Mondays are tough on even the little ones.
Monday was a real disaster of a day. Denise was out of town and I was struggling to get the kids to school. The struggles from that made my delay to the studio even more devastating. One of our favorite families had a session at 10:00, I was caught on Kirby in that ridiculuos traffic and my assistant was MIA. Needless to say not even Little Gillian was in the mood for photographs.
We tried everything to get Gillian to relax but it just wasn’t going to happen. I think the best of the bunch is the image of her chubby little toes. Even angry and upset this kid is sweet.
The best was when Gillian waved goodbye with big alligator tears in her eyes and said bye bye after an hour of avoiding any eye contact. She thinks she won but I got more tricks up my sleeve. Gillian has brought the challenge so let the games begin…
The point of all this is that it doesnt matter how many great cameras you own light equipment you have strung up everywhere, or countless hours of photography under your belt, if a 2 year old has your number on a Monday morning by gosh your gonna get it.
I just have to keep telling myself, it’s a camera not a wand.
