My oldest daughter recently turned twelve and I thought I’d take some photos of her to celebrate. This did not go as well as planned. First off, I should say that my daughter does not like getting her photos taken. She’s always shied away from the camera. Perhaps it’s photographer’s child syndrome, (Yes, its a real thing, ask any photog mom! lol), but it’s very much in her personality to not be in the spotlight. She likes to draw and create stories and she loves heavier music. So I took her out in her Metallica t-shirt and just let her be her. I was able to get some smiles from a normally serious kid, even though her sister kept photo bombing and so did our dog. I was able to get all these expressions from her in 12 minutes time. I thought that was a crazy coincidence!!
