I had intended to get this post up last week, and then talk about all the curly-haired two year old girls I had been lucky enough to photograph in one week. But best of intentions and all that… Still little E sports some awesome golden curls and a personality to match!
I often wonder if the curly hair follows the personality or the personality follows the curls. E was fully of spirit–just has happy and full of life as she appears here. She was an great sport. As we started the shoot Mom lamented that she had forgotten to bring a hair clip or rubber band. Many frames later–with brilliant blue eyes peering from behind the curls that would not be tamed–Dad decided that there must be SOMETHING in the car to pull them back. He returned with an improvisational hair accessory and E’s face was uncovered. I cannot say which I prefer.
Eventually we gave in to E’s quiet pleas to play on the playground and did some more shooting over there. She loved the swing and slide. It was fun to shoot on the playground and reminded me what a little universe the playground is for small people. Everything just their size, it must be so reassuring in a world where you are always miniature.
And then these smart parents did a couple of photos together. Well, it is completely clear where E got her grin and good looks.
I had a ton of fun with you guys! Hope that you love your preview!
