Matt was commissioned for a dance photo shoot this weekend so our dining room was completely transformed to a studio with black flooring, backdrop, and lots of BIG, BIG studio lights. What's a family to do without a dining room for a weekend? Well, take portraits, of course!
Tickles and GIGGLES reigned! While I was upstairs getting ready for my portrait (which I think turned out pretty well considering I don't tend to like any photos of me!), I chanced to overhear Matt laughingly "sigh" above the din of giggling from the girls, "If your mother were here...!"
In the end though, we finally got some lovely photos of the girls--and Bingley, too. Me being me, I would have liked the girls to have "coordinated" a bit more, but I bit my tongue and decided that a photo of them in their favorite shirts made some sense. It is just a photo for us to remember them by, anyways.
In the end, we all decided that Livvy (the bear) was the most cooperative participant and Bingley the least!
