Unexpected Photos

For the second time, I was approached by a photographer at Kiddie Kandids (the studio at Babies’R’Us) regarding taking Anya’s picture for training purposes in exchange for a free print for us. I’m never one to turn down free professional pictures, so of course I said yes. I’m glad I did, because I would like to get portraits of Anya done around her second birthday, and the last few times we took her she was afraid of the photographer and cried.  She got some practice today, and she didn’t cry once! It took some doing to get her to smile – she needed a toy to hold – but she warmed up pretty quickly.

    Apparently the photographer trainees can recognize a beautiful child!

    Those are great shots, you’d never know she needed time to warm up.

    Grammy – Thank you! I think she’s cute, too.

    Erica – Thank you as well. I felt bad for the photographer since she was trying so hard to get Anya to smile in the beginning and all she was getting was a stone-faced expression in return. But no tears, woo hoo!
