My kids never did,they hated it.My oldest grandson on the other hand is a total ham.He starts posing the minute anyone piciks up a camera! Which is really cute but yeah,sometimes he goes overboard and makes these really annoying faces.So then we put the camera down for a bit and catch him off guard when he's doing something else.

When my daughter was young she was a little ham. Every time she saw a camera she would pose. Now she is sixteen and she hates having her picture taken. My daughter is very pretty so I do not understand this. When she was about a month to maybe three months the photographer had to coax a smile out of her. However, at six months she was actually holding still for the photographer. Kids are so cute when they are young. Some times it is a shame they have to grow up. I had so much fun with my daughter before the teen years. I do hope she grows out of this faze of terrible teens. I think I could life with the terrible two's again because it was not that bad. Enjoy these little boys while they are young. They will bring you such joy and great memories. I have some great memories of my daughter. Hopefully she will out grow this stage of knowing it all and being all grown up. Take lots of pictures and deffinetly get a movie camera. I have tons of pictures of my daughter and some great movies as well. Your boys sound so cute. I am sure two can be a handfull but a lot of fun too.

yea they are very cute at that age,we take loads of pictures,and we have to buy a new video recorder so we dont miss out on anything.but i will tell you having 3 babies so close in age is so hard.between my 3 babies there is only 10 1/2 months apart.my twins are boy/girl and my other baby is a boy.so its like having triplets or irish twins.buy,i got my little girl though.

hi there, my daughter is 5 months old and yes, she always giving a good pose infront of the camera. Every time my husband and I had a camera in our hand, she will focusing on the camera instantly. Then she will make her pose, smile and laughing. There even one time, I wanted to send her picture for baby contest, so we (my husband, my sister-in law and her husband and myself)dressed her up, took her pictures with in so many pose and we done it in almost 3 hours. My baby?! She love it so much and give her full co-operation. She's my soul and my strenght to live.

I swear my kids were born to be infront of the camera. Every time someone has a camera pointed at them they have to have the biggest smile and a Bratz model pose. It is too adorable.

my oldest daughter would take really good picture for me until recently. She won't stay still and makes these mean looking faces and tells me no. Its since she hit those terrible 2's. She also wants to take the pictures herself. My 2 month old has been doing really well but she can't do much posing yet. I did get a good picture of her when she was sleeping one day and it looks like she is posing.

My daughter the poser - My daughter the poser and still in the running to become americas next top model
my 9 year old daughter has become quite the little poser thanks in no small part to her and my wife watching Americas Next Top Model...she has also developed her very own runway walk which is absolutely hilarious...I've attached a photo of her in a classic pose.

My 3 grandkids are little hams when it comes to picture taking. They love to get their picture snapped. The 2 older ones like to get their school pictures taken as well, and even worry about what they will wear lol.

Hi 3lilangels, You sure have a cute son! My son never liked to have his picture taken. He is now 16 years old and still doesn't like the camera. I have a step granddaughter that loves the camera. When she sees the camera she poses with a big smile. She is 2 years old.

my daughter is 9 and i have a big problem getting her from infront of the mirror. She says all the time I am so beautiful and I would laugh and tell her yes. She is full of herself at times. Even brushing her teeth it takes a long time because she has to be looking at herself. I guess I dont have a camera but if I had believe she would be doing that. When we have birthday parties at church , she is in everybody's photograph. She makes me laugh a lot.

I had 4 out of 5 that would pose.....no matter what they were doing,you couldn't catch them,it was like they had a sensor that went off whenever a camera was in the vicinity.....my 16 year old,he never stopped to look so i got him in a few compromising positions......I like get the 'off guard' pictures.....

My two teenagers are total opposites when it comes to the camera. My son has to be practically tied down to get a decent picture of him. My daughter, on the other hand, is the total picture hog. She loves to ham it up in front of the lens. She's always been like that.

Your little boy is adorable! My son loves the camera, too. He can be in the middle of a fit, see the camera, and start smiling. He will still have tears on his face, but the cutest smile. When we take him to get his picture taken, everyone is always so amazed by how well he does. He smiles for every picture every time. He just loves the flash and seeing himself in pictures. I hope it doesn't mean he's going to be really arrogant and conceited when he gets older! lol He does look at a picture of my husband, him, and me. He rubs all three faces through the frame and says "Pretty Mommy! Hamsome Daddy! Hamsome Elliott!"

Both my kids are pretty big hams, my son more than my daughter. When she was a baby it was so hard to get good pics she just wouldnt cooperate. Now she is better and actually asks to have her pic taken. My son is just a natural people person, I think he will be a politician some day

I have one that poses automatically whenever a camera comes out. I have one that tenses or freezes up so every picture we take comes out with him looking stiff and uncomfortable and my last one sees a camera and gets right in the lens. Every pic we have seems to be extreme close up. They are all very into theirselves when it comes to pictures now. They used to be really wiggly and couldn't sit still. BUt now that they realize how the whole thing works they are now the ones to bring out the camera.
