“Will you take a picture of me?”
On a rare occasion (and on her terms), Teagan will take a great interest in having her photograph made. It typically happens seconds before we have a family of four ready to go for their own portraits. Being the great helper she is, Stef and I have countless “test” shots of Miss T doing her thing. And no matter how much I try to persuade her otherwise, she manages to always get the perfect Chandler Bing smile ready the moment the viewfinder reaches my eye. Funniest thing is, she really thinks she is nailing it. I have never met anyone so proud of a cheeseball smile as Teagan.
Now, I have seen countless parents try everything in the book to get their kids to do anything but the silly smile and I totally get it. Something we are known for is getting that odd look that you rarely see (which may have something to do with me falling, tripping and otherwise making a baffoon of myself), but I gotta say, every time Stef and I see a photograph of Teagan and her C.B. smile, it well…just makes us laugh.
I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
