We have had two separate appointments for pictures with Gavin this week. Last week we did some of just him and then today we did some Christmas pictures and some of just him and Kayla. ( I hadn’t gotten any since he was about 9 months old! ) Gavin did not want to be a part of any of this. He didn’t want to sit, stand still, or smile. He also wanted to hold all of the props used to try to make him smile. I have decided that this is my least favorite age to photograph. At age one, the don’t have to much of an opinion about stuff and they are generally pretty agreeable. At age three, you can bribe them. At two, well nothing works. Thankfully, we had some very good and patient photographers.
He did not want to sit on the stool for this picture. We ended up putting him on the very end of my knees. The didn’t capture pics of him flailing back trying to throw himself off of the stool – thankfully I was holding him!
This one wasn’t too bad, but neither wanted to look at the camera, and Mikayla was not too happy that Gavin was holding the box with the ornament hiding inside.
