When working with children, I try to gently lead them to do what I want them to do next. I will ask, "Can you lay on your belly? Can you sit cross legged?".... you get the idea. Brooke was more than willing to look pretty, but had her own ideas about posing. More than once, I asked her to do something, she would pause to think about it, then tell me with a smile "No. I don't really want to." She was so cute. Not that any amount of posing would change how adorable she is naturally!
