Lucy

With my first two boys, I went to Sears or JCPenney's religiously to get their pictures taken.  It was the most "professional" we could afford at the time.

Which makes me smile now.

The third son also had his fair share of the "professional" photo shoots, mostly so that I could avoid the pitfall of "the third child who has no pictures" kinda deal.  But by this time, the miracle that is digital photography appeared, which somehow turned the non-professional average joe into photographers...which turned out to be waaaaaay better than heading to the department store studio.  

Along comes number four.  And she's a girl.  She's never yet made it to a professional studio.  Is it because this mama is too tired and lazy to mess with that now?  Ummm....yes.  And much smarter, I might add. ;)  Because now, instead of heading to a studio, I have fabulous friends who come to me! Does it get any better than that?!?

It doesn't.

Lucy's first photo shoot is here:  

And second photo shoot is here:

And some of her latest, by my super-sweet-uber-talented-friend-Beth.














I know, the cuteness factor is overwhelming. 

And no photo shoot is complete without sharing some out-takes.  I love me some out-takes...as long as they are not of me ;)  Vanity, vanity...blah blah blah

















Happy Day to You Bloggy Friends!

    And that "outtake" of her in the tutu, remember that look, you'll be seeing it a lot when she's a teenager ;) It's the "oh no you din't" look.

  13. What a doll! She's just gorgeous. Those close-ups really got me. I do wish I had better pictures of my kids when they were babies.
