Pictures Galore

I. AM. IN. L-O-V-E...


Yes, with the pictures, but more so with the lady who took them.

You see, she is a good friend who I love dearly. She is the most patient woman I have ever met. (West girls, don't take her glory away - let's be nice to each other JUST this post please.)

She was here at our home for 2+ hours shooting away. We had an extremely uncooperative little girl who didn't like to be unclothed. She's VERY used to her mommmy bundling her up, and let's just say that the little snuggle bug became a roaring dragon! The photographer didn't let it get to her - she just kept taking pictures like the professional that she will one day become.

She has now taken pictures for me on three occasions, and each time, she gets better & better. You aren't going to believe by looking at the pictures below that she is an amateur. Yes, she does this for fun! She doesn't like to get paid for her work, and she really enjoys doing it.

She also must have spent a minimum of 24 hours editing the pictures for me. She claims that she was mainly editing "background issues", but I had to remind her that no matter what anybody says, 4-week old babies aren't exactly "supermodels"!

This woman went out to Target the night before to buy props for our photo shoot. Sadly, we didn't even get to use everything. She took time out of her busy life to make sure that I would love these pictures - and I did...x10,000!

Anyway, at no charge to our family, she made a lifetime of memories for us. As I looked through the pictures, she brought out emotions that I didn't know I had. The dinner we bought for her & her family will NEVER be enough for what she did. The next time she takes pictures, she WILL be getting paid.
I just wanted everyone to know how grateful I am to her - not only for her wonderful work, but for her friendship.

Thank you, Andrea Linder, for your time, patience, and creativity.
You totally rock my socks!

...and now without further commentary from my busy mouth, here is my blue-eyed angel at 4-weeks of age, and her good-looking older "bubbas"...

Hi Jessica! I'm so glad you posted on my blog. Your family is precious!! I was actually looking at Jilian's sweet pictures this afternoon, but didn't get the chance to comment.

Thanks for the PT and Spring Break advice! We do the timer, but haven't done the 3 minute rule. I will start that tomorrow.

Take care!
