I read that if you give people props (especially children), they can be easier to photograph. It helps them relax and gives them something to do with their hands. And it's true! It is really hard to get good pictures of Emma because a lot of the time she runs away or ducks to avoid the camera. But when I gave her the umbrella, it became fun! I was very pleased. I took over 300 pictures between her and Eden in a span of about 10 minutes. There were SO MANY keepers! It was hard to choose which ones to edit from the bunch. Editing photos can be somewhat time consuming, BUT since I'm not able to walk....:(.....there isn't much else I can do. And it makes me happy.
So here's our prop. The umbrella.
