Family photoshoots are tricky at the best of times.
Finding one snap where everyone looks good at the same time is hard enough. But it’s 10 times as hard if one member of the family goes rogue and dives into a muddy lake.
Two-year-old Lincoln Mizzles, from Flint, Texas, was getting a bit bored of the summertime photoshoot his family was having with photographer Jasmine Tamlin, and decided he’d like to cool off with a refreshing mud bath.
He ran off and threw himself into a nearby lake, bringing the session to an abrupt end.
Dad Matthew, 24, had to dive in the lake himself to bring the naughty boy back to shore.
Mum Haleigh, 25, said: “Me and Matthew wanted to get a few shots alone so we had placed our children on a nearby mat, but still in view.
“We then noticed Lincoln running towards the water, so we chased after him.
“He just beat us and dad had to jump in after him.
“The photoshoot was immediately over after that.”
Photographer Jasmine shared the hilarious photos on her Facebook page, saying: “Sometimes you photograph toddlers, and sometimes they jump into ponds.
“I had a blast photographing this family, even though two out of the five members got drenched in nasty pond water.”
