Nathan and Shayla

About a week ago, I met my co-worker, Julie, at the park with her 2 beautiful children.  Nathan is a 3rd grader and Julie adopted him from Guatemala.  Shayla was adopted from China and is in the 1st grade at a Chinese Immersion School.  Shayla is a hoot!  She knows how to strike a pose when the camera is around.  It took a while for her to just play and forget about the camera.  She is definitely not camera shy!  Nathan isn't camera shy either - it's probably because Julie likes to take pictures as well, so they were both used to smiling for the camera.

Nathan was cute here showing me his football stance.  What you can't see is that he had found a 4 leaf clover and he had it in his mouth like a toothpick, and was calling it his good luck.

  I think this is such a cute picture of Shayla.  I had her doing jumps and twirls trying to get a spontaneous smile instead of her posed smile (which is still cute).

I have lots more to post later, in fact some of my favorite pictures were from the last 5 minutes of the session, can't wait to show you those!
