America's Next Top Model

We had such nice weather last week, that we tried taking Alaina to the park to get some pictures of her.
There was a spot I wanted to use, that would show the stream in the background, but the sun wouldn't be shining on Alaina's face or at my camera. However, when we got there, we found that lots of people were taking advantage of the nice day and there were kids playing in the spot I wanted to use.


We tried this spot, but the sun was shining in her eyes.



We turned around so the camera was facing the sun, but then she didn't want to hold herself up.



Then she decided to chew on her arm...



And then, she just wouldn't keep her hand out of her mouth!
After all this she started to get fussy and sick of us repositioning her. I guess we'll have to wait on that modeling gig!

What a beautiful, darling little girl, Mari! I really like these photos. Often I prefer the spontaneous (uncooperative posing) pics of my grandkids to the posed ones. I think the ones with her chewing her arm and then her hand are adorable! :>)

Beth said...

ALL of these are so "real" and sweet. (Personally, I like them better than the "professional-looking" ones.)

What a precious little baby, makes me want to hold her as my littlest grand"baby" is now over 2 years old and neither of my children want to give me a new little one. Haha! That's okay though, I'm loving on my 5 grandchildren every chance I get and I have a feeling you're doing the same! Enjoy her!

This made me laugh out loud, Mari!! I think the pictures are wonderful! Every time Sam and Jenn post cute pics of Sammy they always assure me that they had to take at least ten in order to get one good one.

Oh the joys! That sounds like it was fun for about two minutes. LOL
That's a nice spot. Try going later or early.

I love it when babies chew on their arms and hands.

These may not be exactly what you were hoping for, but I think they turned out great!
