken. Shocker. Especially if she's wearing something she deems extra-pretty, like this shiny, sparkly, twirly birthday outfit from her friend, Katherine. Sometimes it's a nice, plain shot, like the above, sometimes they're fun, crazy poses and strange smiles. Bran loves to take pictures. Perfect combo, depending on the subject's mood. I'll often be flipping through pics and find a series of smiling/wacky Nuala shots, or one like the following, that only helps verify that Bran does, indeed, have a bit of a reckless streak:

Hahaha :) I've gotta laugh. We have so many grumpy Nuala shots, and none of Bran that I can think of. Well, none of him being purposely grumpy. I remember being grumpy in pictures and thinking, "that'll show Mom!" or whoever, but really, you just end up looking grumpy. And then your mom laughs at you. Clearly, this is a little different, since it was her brother snapping away and we know that siblings can occasionally get under one's skin, but I've got some gooood grumpy Nuala shots where I've been behind the camera. The zillion smiley ones balance these out, so I feel no guilt sharing her cute grumpiness with the world. Well, with y'all.

Hehehe, poor Nuala! She is still cut, even grumpy. Her hair is looking so cute! And I love her outfit, very sparkly :)

Dude, do you have the computer wired into your brain, Tooks?! You are such a super fast commenter! You are awesome :) Kisses to my cute nieces! And mom. And you. High five to Marc.

What, you don't want to kiss Marc, Fiona? That's so un-sisterly of you. ;)

I LOVE these pics! Nuala is extra adorable at being grumpy, LOL. All the different grumpy poses crack me up, too. I wonder when she'll come to the realization that glaring at him doesn't discourage him at all and she should just throw a shoe at him instead? ;) (Just kidding...) And what do you mean siblings occasionally get under your skin??? I'm shocked! That would never happen with any of us...

Okay, I can't even type that with a straight face, LOL! ;)

Aislinn, I totally cracked up at your comment. That is so cool your twins make such a good pair. She really is cute grumpy or not.

Rochelle said...

I kind of thought she was trying to look sleek, sullen, and sexy.....like models do on t.v. She's trying out the face. You're going to have to lock her up in a few years. She is so pretty.

As I was scrolling down, I kept thinking the next picture was going to be of Nuala getting up, then approaching the camera, then her hands reached out in a menacing grasping sort of way, then black. If my brother had the camera, that's the way that photo essay would've ended guaranteed.

Hahaha! That's hilarious! Very brave Bran! Brigit thought Nuala looked very pretty in the first picture and insisted on making all of them big(which we do anyway, but this time she was very bossy about it.) She commented that Nuala looked mad and with each successive picture, "hmm...still mad" then she wanted to go back to the top one and said "she's happy here" She's super Cute, even/especially mad! Haha!

Seriously, I don't know why it hasn't come to a shoe or something being chucked at him, or her actually wrenching the camera from his hands. She can be...physical...with him. Which he doesn't mind until he realizes she means BUSINESS. Maybe I should make sure he's only using the old camera in the future...

Lol, don't you know I sit by the computer, checking hourly for blog updates? ;)

I meant to say cute, not cut in that first comment, in case that wasn't clear.

Hey those were great pictures by Bran man. The pout and the grump are priceless. Especially since I don't have to deal with it if it gets ugly.
