We got possibly the most immobile photographer I have ever seen. She just sat or kneeled where she was. She didn't try to follow Tom or move with him. And she had a hand-held SLR! I have never seen anything like it. I was trying to give her a chance though I had my misgivings during the shoot. When I saw the pictures they were just lackluster. No exuberance. Just some little grins.

All the photos on this site are pictures I took of Tom. And I do click off tons of shots to get good pictures. That's what you have to do! Especially when you have a kids that doesn't keep his eyes open a lot and moves like lightning. I really work to get pictures by shooting down at his level. I'm on the floor right in front of him, just clicking away. I guess I expected her to work a little harder to get some good pictures. I feel like the opportunity was there and she missed it.
