A Stolen Moment?

Anja and Isabel, having spent their entire life looking through my camera lens, have now settled into a very steady love/hate relationship with the camera. They now usually scream and run when the camera is uncapped, mostly since they are at an age  when they are naturally gaining a generous sense of self-awareness. However, they are also still pretty vain and love to see images of themselves in the tiny viewfinder. 

Last night I had one of those rare moments when the girls actually brought me the camera to capture an image they had conjured (most likely Anja). The image below is my favorite from the shots I took. The image looks like it was stolen by the passing photographer, in reality it was staged by Anja, I was merely the operations guy! As a Dad though, an image like this simply melts the heart!!
