I mean, forget a themed shoot at this point. The goal morphed into putting them ON CAMERA. And that was the extent of it.
Because they were tired I had a difficult time getting them to look at the camera. Or even sit still long enough. Smiling? Well, that didn't matter so much.
When I looked back through the images this morning there were next to no usable ones.
And the photo session was promptly cut short because the little girl dissolved into tears.
We'll call it "memories" and move on.
It can only get better from here. I think it might take me an entire year to come up with a family portrait for the wall.
