My daughter received a violin for her birthday last year. She was ecstatic when she opened it. After a few months of lessons, I convinced her we needed to get some violin portraits done. Finally, she agreed. And let me curl her hair. And dress her. And take her to a fun location. And then…. The uncooperativeness comes out. I even bribed her with a shake from In-n-Out, which she still got even though she didn’t smile for me. Anyways, many thanks to Grandma Geri for the violin and to Samantha, the best teacher ever!
