This girl is a role model for sure. Cara has put a lot of work into accomplishing goals; she was recently promoted to a Junior Girl Scout! This was our first session together. Her mom and older sister came too, it was a blast! All 4 of us had good laughs about all sorts of topics, including "flirty faces". It was a great girl themed evening!
The session started out simple with the GS salute. Then came the cookies - whole BIG boxes of lots of little boxes of Samoas and Thin Mints. These things are my favorite - frozen or room temp, there's no discrimination. I could make myself sick on them. Excuse me while I digress into cookie dreams.
ok... I'm back.
The session progressed quickly into cuter "girly" poses and more laughing about which direction was left or right.
"Scoot your hips to the left." I'd direct. She'd scoot to the right. "Your other left." She'd go right some more.
Eventually we got it which led to this super cute shot below...
Then things really got fun - the idea of replicating the Heisman Trophy was hatched. Cara was a complete trouper and let me grunge her face with the black-out technique used on my ball players. Y'all should have seen us trying to get the pose - I, for one, am not a football star by any stretch of the imagination. After really studying a googled pic, we figured it out together. It's not easy to be a running, stiff armed, statue guarding Girl Scout Somoas. But like the title of the post proclaims, Cara is one tough cookie and nailed it!
The end of her session fished with more out of the (cookie) box inspirations. We did a couple of shots perfecting "Rosy the Riveter" pose while holding one of those big boxes, and tough girl with arms crossed and a foot on the other big box with lots of little boxes of cookies inside. I love that she had fun and left laughing; it's an experience she won't forget.
