Some of the first pictures I send them will surely be from our little "photoshoot" last Sunday. We've had some sessions scheduled, and 3 times we've had to change them! For now, Stella is too small to hold Lucy, and Lucy doesn't do much except lay there. It makes outdoor pictures a bit tough. My mom and I thought we'd give it a try and had the whole thing planned out with props and all. Several hours and many setbacks later we finally got to a park and thought things would improve... they did not. One thing after another went "wrong" and we laughed until we cried. We didn't get any pictures that I love from a photography point, but there are so many I love because they capture the day and the fun that we had. I'll take that over a session with beautiful pictures anytime! Here are a couple:
Yeah, I tried to get the "feet" shot... it's ok, but nothing like I'd envisioned.
We finally got Lucy to pick her head up but you can tell she's still not too happy with us. When I first put her down she just face planted and kicked her little feet screaming. More hysterical laughing from my mom and I. I think we were crying by now and there may have been a few ever so charming snorts by one or both of us.
Jim liked the flower pictures, but he also said, "you can tell she was being a stinker." This was the last attempt and she'd had quite enough. She was still trying to be good though, what a sweet sweet girl.
Jim took Stella to the Father Daugther dance for the second year this past weekend. They got to take the big truck after they washed it together which was a big deal to Stella. I wanted a picture of Jim with both of his girls and Stella just HAD to be touching both of them. This one just makes my heart all warm and gooey!
Nothing eventful about this one, just a little glimpse of Lucy being entertained by Stella. For some reason, I just love this one though!
