One Year Pics

I was feeling the pressure from people to do professional photos for Sidekick.  I prefer the more "natural" looking shots, but with the purchase of a Groupon, I bit the bullet and off we went!  The photographer was so surprised that he is my first born, and I waited 13 months to finally get his pictures taken.  I've just never been that kind of Mom who does this kind of thing.  I have such great pictures of Sidekick already that my mom, my sister, or I took, so why pay someone to take his pictures?  I have to admit that I have quite a ham, and he actually did really well despite the fact that we went after school and it was dinner time.  I can't see doing this again any time soon, but I'm glad I did as we ended up with quite a lot of good ones. I did a couple of different outfits that really suit his personality (and my style of clothing for him), and he played the part so well in both of them.

  1. I think there's room for both kinds of photos. Mostly ours are the informal kind that I take with my phone. I love the "in the moment" memories I can capture. But there's something special about professional photos as well. These turned out terrific!
