We are currently in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for a photo shoot for a client of mine. The trip, planned over 7 months ago, turned into being our first vacation as a new family, and since we had a few days here before I needed to work, I thought it would be nice to have our own family photos taken by a local photographer. I know, BIG STEP!!!
This is what we, er, my child, looked like by the end of the photo shoot!
I got it before but I totally get it now. Weeks, even months, coordinating the right outfits hoping they still fit by the time of the shoot, scheduling hair cuts far enough out to not look new but not too far out to look shaggy, iron clothes that were packed in a suitcase, schedule the photo shoot to time around naps and lighting….
Perfect day! Child napped. Woke up with plenty of time to feed and bathe her. Everyone ready and happy, only for the wind to pick up right when we started, like REALLY windy, and then Maya to enjoy the time playing in dirt when she wasn’t needed during a few shots of just Greg and I.
I didn’t care. That is my child. In a dress and her “rockstar” boots playing with dirt and rocks. Getting her face so dirty with wiping her hair off her face since it was so windy.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the professional shot of this pose but this one was taken with my iPhone at the very end. I had to get some documentation of it.
