I’ve never met a little girl that honestly despises having their photo taken; I tried every single trick I know plus made up 10 more along the way…nope…she wouldn’t budge & I took it personally, I was like wow…this kid hates me! Ivy had water works, arm flapping, and flat out refusal whilst crying to hop in the car and leave.
She is that darn cute and I just wanted to capture that sweet little soul that was hidden. We played a few games..Mum bribed her with skittles, bubbles, any lolly she wanted & I even ended up photographing barefoot on gravel just to keep her happy (LOL) the multiple games kept her happy for all of 5 seconds.
At the end of our session Ivy didn’t want to go until I she could have a cuddle with me – DAY MADE! She didn’t hate me and although her Mumma felt like her daughter was creating ‘bad’ photo’s I think they are perfect, and I hope you do too.
