embrace the camera

We are back home from Grammy's, which means it is back to days of just me and my girl.  Well, Chris gets off at 3, so the days aren't too long :o).

Ryann has been loving her mardi gras style beads for quite some time.  However now, she brings them to me so I can put them on both of us.  She makes sure I am wearing some.  It is too funny, and she always has so much to say while we are playing with the beads.

nothing like rockin' your mardi gras beads at 7:30 am right?

Side note, although it is adorable that when I tell Ryann to say cheese, or I pull out a camera, I get her scrunchy nose face... someone is going to have to teach her how to really smile.  Sometimes it is hard to tell the difference between happy and I'm about to cry :o).  But it is incredibly funny.

Ellen did the scrunchy face for pictures as well. The photographer that took our church directory photo told me to tell her to smile, wait until she is done scrunching, and then capture a smile/pleasant face after the scrunch. It wasn't ever her cute natural smile, but it was better than nothing! Now she won't even look at me when I want to take her picture!

I love the scrunchy face but if you want her to give you a dazzling grin ask her to "Show me your teeth!" I will warn you that at first these shots may look as though your child is preparing to eat you for her next meal but as they learn to relax they'll learn how to smile more naturally! Give it a shot!

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us! You two look adorable in your beads ready to party!

Sincerely,
Christine aka The Stampin' Ninja
