Since we were at the beach last week, I thought it would be great to photograph my children. After all, the beach at sunset is spectacular and provides great light for portraits. What the beach can't provide is cooperative attitudes from grumpy little boys.
Not five minutes after being on the beach, our son let us know he needed to use the bathroom. This really frustrates me, because the bathroom is not just a few steps away.....and the "good light" on the beach is dwindling fast.
Can't you just hear him saying, "I neeed to use the bathroooom!"
Once we made it back from the bathroom, he was more cooperative....for a four year old boy. Just check out his expressions in the following series of photos:

Maybe it was worth all the pain of cajoling him.....
