Marla, John & Katherine…and Bruiser

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.Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family PhotoMarla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 2Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 3Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 4Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 5Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 6

I know parents aren’t thrilled when their kids get pouty, but something about it just kills me! How funny would it be if adults did this when they’d had enough of getting their picture taken??Marla, John & Katherine... and Bruiser Family Photo 10

Thank you, Marla, John, Katherine and Bruiser, for sharing your afternoon with me & giving me some incredible moments to remember.
