A couple of days ago, I decided to take the kids to a nearby waterfall for some pictures. I really just wanted some shots of the girls, so I could blow one up, frame it, and put it in the girls' room. Well, I didn't check the weather before going, since it was a spontaneous decision to go. That was a big mistake. Since it had rained the day before, it was really humid and everything was muddy. What was I thinking??
To make matters worse, it was sunny. Outdoor pictures need to be taken on overcast days, especially when you're doing transracial photography. So almost none of the pics looked good. Either everyone was squinting because I had them in the sun, or you couldn't see Maya at all because the sun was behind her.
As we were leaving the park, I decided to get a quick shot of the babies. I told them to hold hands and realizing how bored they looked, asked them to look at each other. As soon as Liddy looked at Daniel, he started dancing for her. It was so funny! This picture really shows their personalities- Lydia is standing still, looking very demure, and Daniel's dancing around crazy-like.
