True Love: The feeling when you first look in your child's eyes, the tiny little hand gripping your finger, and you can't imagine your life without him or her.

School Pictures

It's an annual tradition.
In our school system, a bi-annual tradition.
Our kiddo gets pictures taken in the fall & spring.
And every time, I'm thoroughly disappointed.
This year, I refused to spend one penny on those God-awful, horrible things passing for pictures.
They were out of focus.
And they somehow made my daughter look ugly.
And my daughter IS NOT ugly! 

So, what's a photography-loving mama to do?? 
Take my own school pictures!! 

Granted, the lighting isn't the best - indoors without a flash.
But they're a heck of a lot better than the school's options!! 
Plus, it's only 1st grade... I'm sure she'll forgive me later on for my lack of lighting skills.

Since I already had the camera out & the background up, I grabbed Milo & made him put on some suspenders that he hated.
He immediately started taking them off.

I thought they were cute, but apparently Milo thought differently.

So, I think I'm going to just order some of these pictures & give them out instead of those awful generic school ones!
On to new (& better) traditions!!

  1. I love these pictures! Way more personality than the ones from school!


  2. Agreed. Your pictures are much better. Too bad Milo took off the suspenders-they did add a nice pop of color.

  3. What beautiful children! And I agree -- school photos are the worst. I wish I'd been taking my own all these years. Visiting from Ni Hao Yall.

  4. I love them. You did a great job

  5. Both your kids are very cute. Milo is so handsome. He's going to be a heartbreaker. :-)
