Strike a Pose

Since about age two, Ava has been horrible sitting still and smiling for pictures. However, we recently had a small breakthrough. If we ask Ava to strike a pose for the camera, she suddenly gets more focused on having her picture taken (albeit she still sometimes struggles with looking at the camera).

Sometimes the results are a bit sassy...

...other times sweet and innocent.

Some poses are standoffish...

...while others are inviting.
Many of the poses are quite silly...
...whereas others are quite serious.
She even works some dance moves into a few of her poses. Here's high fifth position...
...and here's a tap pose.
Now if only we could get her to smile for the camera.

I like the one where she is bent over, looks a little robotic :)
