Well, here we go. The first shot published from my 5 days shooting in Orlando earlier this month. This one is also right at the start of the Minilypse event on the first day of shooting. So here I am, the first photog to shoot with this lovely but very young model who just felt so intimidated by the whole thing that, despite her mom’s reassurance, she wouldn’t look at the camera or even smile a little. Note to self: befriend young ones before taking their picture. Or bring candy, or stories, or toys. And don’t shoot first. Wait ’til they are having fun. She ended up doing very nice shots with my pal Lorraine later in the day, but this shot was it for me: I quickly moved on to adult subjects for the rest of the wonderful day.
