Today is Emily's picture day at her pre-school.
Yesterday we drove to a local children's salon to get her bangs cut. Since she had to peer through her bangs or sweep them aside to see, I figured it was due time.
My daughter who gives me that cheesy Cheshire grin when I tell her to smile for the camera, whose eyes cross even with her little bifocals on, and who is incapable it seems of sitting still will sit in the hands of a professional photographer without me and I can honestly say I am fine with that.
When we visit the photo studio for family pics, it takes a lot of corralling, animals dancing on our heads, sneezes causing the animals to fall off said heads, and so on to get a few good shots of each of the girls. It is often a stressful event and probably why I want to have a photographer come to us in the future to take pictures, preferably outside.
All I can say is God bless any photographer of pre-schoolers. Twenty-four kids in one picture sounds like a daunting task. Not to mention the patience needed to photogragh twenty-four kids individually in the span of two hours.
I can see it now. My daughter will be the one with the silly face. Just like she was the one who couldn't stop dancing during the Christmas children's program and proceeded to lift her dress and flash the audience.
We were asked to choose one of five poses. There was no option six that said whatever looks best or whichever one in which my kid cooperates.
I can't wait to see these pics.
Even if they are silly pics, they will fit right in with her personality. She's a natural ham.
