10 Minute Mall Portraits

Sunday in the Mall was pretty quiet, only a couple or so up until midday, but I finished up doing 29. There were some kids that kept beautifully still... and some that didn't! as well as some interesting adults, and I was able to get a few good portraits.

I haven't been taking photos but think now I'll have to start taking some.

Here is how I like the babies and toddlers to pose!
