I asked her via that post if she would take our annual portraits, which have always been tortuous days of cowlicks, ketchup stains, ill-timed grumpiness, and asynchronous smiles.
Graciously, Mary Beth didn’t even make me say “pretty please.” Instead, she invited us to her Secret Beautiful Place and gave a Sunday afternoon to us. Here’s a sample of what she captured. (I’ve chosen fairly anonymous shots, due to an agreement I have with my husband about the limits of my blogging.)
Tessa had just had her birthday mani-pedi.
At the right time of day, they make you look 10 pounds lighter!
If you thought these were impressive, you should see the shots with faces. MB is a lady of immeasurable talent. I’m so glad that this year we broke the bonds of chain store portraits and entrusted our moment in time with her.
Now go on over to Mel’s Show & Tell for more of this week’s display.
