Also keeping it real, the girls were not on their best picture-taking game this day. Avalon fought a nap all afternoon and then finally fell asleep on the way there, so we had to wake her up and she was super grouchy (not like her at all) and clingy pretty much the entire time. Waverly Maye, girlfriend was on her own agenda and still in the stage of practicing her own independence as a new kindergartener. Our girls usually enjoy taking pictures and get pretty into it, so it was pretty frustrating that they weren’t the one day of the year we had holiday photos, yet such is motherhood. Through the years I am learning more and more to embrace the good and the not so good, because somehow, I know I will miss it all one day. And when you step back, all of it is beautiful in it’s own way.
The biggest thank you to Shawna Bielat Photography for capturing these, I have also linked my dress and the girls outfits below! XO
These are beautiful and I love the location! I cannot tell that your girls were off their game, your photographer did a great job!
If this is the girls on their sub-par game, I can't even imagine when they're 100% on point! These are beautiful! I have to shove M&Ms into my kids' mouths for 30 seconds of picture taking cooperation!
Those pictures are beautiful! I would have framed every one!
