I sought Allie out. She was the flower girl at Bo and Elizabeth's wedding and everytime I approached her with my camera she ran in the opposite direction. Never backing down from a challenge, I knew I needed to become a little more deceptive. So I would stand back and pretend I wasn't shooting and try to catch her. She was a little too smart for me though. Avoiding me at all cost. Thankfully, her mother intervened and made her get her picture taken. I knew I had hit the jackpot when I got home and saw her pictures. She never once smiled at me and her pictures were stunning and moving. I started then recuriting her for a session. I wasn't dissappointed. I hope I get to shoot her every year until she marries and then maybe on that day she'll be comforable enough with me to smile.
Here's a little slideshow of Allie
