Strike a Pose

Taking an 11-month-old's picture by yourself is trickier than it might seem. I have done 3 different outdoor 'photo shoots' with Lily over the last couple of days in hopes of capturing the perfect image for her Birthday Party invitations. Not the easiest endeavor of my life.

To capture Lil's attention I proceeded to dance around, make funny noises and wave around random sticks between my toes, all in an effort to capture this kid's attention. All of this took place on our driveway, which happens to be angled in such a way that drivers from a very busy road close to our home could easily take a gander at my antics. I think during one of the morning 'shoots' I may have even still been in my bathrobe.

After approximately 200 tries I think that I finally have my money shot. You will have to wait and see what it looks like once the invites are in the mail. For now you can enjoy a few of the shots that did not make the cut...

Rachel it is the dress you gave her! I was so excited that it actually fit her because it is my favorite thing hanging in her closet :)
