So here's how the story goes. Drew's class had a field trip last week to a tick-infested forest (um, no thanks), so I gave him a free pass from school and he and the tiny tornado and I made a day of it. I thought since I was armed with a helper (a 1st grader... what was I thinking?) that we could take Livia to the State Capitol for a few pictures.
I posted this picture on TT's Tumblr blog last week and I titled it "A Royal Sip." Man I crack myself up.
So after our initial race through the Capitol yielded no pictures of Livia's face, I decided to return again this week armed with the big guns (aka grandma).
And face pictures we got!
Toddler photo tip: We have a stack of preschool flashcards, you know... an A on one side, an apple on the back. So my mom stood behind me and made a game of it. Livia loved it! Since roughhousing and horeseplay are TT's activities of choice, this nice quiet activity took her by surprise. (Seriously try it...it works!)
Poor baby has inherited my dance moves. :-(
I'm going to chalk these pictures up as a big fat success... and grandma will be doing many ride-alongs in the future. ;-)
Before you go, I want to thank you for all the questions you emailed me and left in comments in the past couple days. My inbox was a-flurry with activity. :-) I think I responded to every question by email, but if I missed one it was not intentional. Please drop me a note if I missed yours. I thought many of the questions might be duplicates... in which case I would talk about them on my blog. But to my surprise, there were questions of every kind! What actions do I like, how I do a clean edit, questions about metering, exposure... you name it. So I responded by email and I hope that helped! :-) As I said before, you're welcome to email me anytime.
Hope you have a wonderful week! xo
