Auntie Colleen needed pictures of kids with paint-covered hands for her website. I did a couple paint and photo sessions with the kids, and they were bemused to find their mother painting their hands instead of wiping them. These are the best. The ones with Maria didn't come out. It's surprisingly tricky to get a kid to look cheerful, sit in good light, and point her palm at the camera! The smile comes from looking at the paint on the palm, I suppose. In the first picture of Loulou, she's doing the "Here is the church, here is the steeple" hand game. I'm glad to have caught it on camera.
