I was really worried about this shoot. My model had entered the the stranger danger/separation anxiety stage since our last shoot. I saw her the day before at a friend's birthday party and she wanted nothing to do with me. Two year olds are a lot like teenagers though. Maybe it's just lame to smile for the photographer in front of your friends when you're two. I tried to ask my three year old about this but he ignored the bulk of the question and insisted that 'smile' starts with the letter S like 'mommy' does (the alphabet is tricky). So um we may never know! But it turns out my fears were unfounded. She wasn't the least bit nervous. She jumped right in and started playing. She was hilarious!
