Fiddle Sticks! . . .

According to the teachings of 'Cat's in the Cradle' (by Harry Chapin), isn't it supposed to be later in life when the kid(s) have no time for the parent? I have had to ask each child to please SCHEDULE me on their calendars. We were supposed to attempt pictures for Christmas cards last weekend - no good for either of them! Then we were supposed to attempt pictures for Christmas cards Wednesday because they would be out of school....last minute friend outing vetoed the plans. I managed to snap a few of Ryan while waiting for Allyson to get ready, but for the life of me, pretending to be a photographer off the cuff just isn't working for me. I have re-scheduled for this Sunday...and there will be a penalty assessed if either of them even think of canceling.

And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
"When you coming home, son?" "I don't know when,
But we'll get together then, dad.
You know we'll have a good time then."
~~Harry Chapin~~


  1. Oh the brooding teen! He's got that mastered so he should have more time for you now. ;)

  2. I agree, you should never let the client run your schedule. I would write that in the contract for future sessions......there will be a severe penalty for missed sessions!! (I think I see a nice foot rub in your future) :P PS- Thank you for the awesome comments on my blog. I agree, you should visit Alaska one day, it is amazing!!

  3. ditto about the foot rub. I think you have some wonderful shots and i love his hair

  4. He's got that teen angst look down perfectly. And now Harry will sing to me all night, which is ok, because I really like that song!

  5. I love that teen boy serious look! So "cool!"

  6. No time already? I'm not ready for those days yet. But he's sooo handsome even with all that seriousness!

  7. Uh oh! Handsome guy is going to have less time before much longer :( But then they actually come to WANT time with you, eventually. (Except for photos. Unless they need them for something.)
