WEE ONES: The return of my niece… {Kansas City children photographer}

Go figure that the most difficult session I’ve ever had was with my niece. Go figure that my sister tells me that Cailin reminds her a lot of me because I always have to go-go-go. The whole relaxing thing? Yeah, I’m not too good at it. And apparently, Cailin can’t sit still either. Of course, she is at the most challenging age to photograph anyway… not quite 2 years old.

Sessions at this age entail me chasing after them… snapping when I can… cracking up when it becomes apparent that their smiles & cooperation only come out to play when the camera is away from my face. I can’t blame them… a black piece of technology in their faces isn’t exactly interesting or entertaining.

But Cailin and I share another trait…we’re both persistent. 😉 So I hung in there until we got enough to be satisfied. So here is my favorite little girl in the world (who will continue to be that until I someday have one of my own and then she might move to a close 2nd. 😉 haha)

{All images were taken in Stuart, Nebraska (pop: 620 or so)…which is where my mom grew up with her 7 brothers and sisters. The first few were out behind my grandma’s house…the others were at my aunt & uncle’s place down the road. THANKS, Debbie & Neal! I’d thank Grandma here, too…but she thinks things like internet are “staying one step ahead of the Lord…” Needless to say…she doesn’t even own a computer.)

These first three are lumped together in a series called…”Sunkissed Rascal.” (And yes, I just thought of this…impressed, no? )

Hints at what she’ll look like when she’s a teenager…on the left is when she is timidly asking for something that might not get the answer she wants.  The one on the right is when her suspicions are confirmed.

You want to have kids whom you can someday put in cute hats (more for our enjoyment than theirs??) My advice is to start putting hats on them from the time they come out of the womb…(newborn sessions!!!) Cailin rarely bucks when Temple tops off her cute lil’ head. In fact, I think she LOVES it.

My faves…because I see two sides of her six-sided personality…
