40 photos

The weather was so nice today! I wanted to take some pics of Savy in front of my whirling butterflies that just started blooming. She's been pretty good in front of the camera lately, so I thought it would be a piece of cake to get a good shot.

I wound up taking about 40 pictures just to get a couple of good ones. She can be so stubborn sometimes (she gets that from Jon) soon as she knew I wanted to take her picture, she refused to look at me.

Then she got angry when I made her sit in her chair...of course she was crying in the one that actually had the best color and lighting.

Then she pouted

and she got frustrated

I finallly saw a little smile. She must've forgotten she was mad at me...or maybe she just gave up.

I'm so jealous of Jennifer's photography skills! I'm lucky just to get a shot where she's not bawling...who has time to worry about settings, lighting, and all that stuff?

Oh, that was so pityful. She still looked so precious. She sure was dressed cute. That must have been what she wore to the pre-school today. She always is dressed cute though. She's always beautiful to me.

Jennifer said...

I'm laughing so hard right now... Those faces are priceless! You will have to show her these pictures when she gets older.

I know how you feel. I try to get pictures of Carolyn and she either walks toward the camera or wont cooperate with me.

I love these pictures! She gets prettier every time I see her. I've wondered the same thing about how you get the lighting, etc. all perfect when you're trying just to get a decent shot. Maybe we'll figure that out one day. These are great shots and I really enjoy coming in here to 'visit' with y'all online. Maybe one day I'll actually talk to you in person :-)
