Today was another full day of photography, starting with some portraits of a brother (aged 2) and sister (aged 4). The girl was a perfect model; smiled sweetly and posed patiently. The boy was a whirlwind of energy, barely ever pausing. He was the real challenge.

After about 100 shots, we placed him on a wooden bench with a backdrop of bamboo (happened to be someone's outdoor parking space, I believe) and I think he stayed still because he couldn't figure out how to get down off the bench by himself. Here not only is he smiling, looking up and staying still, he's struck an almost GQ-ish pose and expression. You can tell right away he's a mischievous one!
