It's the night before family pictures and I'm nervous. Like always. Life with a toddler is very unpredictable. She isn't big on standing or sitting still for a moment, let alone posing and smiling for the camera. I'm worried about all of the typical things that moms of toddlers are concerned with, will she have a melt down? Will her back be to the camera the entire time? Will she smile at all? Will she ruin her outfit within seconds of getting start? And then I'm worried about things that have nothing to do with our free spirited child. Things like... Will my husband be squinting in all of the pictures (like he always is?!)? Will our outfits match even though Emerie and I have on different colors or prints? Will my naturally curly hair be frizzy and wavy (due to spring humidity) even after my attempts to straighten it before the photos? Every time we have pictures scheduled I feel anxious, and every time they've turned out good... great even. Here's a look back on maternity with Emerie, newborn, 6 months, and one year family photos. And here's to hoping tomorrow's photo session is just as successful! (And that all this worrying is for nothing!)
Have a great weekend!
