Its like sqeezing out that last bit of toothpaste, or shaking one more drop of ketchup from the bottle – we have a sense of completeness unfulfilled. And thats how the three of us happened to be standing by a tree, poking our heads into the branches and making strange animal noises.
We were trying to convince Gia that there were Llamas in the buses – we were coaxing one more smile from her tired, cold body and apparently, Llamas were quite the hit. So after watching the two adults make crazy gestures, sounds, and faces – Gia bent into the branches to look for Llamas. We got that one last smile – but the day did start off much easier!
I met Gia last year for her Xmas photos – we create a great template of her & mum to be printed & mailed. Alot cheaper than using the templates at the local print shop and customized to her vision. This March, Gia came out for some photos in the park just before her birthday.
She had alot of fun, as all 2 year olds do, picking up tiny rocks & throwing them. Her energy was boundless – even after a tumble or two. We blew bubbles, flew a kite, tossed coins into a fountain, and, yes, applied lotion to flowers (ahh its a kid thing!).
Of course – no children photography session is complete without mud on the knees or some other messy mishap. But with a little touch of editing, Photoshop, and a patient hand – these ooops dont have to appear on your favourite enlargement / print.
