Mirror Photo Shoot Fail

A few weeks ago we purchased a new large mirror. Before we hung it on the wall, I thought it would be fun to take a few snap shots of Tate like this photo shoot Casey did of Vivi.

It was a fun exercise, though not completely successful. Not because he doesn’t love his reflection, because boy does he ever. It failed because he didn’t want to sit on his reflection and because other things were on his mind, like grabbing my camera and checking out the birds outside.

Still we managed to get a few good shots. Click through to see my favorites (fails and all).



  • One 1 of 9
    Alright, he's smiling.
  • Two 2 of 9
    A little unsure
  • Three 3 of 9
    He scurried off of the mirror as fast as possible.
  • Four 4 of 9
    More interested in the camera than his reflection.
  • Five 5 of 9
    Eye contact through the mirror.
  • Six 6 of 9
    Getting tired of this exercise.
  • Seven 7 of 9
    Seriously, mom?
  • Eight 8 of 9
    Again with the camera
  • Nine 9 of 9
    Who cares about this mirror photo business? Not Tate.

PS – How classy is his shirt/sweater/tie combo minus the pants? This is how Sunday afternoon always looks at our house.
