Six Month Portraits

On Friday I took Emma to have her picture taken at Kiddie Kandids at Babies R Us. I had been there a couple of times with my friend Shelly and her son, Damon, and they've turned out well. Damon smiled and they got some great pictures. Emma, however, was having none of that. Our photographer was an older woman who tried hard, but Emma looked shocked and nervous more than anything else. (Frankly, I couldn't totally blame her--as hard as the photographer tried, I probably wouldn't have smiled for her either). I think that I could have gotten her to smile, but I had to sit on the side within arm's reach of her at all times. (Memo to self: next time bring another adult). Even with all of the bad shots--we were there for 45 minutes--we did manage to get a few where her mouth is open, so it kind of looks like shes smiling. See for yourself:

Thanks! We're fans of the mohawk look. Now if it were only thick enough for some barettes...

Very cute pictures! We have loved The Picture People, if you ever check them out. They do all their shots on the floor so you can be behind the photographer making all kinds of faces :D

I think she looks SO cute! I would never have guessed that they were having a hard time making her smile.

She's a dollie! I like the one where she is clapping. Cute dress, too!
