Amelia: 3 Years Old!
The weekend before last (I’m slightly behind), I met up with Amelia for her 3 year old portrait session at Pullen Park. Amelia wasn’t completely interested in having her photo taken, but with the promise of playtime at the park, she allowed me to shoot while she tried her best to avoid the camera. It used to make me nervous when kids did this to me…the fear of not capturing the beautiful smiling shots that all parents want. Over time, I’ve learned to just roll with the punches. Three year olds are especially fun (I say that now with my own 2 year old). So independent. A little bossy. A little grumpy. Just forces me to work a little harder. But by the looks of these photos, I’m not sure you’d ever know that Miss Amelia ever put up a fight. And, just as we promised, as soon as I was able to capture a few “pretty” photos, we changed clothes and went to play. A little carousel ride…a little train action…a little boat ride. I don’t know any child who can contain a smile when they’re having fun. So thanks Amelia for all the laughs and giggles. You are one of the most wonderful 3 year olds I know and I look forward to seeing you again in November!
