This little girl was a ham. Mischievous, hiding, not doing a thing that mommy asked. But that’s really okay. We want happy kids, even if I have to chase them around and do goofy things. Most of all I want to catch them being themselves, in all their silliness or rambunctiousness. Which is almost always better than sulky kids who are less likely to smile, play, and give hugs after they’ve been reprimanded. So I just let the sessions flow, and even the most rebellious and uncooperative kids find their way into endearing and sweet images.
