The upside was that the mom had no expectations. She told me her little boy would be very tough and she didn't think we'd get much of him. The downside was that she was right. He was so hard to engage. He was VERY clingy but even more than that was his utter dislike of the camera. I'd get him distracted and busy with something and as soon as he saw the camera he went crying for mom. Frustrating. But in the end we definitely got enough stuff. Whew! Of course, big sister was a total ham for the camera. Did whatever I told her and loved it.
The only one I have of them together:
my new flea market wagon ($10)
my little stool that I stand on - hey whatever works!
my daughter's carnival prize goldfish - this was her idea LOL
my flea market skate board
and the sister:
we went outside but only spent about 5 minutes because it was over 90 and HUMID
on the swingset
okay, for being tough you sure got a LOT of great photos!!!! love all of the yes. you know three of my kids have brown eyes, and some times I struggle with the "sparkle" (yeah, I can get catchlights but sometimes there's an extra sparkle). I think you did a wonderful job!

WOW! For a tough session, you sure got some winners there. Big sis is ADORABLE w/ a capital A! *LOVE* her attitude in #8.
Both collages are SUPER DUPER - LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! The ballerina is just beyond precious.
I can't find a single nit pick on these - theyr'e just too awesome (& so are you)!
TFS ... you have no idea how much I enjoy your posts.
I am impressed that this was a tough session. You certainly got enough good shots. Nice job!
For a tough session you did a fantastic job of capturing him! I love the balerina one!! The collages are awesome! The ONLY thing that is bugging me is the skateboard collage. He has a string from his pants coming down over his bright white sock. My eye went to it almost instantly. easy fix tho!
Is the tutu yours? I love the goldfish idea!!! awesome!!
OH Goodness Gracious Esti! Tough session my @ss!
Your work is always so crisp and clean. I love it Esti!
Thanx ladies. I guess if it didn't look tough, I did my job right.
Let me tell you - I was a sweaty mess by the end of that one.
