As Lauren's one year birthday approaches it is time for her one year photos.
Because my sister is good at taking pictures, because she has kids of her own so she knows how you have to take photos quickly and because I have a DSLR, and because I know how to work Photoshop, we decided to forgo "professional" pictures.
I really wanted to just let someone else take care of it.
I made an appointment with a photographer.
Then Adam enters the picture and once again reminds me that it's expensive.
Of course it is. Taking pictures of babies is exhausting and frustrating. After an off and on all day photo op, some run-away balloons that didn't even make it into any photos, and a kid who would NOT look at the camera all day, we ended up with over 500 photos and some turned out pretty cute. THANK GOODNESS.
Get ready. There's lots.
Lauren and mommy.
Lauren and Daddy.
The Miller Family.
Whew, there's more of course :) but I think these are the best.
A few photos that didn't turn out so well look ok after "Photoshopping". What do you think? How'd we do?
