So the Croatian seaside is harder to find that you might think – especially if the boys in the car are looking harder for a colosseum than the seaside. ;o) On our day trip to Croatia, we finally found a piece of seaside just as the sun was setting. Julia was our model for the day and she did very well showing us her “serious European model” side. What do you expect? It’s tough being two and dragged around by a bunch of adults! I don’t know why we’re all so obsessed with making people smile for a camera anyway. There’s something very natural about a subtle pleasant look.

Meet Julia –



and Julia’s mom and dad…



Even the best European models crack a smile for the camera sometimes. :o)



Hope you’ve enjoyed them! We”ll be travelling home today from Mexico and I’m so excited about all of the fantastic images we have to share with you guys! Talk soon!

    You and I are *like this*, B-rad. Obviously I didn’t write this post… or it would have been titled “100 reasons why colosseums are awesome — and some family stuff, too”

    Julia reminds me of the little girl I used to nanny for. She would give me that look too when I held the weird black box to my face all the time and begged for her to smile. These turned out really good… she showcased a lot of personality with little effort. Can’t wait to see the underwater bat cave photos!! :D
