Taking pictures of a 2 year old
taking pictures of my own 2 year old without any help
the 2 year old has a cold and is grumpy
the photographer is slow and sore
the perfect 2 year-old birthday pictures? We can only dream...
Mandy was naughty and I was frustrated.
I got a lot of pictures of her running away from me. And then I had to stand up and chase her. Ouch.
But her outfit is sure cute. The jeans are Children's Place -- love the adjustable waist. I got the sweater for $4 at a consignment shop and it is Baby Gap. The boots were Emma's, second hand from another little girl.
"You want me to do what? Smile?"
Mandy's birthday is next week and I really wanted to get her portraits taken, edited and printed. Because you never know what tomorrow may bring.
So, the question remains: did I get any good pictures of Mandy? Tune in next week on the 16th to see the results and I'll post my reflections on my precious little girl, smiling or not.
