I did a mini shoot in Stockport with two little mini minxes. Cameron (a la onset of chicken pox) and Charlotte (who hates the world when maltesers are not being shared) made me laugh so much. Honestly, I just love the drama in children. I got to meet their mum who is a regular over at HSMS for the first time too. Upon meeting her I was absolutely stunned because she is the spit of Anna Bowkis and has the same nature as her too. They say that you have a double somewhere and Rachel and Anna must have been seperated at birth.
Rachel and I got to know each other a bit whilst I tried to build up a relationship with the wee ones. Charlotte was convinced that Id be watching Lion King with her (her millionth time, I guess!!) but we had more pressing issues with a trip to the park. I offered to take Charlotte with me in my car so I could really work my photographers magic on her and learned this on the way:
1. When she grows up she wants to be big and strong and maker her own breakfast.
2. She wants 2 babies. Four of them to be girls and 3 boys. Great mathmetician there, Charl.
3. She hates the world when she can't have sweeties.
4. She loves me.
I was dying with laughter in the car, I seriously love kids mentality.
So anyway, here are the best catches of the day.....
Reflections are something Im really enjoying now, Charl was most obliging :)
Puddles and new groovy skirts and shoes just don't mix. But temptation is just too much for 4 year olds!
Here is Cam the man - big brown pools of chocolatey eyes.
Who laughed one minute..............
and cried the next. Poor lil dude was starting with chicken licken pox.
A tender moment. I say moment and I mean moment.
Charl got a little playful before decalring she hated having her photo taken. No shocks there then, Charl!
Another tender moment. This lasted approximately 5 seconds. Fast shutter speeds in low light conditions are a must - I tell ya!
Ph yes, work your charm you gorgous little girl..... what a sweetheart!
My absolute favvo shot for today...... I love it when kids have a real good think.
I can't wait to meet these two superstars agan - total value for money in the entertainment department and sweet sugary goodbye kisses to boot.
