My daughter’s daycare does “school” photos twice a year. I sent her to school with her Easter dress, hoping to buy a cute pose for the grandparents to hang on their wall. We ended up with four proofs – the one everyone liked the most was the one with a giant tear in her eye. She cried the entire time! So, I set up a sheet and had an impromptu photo shoot in the middle of our dining room right while we were all trying to get our Easter meal together. (The light was good!) Luckily my family expects no less of me – they were patient and supportive and kept cooking right around us. Lil’ Miss K wasn’t very smiley since I was delaying her lunch and nap, but I still got a few cute shots.
Last weekend I got to be a part of a truly picture-perfect wedding. The weather was gorgeous (actually, hot for October), the bride was breathtaking, and most importantly – the couple was so obviously in love. A perfect beginning to a beautiful marriage.
(Since I was in the wedding, I unfortunately didn’t get to take many pictures.)
It’s still summer for a few more weeks, and it’s still
finally hot out here in the Midwest, so why not break out a fancy summer dress for church? She looked so pretty I just had to get a shot. This one’s for Grandma Sue.
Sunday mornings with Baby K are the best. She has been sleeping until about 9 a.m., so on Sundays I get to wake her up for a change – to get ready for church. I love opening her curtains, singing to her, and watching her stretch, squeak, and squirm, as if to say, “I’m not ready to wake up yet, Mom!” Once her eyes open she’s full of smiles. This weekend my sister and nephew got to witness this highlight of my week.
Next month my husband and I will have the privilege of attending our first gala, thanks to a generous birthday gift. We’ll be attending the PANCAN Night of Hope at Union Station. I bought this dress for the occasion about a week ago, and I’ve been meaning to take a photo of it to send to my mom. I figured I might as well turn it into my photo of the day. Now I just need shoes and jewelry … suggestions welcome!
