This little cutie's mother lets me baby sit her sometimes. I am trying to teach her to like having her picture taken. I work with her a little bit each time I have her. I think this is about my 3rd attempt :) If I ask her if she wants her picture taken of course she says no. So, I got the little tea party set up on the backdrop and just waited for her to notice. Pretty soon she ask to get up on the table and play with the tea pot and cup. These are just mismatched pieces that I wouldn't be upset if they got chipped or broken. At two years of age her coordination doesn't make it easy for her to "pour" tea without bumping the pot and cup together.
She poured the imaginary tea, and took the lid off the pot, and inspected it, giving me a few cute smiles and I snapped away. Pretty soon she tired of it and we moved on to something else. I thought I would try again in a little bit but she wanted her pretty dress off and her jammies on, so that is what we did.
Later when I looked at these pictures I had 8 that were useable. I was pretty happy with that. I checked the exif data and discovered we took pictures for two minutes and thirtyseven seconds! That was as long as her attention span could stand :) But I wanted to be sure and quit without making her dislike having her picture taken..... I wanted it to be fun to her. Hopefully she will eventually tolerate it for a little longer.
