After five weeks being photographed daily, Vanilla Bean is now quite familiar with the black thing called the camera. Wherever I put her, she initially scans her vicinity and looks at me. If she sees that my hands are empty, she starts exploring and sniffing. However, if she sees that my right hand holds a camera in front of her, brings out her “cute mode” and she starts posing. It’s as if she knows what’s expected of her and enjoys when she’s being praised for her performance. Here’s some of her cute poses.
