Every so often, I'll photograph a family or a group, and a child will just take over. This past weekend, that child was Gracie. As the 3rd child in a family with 4 kids, I was struck by how easily and effortlessly Gracie stole the show. Older brother and sister were more concerned with each other or whether our session was over (they had better things to do than pose for portraits, they had friends to meet and games to play!). And baby sister was still too young to know who I was or why I was following her around. She just wanted mommy and daddy. But Gracie knew. And Gracie captivated me. She smiled for me, laughed with me, struck some poses, and showed me why even though she's 3rd out of 4, she will NEVER suffer from lack of attention! Gracie was simply amazing!
Her stunning beauty certainly helped too! Wow! Dad, you're sure gonna have your hands full with this beauty! Thanks Gracie for a wonderful portrait date! Like I already warned your mom, I may be borrowing you from time to time. My camera simply LOVED you!
