When a child is born in our home we get professional pictures (JC Penney, if you can call that professional) done every month until they turn a year. And then every half birthday until 4 or 5 (haven't decided yet). After that they get studio pictures once a year on their birthdays. I happen to love the look of studio pictures.
What I don't love is driving all the way to Oklahoma City by myself (and by myself I mean with four kids, two who never stop talking, one who never stops crying, and one who never stops whining) now that Ashlea is gone.
So this year (when the birthdays and half birthdays came around) Jeff convinced me that Hannah could do a way better job than JC Penney's could. BUT I love the look of studio pictures.
Hannah agreed to do some natural shots, of her own liking, and then some studio-ish photos for me.
Have I told you how much I love Hannah? I've had the opportunity to watch her grow up in the last few years. She's smart and pretty and funny and so like able. She was Ashlea's best friend, so she was around a lot. And even though Ashlea is gone she still makes time for us, which also helps me to feel closer to Ashlea.
Lest you think I only love her because of Ashlea, I don't. I love her because she's Hannah.
So here are just a few of her photos. (Could someone remind me to pay the girl?) Which are your favorites? Yes, the models are darling, aren't they?
Smile Millicent. "This is my new smile."
Because that was her new smile we didn't get many pictures of her that we liked...but I love the way Hannah did this one.
And wow. Yea!
