A few weeks ago, Felicity and I got together with my friend Michelle and her daughter Madeline for a play date. I posted pictures of me from that session HERE. Today, I thought I’d share some of the photos I took of Michelle and Madeline. I want to say that Madeline is three months behind Felicity in age…so she’s roughly the same age as my nephew. Either way, she’s quite the cutie. I remember when Michelle and I were both pregnant with our baby girls. Michelle still tells me that she often pays attention to our latest milestones to see what she has to look forward to. In particular, we talked about going mobile. I told her to enjoy every ounce of time she has with Madeline staying put, because once they go mobile…it just gives you one more thing to worry about. One of the nice things about hanging with Michelle (at her house in particular) is that she has amazing light. If you like back lighting, you are in luck! Another nice thing…she knows how to work a camera. I can’t wait to meet up with her again in May for new photos. Mirror Mirror on the Wall…who’s the fairest of them all? Madeline! I gotta give Michelle a lot of credit for the set up of most of these shots. When I asked her if she would take some photos of me and Felicity together, I really didn’t have a lot in mind. If you’ve ever worked with me, I don’t plan a ton of my shots…mostly because I tend to go for very natural posing and a plan can often limit my creativity. That said, having a few must take photo poses in my back pocket is really nice and I’m so glad Michelle came prepared! For example, this shot of Madeline on Michelle’s knees. I don’t think I would have thought to do this on the fly…especially with Felicity pulling at my legs, but I love the way it turned out. Or this shot under the covers. I don’t think this was exactly what Michelle had in mind but it’s one of my favorites.
With that said, I hope you enjoyed these photos. Have a great weekend. I’ll see you on Sunday for the Scavenger Hunt.
