FINALLY!!!!!!!!

I bribed, begged, threatened and ultimately FORCED my hubby to get in front of my camera tonight. Usually, my sticking a camera in his face prompts one of three reactions. My favorite (and most popular by far) is the middle finger salute. But lets not forget the finger up the nose (which I do believe runs in his family) or the flat out SPRINT out of the immediate vicinity! Pisses me off!

So, I told him that the 7 foot spruce tree that has taken over our living room will NOT be going anywhere until he gets in front of it to take some pictures with me!
Let's face it, I know DAMN well HE isn't going to take down the tree!

So, with literal TEARS IN HIS EYES (he's such a drama king!) and while he was repeating over and over (AND OVER) that I was 'Sucking out his will to live', we got a couple of photos taken!
It's a huge deal, as we've been married almost FIVE years and have NOT had a decent photo taken together since the day we were married~ So here they are. I really hope it doesn't take another 5 years to get some more... though it PROBABLY will!
Thanks for looking!

Good for him for giving into your request!! I think most of the time photographer's husbands are just as bad, if not worse, as photographer's kids- haha! These are very pretty photos- you guys make such a cute couple!

very nice photos. At least he doesn't look like he's being forced. My dh always has the same fake smile. Which always ruins the photo.

Gorgeous pictures!!! You two are so cute!

And I feel your pain... although mine likes having his picture taken, as long as the tongue is out and the eyes are crossed.... every picture for the last 6 years is like that!
