Picture Perfect

A few months ago, I posted about looking for a photographer to take portraits of Avery, and then newborn shots when the baby was born. I ended up hiring Angelique with Dragonfly Design Photography, after my sister-in-law recommended her. Last week, I received Isla's birth announcements that Dragonfly designed, and thought you might enjoy a peek. My sweet baby girl (who hardly even looks like this anymore!)

See? (Nice spit-up bubbles, too!)

(Thanks, cousin Lindsey, for being a part of our impromptu session this weekend!)

Anyway, here's some of my other favorites from the two photo sessions...

I can't even tell you how much this expression is her daddy.

Very Anne Geddes, isn't it?

Something about the loveseat and those pom poms...

A little vintage editing...

So darling! I wish this type of photography style was popular when my kids were little. Now I'll have to wait for grandchildren .... in a bunch of years.
