Day 1 of shoot: The teachers tell me Avery will have nothing to do with posing for the photographer. He's coming back tomorrow and they're going to try again, right after breakfast, so hopefully her spirits will be higher.
Day 2 of shoot: The teachers tell me Avery allowed them to get her dressed up but when the camera came out she lost it. Now, I'd seen the sample poster by the entrance and I wanted to tell them that I understood. But of course I smiled and said "Awww, that's too bad."

In this one all composure has gone out the window. But can you blame her? It's all a very odd setup, in my opinion (but I know a lot of people love this stuff).
