The best photographer-YOU
If you read that title and thought I was bragging on my photography skills then you are quite mistaken!
I decided I wanted to get some pictures captured of my girls. I took Anna's picture all the time when she was little and had such fun with it.
Plus, let's be honest-it is very expensive and time-consuming to have professional shots done. And with an 18-month old and 6-week old.....well, it just wasn't sounding very do-able for us right now!
So, over the course of one of our days at home I tried to be intentional about capturing a moment here or there that showed my girl's true character, habits, and personalities.
I set up cute props and got them both dressed in cute outfits. (a major deal around here-they were both out of their jammies and it was still morning time!) :)
Are you noticing how none of the photos (with the exception of the jammy one) includes BOTH girls?
These photos almost turned out to be a disaster.
Actually, scratch that. The ones I attempted with both girls were. a. DISASTER. Anna Ruth truly loves Betsy Grace and wants to show her plenty of attention. So I tried to have Anna Ruth sit on a bigger suitcase next to Betsy Grace. Oh my. Mayhem! Anna started hitting Betsy on the head (thinking she was patting her I guess?) and then was kicking and giggling.
I disciplined her and she just giggled like I'd told a funny joke. So, the photo session with the both of them was officially over. LOL. I like the pictures I got of them individually though!
A lot of times-I think we're the best photographers of our kids because we can catch a look, laugh or smile here and there throughout the day.
