One thing I have learned through the years taking pictures of little ones, or anyone for that matter, is that nothing ever goes quite as planned. I bought a giant number three balloon for Emmalyn’s three year pictures. I thought this would be a great idea for a prop, but I didn’t plan on two things:

  1. A breeze
  2. Emmalyn would not like the balloon

Oh well… it was a good reminder that photo props don’t always work out!

Oh wait… I think I detect a little smile. And the breeze turned the number 3 in the right direction. Not all is lost!
