camera shy

Me: Hey Tallulah, How 'bout if we get a photo of your beautiful smile today?

T: No way. I don't like that camera thing. Nuh uh.

Me: It's not so bad. Everyone wants to see your smile!

T: Don't make me, please.

Me: Aww. How you gonna find your home if you don't smile for pictures?

T: How's this? Can I smile upside down?

Me: Sure, that's cute. But can't you please give me that smile when you're sitting up pretty?

T: Umm .... Still scary. Scary camera!

Me: Okay - How 'bout you hide behind my leg and smile without looking at it?

T: Okay! Here I am! Does this mean my home will find me now?

Me: Yep. You did good.


  1. Try putting a cookie on your nose. Or on her nose!

  2. So cute! Hopefully, it won't be long until she feels the same about the camera that my dog does: it's a type of treat! (Of course, a few actual treats in the presence of the camera may be necessary to help her make the switch.)

  3. she's unfortunately too smart for the treat distraction, but she's learning that she gets mega-love whenever the camera comes around - the ultimate bribe.

    my own Sally never has and never will give it up for the camera. brat!

  4. What a beautiful girl! I love the upside down smile...:)

  5. Cute. Love the upside down smile too. Another beauty.

  6. She is gorgeous and looks so sweet! Love the pictures :)

  7. maybe just ike sally wally you gotta see it to believe it and cherish her goodies all in person... what a cutie pie! i will eat her!

  8. Awwwww what a sweetie I wish i could take her but ive got a whole pack of misfits already

  9. I find it funny that she is Camera Shy as she is such an outgoing girl, full of fun, love and frolic. She is going to be a great addition to a loving home.
