Family Pictures

For Mothers Day this year I was so lucky to get a family photo shoot as a gift!! I scheduled it right at Lily’s 18 month mark so we could capture her in this fun stage.

Fall Pieces and a Crying Baby

Well here is another outfit post that didn’t go as planned, but that’s life right? Most of the time Lily was crying and I was bribing her. I had the wrong lens on the camera in the beginning (ugh). I’m still figuring out this blogging thing. Having good pictures is such an important aspect and I’m learning that good pictures don’t just happen. It takes practice, practice, and then more practice. On a good note Matt and I aren’t ending these…
