Laugh Out Loud!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We got to share ours with our family, and enjoy a few days of time off.  But now we are back into the swing of things, and that includes the weekly photo challenges.  This week's theme is actually called "Bust a Gut", and all I could think of when I first read it was popping buttons off of clothing after all of that turkey and pie!  I suppose I associate everything with food.  The actual theme however, is just a burst of laughter from the gut - and I have the perfect picture! 

This is Jimmy.  He is a sweet boy with special needs and is very camera shy.  I'm not sure if he has ever had professional pictures done, but I know his family was really worried if he would be able to cooperate for me.  I even had some concerns because I hate scaring kids with my giant black camera and large flashes.  But I kind of let Jimmy do his thing, and the end result was that we got fabulous pictures!  His aunt and I worked really hard to make him laugh by talking about everything from Spongebob to boogers in our nose, and by the end of the session, he was a pro.  This picture was one of the first ones of him that I snapped, and I knew it was going to be a breeze after this. 

I am so glad that I get to share in capturing emotions like these.  This is what my job is all about!  Thanks for letting me get to know you Jimmy.
