Don't you love it when they wake up from their naps like this?
Cheeks flushed, eyes bright. Can you see her "grain of rice" tooth in the above picture?
Today I was thinking about pictures. And how I don't have a single "portrait" picture of Ashlyn from JC Penney or Picture People or whatever. I did that for Evyn, usually without really wanting to but feeling like I should because everyone else did. I've kept all the pictures, but none of them are a favorite picture of mine. Except for this one, which is from a session I did with a freelance photographer at our home. And it was expensive.
To be honest, I'm not sure I will wind up doing the Sears/JCPenney studio thing for Ashlyn. And since I can't afford an expensive photographer repeatedly, I think I'll just invest the money in a nice camera and cross my fingers that my own work is good enough.
What have you done for your babies' pictures? (and let's be honest, this is also a thinly-veiled attempt at feeling better about not doing studio portraits for Ashlyn - so please, please tell me I'm not the only one who skipped Sears).
