a few months ago, we had our first family photos taken by the talented tim sondrup.
hero had just barely learned to walk and i wanted to be sure to capture this special time when she's right between baby and toddler. also, my hair was in a really good stage color and cut-wise so that was an important factor in timing as well ;)
it seemed like the photo shoot, we were all doing everything we could do get hero to hold still for 2 seconds and smile. but all she wanted to do was get down, walk around,...and eat all the little rocks. can't blame her- those rocks were awesome. i was so worried that the whole shoot had been a total bust but was pleasantly surprised when i saw the photos! even if hero isn't smiling in lots of them, i still think we got some pretty decent shots for trying to wrangle a 1 year old and look like we weren't super stressed about it all, haha.
here are just a few of my favorites!
