'Tis the season for recitals, n'est-ce pas?
This evening, I dolled Sadie up for her most UNCOOPERATIVE photo shoot ever. I was the worst-mom-of-the-year and forgot to sign Sadie up for her studio recital photos, so I decided to snap this afternoon until I got an excellent posed shot with a natural smile that we could put in a frame. HA! Sadie was better at posing for photos when she was 18 months old than she was today. Alas, here are a few of the better ones (and by "better," I mean "didn't turn out blurry because she was running off camera" or "wasn't totally faking a smile so that I would leave her alone").
First shot of the day...she likes to reel you in before thoroughly acting like a little turkey :)
Sketchers and tutus
I have no idea...
Pulling the grass up from the roots and playing with it (while I'm yelling, "Sadie - don't you want AWESOME pictures for your grandparents??!?!?! Put that thing down and smile at me!")
Smile...with hands and arms everywhere
Climbing the fence...
Doing "ballet" around the yard
Plucking needles off of a pine tree
Pouting because I'm making her stand still
Running away from me...that's more fun than standing still apparently.
Overexposed (how does that happen on a digital camera?) but I like this one:
No smiles, but couldn't you just eat up those cheeks? You should be jealous that I get to smooch them as much as I want.
