Hmmm Children are seriously unpredictable! No matter how much we try to "follow" your rules it doesnt mean our child will cooperate! Trust me we try harder than you do to make sure things are all set and they are fed napped and what not before....that doesnt guarantee us anything!!! I also like to capture a child how they really are. When R was a baby she always stuck her tongue out. The photographer kept trying to take pics with her tongue not out. I told her thats what shes doing at this age and I will buy a photo like that. I dont like them so totally staged. Off soap box now.
They sure are unpredictable... These are just a few tips to help things go more smoothly. :)
And even following the tips it still might not go smoothly! Unfortunately!
