I could tell as soon as I got to this family’s home, & little Miss Katherine was introduced, that I had my work cut out for me – this little girl never stopped. And I was right; I pulled out all my tricks – trying to make my equipment seem totally interesting (“Oooh, Katherine, look at my big white umbrella!”), asking her if she could see my eye through the camera, rubber-banding my little frog finger puppet on top of my lens… she was having none of it. Then I pulled out the pretty pink & yellow pinwheel & she was slightly intrigued. She became determined to plant it (hey, it was kind of like a pretty flower) which required momentary cessation of movement. All in all, we got some great images of the family, & the family dog, Bruiser, (who is such a sweetie!) made the collection complete.
Thank you, Marla, John, Katherine and Bruiser, for sharing your afternoon with me & giving me some incredible moments to remember.
