say cheese

I am so blessed to be friends with such amazing photographers. However it makes me acutely aware of how much I suck at taking pictures. And how much my camera sucks. I see their photos and am super jealous of how they can capture a moment in time. So I enlisted one of them to do some six month photos of Lila and us.
My friend Casey, whose daughter Daisy is 3 weeks younger than Lila, is just taking off in her photography career. She totally captures the personality of the kids she photographs and has Lila's number DOWN.
We started off the photo shoot in the quaint downtown of a nearby town for some fun family photo shots.
Then we had to pay a little tribute to our favorite show.
And we ended up in a big field near by. We look happy but really we were trying to avoid all of the red ant hills. And other bugs flying into our face while we were smiling. Luckily Lila was oblivious.
I am so glad we have these shots of how we all played and laughed together at this age. She is such a happy baby and makes being her parents so easy and fun.

You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
