Taylor is about as hyper as any 4 year old can get. My sister asked how I was able to get her to cooperate with me and I said “I didn’t, I just let her be and do her own thing!” (with the exception of me handing her a lollipop.. haha) There is no doubt that when you let children be, you can get emotion, expressions and manerisms that continue to be with them as adults. For example, my sister and brother in law tell me that she tends to rest her chin on her hands, so when I saw these photos again, I saw them with different eyes. It’s true, on most of these photos she is resting her face on her hand :). I captured Taylor being Taylor. So if you are a mom (or aunty), take your time, sit down at their level, create conversation and play while you take pictures of your child (or niece), you will be surprised at what wonderful moments and cute little things you just might capture in camera :).
