Pictures taken

If you remember my rant about last year's picture taking fun you'll understand why I was looking for an alternative this year. We hired my friend Elizabeth at http://www.earthmamaphotography.com to take Tessa's two year pictures and some family shots. I'm so pleased that we did. How nice to spend time with a patient photographer --one who wants to take our picture.
We are in the process of picking out which pictures we want, but I did want to share a couple with you that she had posted for us to see. (Uh, if this isn't legal for me to post these yet, Liz, please tell me.) There are several that I love that I will get to show you when I have them in my possession. I'd send you over to the whole client gallery of us, but I will be completely and embarassingly honest in this-- I am too selfish and vain. It turns out I look like a hungry rabid heyena when I laugh sometimes. I laugh a lot. I shouldn't laugh around a camera. Vain, I tell you. I just can't do that to you or myself. (Keep quiet, Jake.) I'll wait until I can pick and choose which ones to show you. Sorry. My blog.

Beautiful! What a relief for you. Don't you hate those photographers that have all the warmth and personality of a cold pork chop?

I am glad you found someone you love to do your pictures! Each one is fantastic, but that first one of Tessa is my absolute favorite - what a gorgeous little girl!

Ok, Maren... you are hilarious! I am so glad you love them and I thought you looked beautiful! I did notice on a few that Tessa wrinkles her nose when she laughs, just like you do. How cute is that! It is amazing what you notice when your job is to follow people around watching them for hours at a time. LOL!

Those are so good! Tessa is so gorgeous! And I've always loved the walking/holding hands family pose. It's so sweet.
