Serious Girls | The Photoshoot | aka wrangling the monkeys


Good pictures? Definitely better left to the professionals. With the good equipment. And good accessories. And the knowledge of what the heck they are doing (instead of my dumb luck at getting one “good” shot). Because this gem? I wouldn’t get it in a million years.

This one? Never would have thought of it. (And if you would have seen the bottoms of their socks, you would be wondering how I didn’t think of it!) Absolute joy on at least one face.

Perfection. Exactly captures each one of them.

Poor E. “Get your grubby paws off me you two. I want out of here!”

Gotta love the 4 year old “smile for the picture” smile. And yet? Totally N.

And this one? She thinks she’s hilarious. Sometimes she is…sometimes? Not so much.

Then there’s my E. Just the smiliest and happiest. This is one of those pictures I shall save for when she’s driving me crazy in the future (hopefully, the very distant future, or like, never. I can dream, right?).

Because you know there was nonsense and mayhem, here’s a little behind the scenes. It’s pretty amazing that Michael was able to capture all of those shot above with this craziness and tomfoolery happening in one instant.

Very much thanks and appreciation to our old neighbor, M. Fonseca Photography who took out pictures and was super patient and fun with the girls. And, even had the forethought to bring a bubble maker to surprise the girls. (And he didn’t ask me to share with you his link…I’m just so happy with them, I have to!) If you are in the Atlanta area, check him out.
