I kidnapped my friend's little boy tonight to take his 4 year old pictures. He is such a handsome little man...and managed to cut his own hair 2 days before his mommy scheduled pictures. So...this little guy was sporting a perfect summer buzz cut! I got some super cute images of him and I also figured out how to get my own kid to WANT her picture taken!
She was SUPER jealous that I was paying more attention to another child. She kept asking me to take HER picture. Let's be honest here...she was wearing something I would NEVER have her wear for pictures. Her hair was left over from yesterday's church hair-do and she was wearing her older brother's old cowboy boots and sporting her FAVORITE dress that her daddy bought her. I could not believe how cooperative she was. She posed herself saying.."I do it, I do it!"
Crazy girl. I guess the secret is really not too much of a secret. Let them pick out their own clothes and ignore them a bit. I ended up with images I can't get enough of! Cowboy boots and all.
