Eliya, age 3, immediate best friend, expert twirler, big sister, will smile for the camera in exchange for gum
Aria, almost age 1, little sister (who has no intention in being in pictures with big sister), only here for the snacks
I think the Heinzekehr kids have it out for me.
I joke. I joke.
But seriously, these kids have a thing about glaring at my camera lens at every photo shoot we try to do. (And I see pictures on Facebook of them smiling away. So I do know it’s possible).
On Saturday, I met Hannah, Ellie and baby Conrad at the park for another photo shoot. This time featuring Conrad who is turning 6 months old. I am actually amazed that things went so well, what with Conrad knowingly smirking at me and the horde of mosquitoes that attacked.
Maybe eventually they will warm up to me. In the meantime, I am glad that we did get a couple of good ones.
A year ago I met 1 year old Ellie. Let me tell you, she was not interested in smiling for the camera. (Check it out). Yeah, she was not impressed. Yesterday, I took her 2 year old pictures. This time, we did get her to smile thanks to the help of balloons and a very fun park.
