school photos

Our photographer finally got her act together and took the girls school photos (ahem, yes that would be me).

I splurged on Hannah Andersson dresses for the girls for Christmas. K still wears C's from the dresses I bought the girls four years ago (deliberately big so they could wear them for many years). The girls picked the colors - I love the vibrant jewel tones.

I am still totally captivated by back light and lens flares (notice the bare ground: we are approaching what is traditionally the coldest day of the year in Minnesota and it reached 49 yesterday and there has only been a few dustings of snow so far this year).

The girls asked that I take pictures of them reading their bibles.

On the way home, I saw the shadows of a fence thrown up against a metal service box and wanted to take a moody shot. C graciously posed for me (this one really ought to be seen full size as the paint on the box is abraded and creates interesting background noise).

Soooo beautiful!
Seriously. Those school photographers could learn a thing or two from you.

Oh, and I meant to add, I LOVE the shadows of the trees in the picture with both girls. GORGEOUS.
And that last one? Wow.

These are amazing! I think my favorite is of the two girls with their arms around each other.

Wow! Those gorgeous girls in those gorgeous dresses (I love Hannah too). Good mama.

I especially love that they wanted to have their pictures taken with their Bibles. Again I say, good mama. :)
