Smile Getting The Right Shot...

...isn't easy with a 3 year old, but it's a lot of fun! A small sampling...























And finally, the one Larissa chose herself:



Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Everyone at WetCanvas!

Nicholas, Olga, and Larissa Simmons

Re: Getting The Right Shot...

She's a star. She's Shirley Temple II. Man you are lucky to have a kid who is willing to ham it up for the camera....mine (who is 18 now) used to just cry or cop attitude when going for pictures. I will recommend this to you Nick, every year on the first day of school, click off a couple of snapshots before dropping her off. Year by year you'll get a kick out of the progression. Never got attitude about the first day of school flicks either. , Tradition!!

I love to look back @ old photos of our 2 sons around that age and a little older.

Happy Holiday to you and your family,

Re: Getting The Right Shot...

Wow Nick,she is an angel!

I immediately thought no.5 would make a great painting(if I ever get that claret right) bet many people will want to paint her too!

Merry Christmas and a happy new year to you and your family!
