This is my sister Maegan and her Family. Maegan helped me take my family portraits the same day. I HATE doing family pictures of my own family (ask any photographer and they will say the same thing). I end up leaving my shoot threatening my kids, REALLy Bad. Maegan lives in Summerside and so it only fits to have their portraits done on the docks there.
I don’t think I mentioned the “Grumpy Old Man”. So 1 week prior to this, I took maegan out into a wheat field to do my family portraits. I usually ask permission to do so but there was no house on site and we were not doing any damage, just staying on the “road”. Of course, our crazy kids go off into the wheat and all you can see is their head bobbing up and down. My sister and I then see a man across the street just starring for a long time. So we start yelling at our kids to come back. They finally do. THEN, this VERY grumpy old man (he was creepY) comes over and starts just yelling at us. I’m surprised he did not bring a gun. We were in the wrong but he didn’t have to be such a grump. Holy. Maegan’s daughter was like, “I though Old Mcdonald was supposed to be nice?” lol.
My kids talked about the “Grumpy Old man for days”. At the time, I was trying to be nice but afterwards I thought of all these nasty things I should have said to him. I guess I have to keep my inner dragon tamed around my kids. I can’t help it. I’m a red head. We didn’t even up doing portraits there. I want to either bake him cupcakes and drop them off because I feel sorry for him that he is such a mean old man or put a flaming bag of poop on his doorstep and run. I can’t decide.
