After getting rained out several times, we finally got to get together with Shannon and have some pictures taken. My little drama queen diva did not make this a pleasant experience for anyone.
I tried to come prepared this time with bribes.
After she was throwing a fit during the first picture, I promised her a snack if she would just look at the camera...once.
Well she got the snack and then my whole little plan backfired. She refused to let go of the snack pack, or the fruit snacks. It was a choice of either having her throw a hissy fit thus ending the photo session before it even started, or just not caring if the snack pack was in every picture.
I don't know how she does it. Shannon was still able to get a bunch of cute ones thanks to some creative cropping. I'm so sad that she's retiring from her gig. She is a fantastic photographer and I'm so glad that we've been able to get to use her over the last two years. Thanks Shannon!!!
This one will give you an idea of how the session itself went....you can see we're are actually holding Graham in place...during one pic I was so busy with little diva, that Graham actually face planted into the flower bed. Poor laid back second child.
