Photography and Travel in Bandon, Oregon
Meet my nieces. Kaylie (7) is in the pink hoodie and Riley (5) is in the polka dot hoodie. And this is how they like to pose for photos.

They are super sweet kids and were totally up for being my little models. Actually, they fought over it. Oh, I love when sibling rivalry works to your advantage! However, they were very insistent that they keep their hoods on, particularly Riley. Okay, fine, be gangsta’. I’m no Amy Wenzel anyway. Who am I to try to stylize a shoot? It’s just nice that they would smile for my camera.
Er…kind of nice. Ri’s Sproulie chin was lost in her neck. When I was reviewing all the images, I couldn’t stop laughing at this one. It’s just So Riley!
Uncle Seth said you look like a chubby 15-year-old, Ri! Not that there’s anything wrong with being 15 or chubby; but, you’re a stick-figured 5-year-old. And the hood! Ah, I almost want to print and frame this one just because it makes me love you all that much more.
However, I think this one turned out much better. See! You do have a Sproulie chin!
And you’re so sweet, even with that malcontent-like hood covering your golden locks of hair.
Kaylie, you melt my heart. I wonder if your loose front tooth has fallen out yet. I still can’t believe the Tooth Fairy leaves you FIVE DOLLARS for your teeth! I think you need to treat me to Scoop next time I visit you in Santa Barbara.
And here’s a gangsta’ one of you.
I promise I took tons of photos of both the girls, but it’s a little more than impossible avoiding the Sproul Grin. (Please see Photo 1 for an example).
That’s why I’m particularly proud of this one. It was Ri’s job to make Kay laugh. Now that’s the kind of Sproulie smile I like :)
I can’t wait until next year when we have another Sproul girl in the photos. Okay, maybe boy…but I think girl ;)
