The Zumhoff’s

I’m not sure when I’ve ever had such a serious little client. Maya, who turns two in December, was a hard peanut to crack. We planned an afternoon session so she would be nice and rested from a long nap. With company in town, however, she had to settle for a short car ride nap instead. She awoke melancholy and tired, but while serious and stingy with the big smiles, she was good as gold and sweet to boot. And speaking of boots, they came all the way from Texas with a 1-gallon hat to match her dads. Serious or smiling, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that Maya is one pretty sweet little girl. Ben and Farrah, thank you for the privilege of photographing your family. 🙂


Even attempts to swing Maya gave us nothin’ — no expression whatsoever.


And then when we stood her up on a rock, this is what we got. Attitude.


But then slowly but surely she started warming up.



Then BAM, dimples and all!
