This year was the first time we’ve had legit family photos taken since Henry was born.
There were a lot of excuses – we’re too busy, we have a nice camera of our own, Henry is unpredictable, Ryan hates getting pictures taken.
But this year, I put my foot down and booked my friend at Amanda Oakes Photography. She actually went to elementary school with Ryan, so that got his approval. She has little guys, too – so that earned Henry’s approval. And she was very affordable and takes amazing photos. (And no, she didn’t ask me to tell you that. We just love her.)
Sneak peek – this is my favorite photo. Love these guys.
But, as we prepared for family photos (am I the only one who really worries about preparing for photos?), I knew that I wanted to look my best, too.
I mean, Henry would always be adorable. And Ryan would look great. But, momma needed to look good, too.
So, I booked a hair cut with my favorite stylist, Kacey. I bought some new makeup. I found clothes that I felt comfortable in.
I’m practically a model now. (Kidding.)
The sugar high was a small price to pay.
