Back when Eloise was just about to turn 3 months old, I had contacted someone I went to high school with who does photography on the side. The plan was to get some "not-so-newborn" photos of Eloise... since she was already kind of getting out of the newborn stage. Time and time again, plans fell through. Since we wanted to do shots outside, we were kind of dependent on the weather, which -of course- was RAIN, RAIN, RAIN almost every weekend. Then, wedding season started and I sure as heck didn't want to get in the way of this gal booking wedding gigs. So... we finally settled on July 9th.
Guess what? We were all ready to go... just waiting for the clock to tick down the time... and I got a text saying that the photographer was sick.
To say I was bummed is an understatement. I had been looking forward to getting some nice shots of Eloise for literally... MONTHS. Not that each picture we get every day isn't special... but something a little more "professional" was what I was hoping for. Not to mention, my mom and I spent a whole day working on a dress for me... and I spent THE NEXT DAY working on a dress for El! A lot of work... seemed like a shame that it would go to waste, in a sense.
Since it was a No-Go... I called my sister to whine about it to her.
To my surprise, she was kid-free for a little bit... and offered to come out and take some pictures for us! I wasn't so sure at first... since it wasn't "professional"... but then I thought... WHAT THE HECK!? WHY NOT! So we made arrangements.
Here are some of the pictures that Cory and I took- after being tweaked a little, of course! I have to get the ones from my sister... and I'll post those another time!
Warning: Picture Overload!
Not too shabby for a regular OLD Canon camera! :)
(Not sure why some of the pics look grainy... they are only like that on Blogger... not on my computers picture files! Oh well!)
