Armed with this info we were off to Candler Park/Freedom Trail. When we reached the house Mom (we'll refer to her as Lady M) was on her way out the door to work. I had to find a quick distraction for Evelyn. That's when I discovered that my assistant's Santa hat had lost its magic. So it was on to plan B, fruit. Success at last! Evelyn loves lemons, limes, and bananas. Thank the heavens up above, the kitchen was stocked full of 'em.
O.K. I could keep on like this but I will tell you how the rest of the day really went down. If you know anything about my childhood, I grew up with 6 siblings. 5 sisters and 1 brother. If you add my mom, that makes 6 women in one house!!!
Evelyn went through more emotions in two hours than I saw 6 women go through in 10 years! However, I'm glad to say that our mission was accomplished. See for yourself below. Well, actually Evelyn accomplished her mission. By the end of the shoot she had me watching her daily colorful "pick me up." The Teletubbies won me over! We were all ready for a nap after this one.
Evelyn - You're a ROCK STAR!!!
