    ruh roh!

  2. Marti says:

    Miles refused to wear her shoes, didn’t he.

  3. Heather's Garden says:

    Back off slowly showing you accept her dominance by lowering your chin and not making direct eye contact.

    Chris says: Yes, noted.

  4. Angella says:

    I. Love. This.

    Chris says: Thank you, Angella

  5. nicole case says:

    cutest haircut! that’s the look i give my brothers, and now my fiance! ;)

  6. the planet of janet says:

    be afraid, be VERY afraid!

  7. Angela says:

    Either the little bro stopped cooperating or you told her it was time for bed, right?

  8. Stephanie says:

    Oh dear. Don’t make eye contact, and try to stay calm.

  9. Cary says:

    Future boyfriends beware! She has BROTHERS and will not take your crap.

  10. Ramblin'Red says:

    Such a senior yearbook picture, for sure.

  11. Lisa says:

    Oh my gosh - you are so in trouble with this one!

  12. Jennifer says:

    Love this! But she is a little scary.

    Chris says: She really isn’t. She said to take the photo of her making this face.

  13. Sherah says:

    What a capture!

  14. Camilla says:

    Cor, great shot but the photo-treatment is a little scary! Not sure i like the darkened skin effect. And you know, her expression adds to the fear factor, lol. :P

    Chris says: I sort of like the scary photo treatment. :-) Not for EVERY photo, of course.

  15. Brigitte says:

    MOOOOooom! Enough with the camera already!

    (just guessing) And I see by her little turning-purple arms that in usual-kid fashion, she is ignoring the fact that the house is nearly down to freezing, all for the sake of being a ballerina/princess.

  16. Kristie says:

    And just think, that’s *without* any of those pesky hormones that will be coursing through her system in about ten years.

  17. peepnroosmom says:

    Ooooh! Look at that face.

  18. Woman with Kids says:

    That is quite the look. I’m thinking the teenage years are just popping in to say hello.

  19. Caren Story says:

    that is a great picture! I should take some of my daughter like that. She is 3, and already getting an attitude. She crosses her arms and pouts like that…I know she’s mad when she does it, but she’s just so darn cute. Its hard not to laugh! :)

  20. genpoco says:

    Having five brothers and no sisters, I completely relate to the look she is casting. Hold your own, little one.

  21. Julie says:

    I love a girl with her own sense of style. Now give her a guitar! :)

    Chris says: She has one. Of course I think it only has two strings left on it.

  22. Trudie says:

    Oh my!
    This is one shot she will not want you to show to future boyfriends. Give it to her when she’s old enough to use it for her own best!

  23. mom8k says:

    another one for the wedding slide show

  24. Lisa says:

    Love that picture…and her purple bed! :)

  25. Brittany says:

    This is a great picture. Just wait, I’m sure the looks will become even better….

  26. Law Student Hot Mama says:

    Woah . . . . that’s definitely a dominance look. I second Heather’s Garden and add that I hope she doesn’t throw her own feces at you. Though, then again, with as many kids as you have I’m sure you’ve had feces thrown at you at least once.

  27. Erin says:

    She is gorgeous!! Looks so grown-up!!

    By the way, is her quilt from the Simply Shabby Chic collection? I have the exact same one, I love how girly it is! I bet she has the prettiest room, and I’m sure you love decorating it.

    Chris says: Yes it is. From target a few years ago.

  28. Jamie AZ says:

    I was just going to say what Trudie did about saving the picture to show her boyfriends. My sons sometimes try to act like this. Laughing in their face is sometimes helpful. :)

  29. Mrs.Busybody says:

    “Mood & ‘tude” exemplified.

  30. Jen says:

    This is the best photo I have ever seen on your site…..and you have a lot of great photos. This shot begs to be matted, framed, and hung on a wall.

    Chris says: Well, thank you very much.

  31. jewelee says:

    who shrunk Janice Dickinson?!

  32. jewelee says:

    oops! i meant shrank

  33. The Simple Family says:

    I can’t wait till a wayward boyfriend pisses her off. I’m not sure he should be more scared of, the six brothers or her. I’m voting on her.

  34. Jules says:

    She has the pout down to perfection.

  35. kalisah says:

    I’m pretty sure you could sell that shot to Avril for an album cover and make MILLIONS!!!

  36. Kritter Krit says:

    No worries about this one taking care of herself in a crowd of punks. Yeeeeeikes!

    Great photo!!!

  37. Anna says:

    Oh my! Isn’t that a glimpse into life with a teenager? Love the photo.

    Also…do remember the name of the company that did your photo book? I wanted to make one as a gift and I thought yours was quite stunning (although that probably had as much to do with your photography skills as the book itself..but anyway…)

    Chris says: Blurb.

  38. Mary W says:

    I’m diggin the purple bed!!!!!

  39. Amanda - VintageDutchGirl says:

    Oooh, she’s a fiesty one!

  40. Julie Stiles Mills says:

    I really love your photos. They always tell a story. Really. Really. GOOD

    Chris says: Thank you.

  41. Ms. Carson says:

    She reminds me of Elizabeth the paper bag princess - but with jewels and a tutu instead of a paper bag. No doubt she too could save the prince.

  42. Marcie says:

    I LOVE this photo. I saw it and immediately told my husband to come look at it. His exact words, “WOW! She is gorgeous.” My thoughts exactly…

  43. Lisa Stone says:

    Apple. Tree. Etc. And a book cover, I swear, a book cover.

  44. Camilla says:

    >>Chris says: I sort of like the scary photo treatment.

    Lol, yes, maybe in this case it nicely compliments the mood. :P

  45. Dana says:

    The Gilda Radner as Candy Slice look!

  46. Lisa says:

    *lurker delurking*

    Love this photo. Where did you find such a wonderful bed? I’m in the process of redoing my 4 yr old daughter’s room and she needs an actual bed with headboard/footboard, not just a bed frame. I’d love to look into such an interesting one :)

  47. pickel says:

    Absolutely Fabulous. She will be a beautiful young lady.

  48. Susan says:

    She is darling.

    I’m amazed, however, how many comments you get critiquing your parenting and/or photo taking skills.
