trying to photograph a 2-year-old

It was a nice sunny day on Saturday after a long string of gloomy cold days, so I thought it’d be nice to put a cute dress on Harper and take some pictures outside.

Well, girlfriend was too happy to be outside running around to stand still for a picture. Between the wind and getting my settings right and trying to stay in front of her and getting her to listen, I was exhausted after five minutes.

She was taking advantage of the fact that pregnant mama can’t run as fast as she can.

Once in a while she would run towards me…and basically run right into me and knock me over with a hug.

At least I got this “ethereal” shot! (ahem, out of focus)

And then there was the ten minutes she spent trying to climb into the mailbox. “Mommy, I hiding!”

Then I had an idea. Maybe if I made her stand next to a tree and physically hold on to it, she’d stand still long enough!

It worked!!

She’s a goofball, but I love her.
