However, there was only the one shot, and I wanted to give Ralphie another chance to capture our little family in a more casual style. So as we planned our trip to Texas this year, I asked her to do a little photo session with us. She was more than willing. She brought a few fun props, was so good with Peanut (even though he was super grumpy and hot for most of it), was great at getting us to feel natural in front of the camera, and even let me borrow her belt. Now that is the kind of photographer you want to work with..right?
The cd of images just showed up three days ago and I have literally looked through them fifty times already. I. love. them. so. much. I had sent her a few photos ideas showing the look and feel I was going for, but the rest was all her. They are perfect. I love how most of them are not posed family shots, but rather moments that she captures as we play together.
