Vent: Your child cannot keep their eyes open!
Well we all know I'm an aspiring photographer. I'm also a mommy, the Team Mom for all of Kylie's sports teams. So every season I offer 3 options for Team Pictures-1) we hire the "sports photographer", 2) we set a day and time and parents bring their own cameras, or 3) I will take them with my camera. Option 3 always wins, and I don't charge a dime... I do it for the team because it's a nice thing to do. Well this summer I took our team softball photos, and the individuals came out awesome!! I also took a million group shots to make sure we got a good one... well there is one child who closed her eyes in EVERY SINGLE ONE. I counted, we said cheese, we did the "one, two, three, open your eyes" in case it was a bright sun issue (it wasn't) and this child closed her eyes every time. Finally I realized I was not going to get a shot with her actually looking at my camera, so I called it a night. The rest of the kids who were able to smile and look at my cam normally (see every other child) were getting antsy and wanted to run around and play sports, not stand in one spot and smile. I sent a link with all of the best shots of the day so parents could decide which team photo they liked best and download that one to print or do whatever with. Well, the mom of the child that cannot keep her eyes open is upset about it. And I'm annoyed. EVERY OTHER CHILD (15 total) has a million other awesome group shots, alert, looking at the cam, smiling, eyes open... the problem was not me, it was her child!! LOL- I just wanted to vent my frustration.
