Maren is smart, lovely, curious and............... the energizer bunny!
She is one of the fastest moving kids I have ever seen!
Over, around, through, under, what's behind here? All at the speed of light!
I just need one, ONE photo of her with her 7 month old brother.
We tried singing, dancing, books, toys, funny noises, fairy wands, bribery, snacks, balls and all and any of the tricks I have gathered in my years of shooting.
Then I had an idea.
An image from an old Rodney Dangerfield movie popped into my head.
It was the one where he coached the girls soccer team.
In order to get the daydreaming little girl to look at the soccer ball he put butterfly stickers on it.
I ran into my packaging cupboard and grabbed my butterfly stickers.
I stuck two on little brother's back and scooped Maren up next to him and told her to grab them.
It is a simple photo of two kids on a chair but I am extremely proud of it!
Thanks Rodney! LOL
