The First Big Photo Shoot

Wednesday, April 25, 2007
My friend, Elissa is a very talented photographer. We have talked for months (if not years) about how wonderful it will be when she can finally take Kate's picture. So, I asked her to come take some photos for Kate's arrival announcements. It was Kate's nap time and she still had a touch of a goopy eye. Let's just say Miss Kate was not very cooperative. We did finally get a few great ones (due to Elissa's immense talent) but here are some that did not make the cut for the announcement. Thank you SO much Elissa!

Okay, what are these silly ladies doing to me? I need to spice this up.

Hmmm...I know just how to get out of this whole thing.

First, I'll eat my dress. Mom will not like that at all.

Then, I'll make a sour puss face.

And some kissy lips...

Wow, are you guys ever gonna give up?

I need my nap!

  2. I love these pictures! Kate looks so precious. The descriptions were
