Dolores Neilson

She so cute, Penny!! I see her in alot of pics...she quite the willing model!

My daughter hates to model!! She wants to do what she wants to do instead of feeling pressured to smile and pose for me. Now we negotiate a "contract" with each shoot! She usually wants books (or money) and I want the shot so it works out better now. #82472

Ahh Dolores! Things are a bit deceiving. All the shots of her were taken the same day within one hour. It was a paid job. She was kind of willing for a little while, but once she changed into the ballerina outfit she started dancing around the room at 40 mph! I had to trick her into holding still long enough to pull off a couple of shots. It really only worked once (with Lil Angel).

I bribe my daughter now too. It only works on occasion. In a rare moment she will pose for me. It's okay that she doesn't cooperate all the time. I've captured some wonderful personality in my attempts to get a posed shot.

Anyway, thanks for taking time to comment. You know I love your work! #82525
