55/365-2 Predictable



One of my goals this year is to make sure that I get at least one photo of each of the girls every month.  This is easy with Erin because she is a willing model.  Brooke, on the other hand, is quite the opposite.  When it comes to photographing her, I just have to go for it knowing that it has the potential to be an unpleasant experience for all involved.

There are several things about my goal of a photo a month of her and this image in particular that are quite predictable.
  • It will be in the last few days of the month when I get her photograph.
  • She will always have this "whatever" expression.
  • She will never look directly at me .
  • She will never smile.
  • In the evening she is almost always sitting in front of her computer at the kitchen island.
  • There is usually some book(s) and a bowl of something, or some previous something, nearby.
  • She is always wearing black and white so the pictures of her are likely to always be black and white.
  • I am going to accomplish my goal whether she likes it or not.
