My Photo Someones Quote: Day 241

I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.

Angela – Bekkies & Boudjies Christmas Shoot

Posting the last and most difficult shoot of all…

Little Angela had a very hard time with the shoot. They brought her the morning and she started screaming, they took her away let her sleep and later they brought her back again same story she cried. If I even move or look in her direction she started crying. The teachers at the Daycare tried everything to calm her down but nothing worked and we were running out of time… I have been shooting since 9 O’clock the morning and it was after 3 O’clock and I was very tired. But I did  not give up, I took some photo’s of her while she was sitting there. I did not say boo or baa because I did not want her to cry. Her teacher moved her from the chair to the ground and she put on the hat and shoes….

I tried my best to get rid of the red eyes and red blotches on her little face…. I know when I get her in a better mood she will make the most stunning photo’s. She is such a beautiful little girl it broke my heart that I could not win this little one’s trust.

Jordan – Bekkies & Boudjies Christmas Shoot

I am still working on Bekkies & Boudjies Daycare’s Christmas shoot. Shoot number 23 finished 3 to go…

Jordan was one of the last 4 little ones who we tried to photograph since early morning. In the end it took nearly 20 minutes just to get him calm and to trust me. I went and sat by him till I saw he was calmer before I tried photographing him. With every new pose I had to go and sit by him to ensure him it’s okay.  Even though he was crying allot I think we got some pretty lovely photo’s of him lying down…

Nathan – Bekkies & Boudjies Christmas Shoot

I am still working on Bekkies & Boudjies Daycare’s Christmas shoot. Shoot number 22 finished 4 to go…

Nathan is another blond curly hair boy with blue eyes. This little boy took his photo shoot very serious and did not want to look at the camera and smiled. Instead he bowed his head and gave a sly little smile… Like all little ones he hated anything on his head.

Eben & Niane – Bekkies & Boudjies Christmas Shoot

I am still working on Bekkies & Boudjies Daycare’s Christmas shoot. Shoot number 17 finished 9 to go…

Eben and Niane are siblings. Eben really enjoyed playing with the fake presents. He however did not want to hold his little sister at all.  He gave me one chance to click and then up he jumped up and off he went…

I don’t know how old little Niane is, but she was adorable and her facial expressions changed constantly….2 3 1BB_59714 56

Little Hayden did not say boo or baa. She was another one of our serious little ones. I did manage to get a wee little smile from her but that was that.  After the smile it was back to serious business… Face it people it’s hard work to pose for photo’s….
