Metta's wild adventures in toddler photography

I thought I was being helpful, but I'm just not sure. A new friend of mine needs a few pictures of her little girl for an upcoming 2nd birthday announcement, so I offered to try out my new camera and get some really cute shots. I looked at some great photography of kids the night before, I was all pumped to try out the camera with this new little model, but it turns out I had some tough competition: pinecones, rocks, even DIRT was more exciting than I was. This little girl is so fun to hang out with, and she is the biggest smiler, but for that one hour she insisted on looking serious, looking down, or looking away! I should invite Marcos to come along on these excursions... he can make a great monkey face...

Metta,

Oh my goodness. These are darling. This little girl is so cute. I can't wait for us to get together. Will you take some of Kaitlyn? We'll definitely need Marcos to help Kaitlyn smile! Good job. You're a pro. These were really fun to look at.

Love ya, Marie
