An Impromptu Photo Shoot...

So on Sunday afternoon, I got the fabulous idea that I should take some spring photos of Ella. She's changing so fast & I want to remember how adorable she was at this phase for years to come. And while we were at it, I thought my sister & I could get in a few pictures to send to my parents. I called my sister, told her she needed to shower & wear something neutral. I got Ella bathed & even straightened my own hair. I picked out outfits. I thought we had the whole thing under control... 



We didn't. My sister arrived & I ended up changing my outfit into something more neutral to match what she was wearing. Then, I had to deal with the two dogs who refused to stay in the house while we took photos. Oh, and I had to convince my husband to take the photos of the three of us, which was probably the hardest part of the whole ordeal. There is a reason why professionals make a ton of money to photograph families & children. It's hard work. My sister kept her sunglasses on. I'm posed awkwardlly. Ella has the attention span of a two year old...



So, it's safe to say that I didn't get exactly the photos I'd envisioned. But, I did get some that I am in love with. They're certainly imperfect, but they served their purpose of capturing who Ella is in this moment & making my parents day. Next time I'm paying a professional though! 






And saving my favorite for last...

  2. Taking your own pictures is so HARD! I always want to do it myself and I usually struggle with something (posing us, using the tripod... you name it...) but it's getting better with each try. Your pics are still super cute and I love Ella's adorable outfit!
