But yesterday Connor and I went for a photoshoot. It was free. I had my makeup done and my hair styled. The studio part was actually pretty fun but the long day with a 2 year old wasn't especially, more so because of my being ridiculously tired than any bad behaviour on his part, and I was glad to be home and in bed by 8 pm.
I took this photo of Connor (just before the photographer came back into the room and told me I wasn't allowed to take photos in the studio (and I'd amassed loads by then because she'd been gone so long!!!!!). I've used the Indigo Mill October challenge and have a LO all ready to go for that and SLYMI this week, but I had no photo. Essentially the LO is the story of Connor at 3. I was going for a happy, smiley photo because that's what he is. But what I've actually caught here is still so Connor. This is his tired face. This is Connor zoning out for a minute. You'll notice the vacant look and the staring eyes. This look is the one that is usually followed by the words 'I'n not tired' (and yes I meant to put 'I'n' and not 'I'm' because that is what he says!). It does not work with the LO I have created, but it is a truely Connor photo nonetheless. So out comes the camera again today to try to capture a more alive still of Connor at 3.
