When you are four

Sometimes when you are four, you don’t want your picture taken. Maybe you are just shy around strangers. Maybe you are tired or not feeling great. What’s the big fuss?

Little Emily is shy, and she might not feel 100%.  The last night her Mom brought her to a  photographer, she didn’t want any part of it. She refused to smile.

When Emily and I met, I could tell she was shy, so first we let her watch another child have a portrait session. Then, we just talked. Emily had fun and got a few photos taken with no pressure. You know what? Her favorite color is purple, and her favorite movie is Frozen. She can also sing her ABCs, very quietly.

If you are shy, it’s okay. No pressure.
