PICTURE PERFECT... FOR A PERFECT PICTURE



Oh this is my youngest girly: Karis. She just turned three recently and being the procrastinator I am, I just took her for her 3 year old portraits today. I'm trying a different chain this time: I'm sick of Wal-Mart and Sears. Yes I will probably be paying a highly inflated price but after the photo-shoot, I think it'll be well worth it!!

Karis is a natural born poser - LOL. She was in her ultimate groove, striking a pose every which way you could think. I have to admit, she looked pretty cute in her outfit (which I bought at Gymboree for a price that is too embarrassing to admit. Can I just redeem myself and say I bought the sweater today for 1/2 price just before the shoot?). I am a total picture monger. I probably have taken more pictures of my children during the past 4 years than most people take in their entire lifespan. I figure there are only moments in life that last so long; so why regret never having them captured? Hopefully if these turn out well, I'll be dragging the twins in for theirs in a few months. Don't know if I'll do another Gymboree run though; I might have to take out a bank loan or something. Anyone else love their clothes but have a hard time getting over the sticker shock of them? Personally I love Children's Place; I can sleep better at night after buying something from there. Which is exactly what I did after the pictures were done LOL. OK yes I have a serious shopping fixation... I need an intervention please.

Anyways, I will be going to see the proofs tomorrow. They took about 74 shots, so it'll be nice to have the opportunity to pick and choose from the ones I actually like (unlike some chains that make you choose your package picture first and then everything is extra. $9.99 is not a good package deal when your kid is crossed-eyed or picking her nose). Hopefully I'll have some pic's of my cutie-patootie to share in a few weeks. Until then... ENJOY!!

She's too cute. She really is a good poser. I hope you'll share some.

Oh, she is so lovely. Such pretty eyes!

And I buy all my kid's clothes from hanna andersen. Everytime they send me a catalog, I end up buying stuff. They are kind of pricey, but their clothes are durable. The only downside is that the sizes are European, so if I go to Target or something to pick up shoes or gym shorts, I have to stop and seriously think about what size to buy.
