Mia's headband c/o Sweet Angel KreationsIn Mia's first year of life I had pictures taken every 3 months to show how much she grew in those short time spans. Blame it on the fact that I'm just plain obsessed with my little family and having pictures galore! I also think I was playing catch up because Eric and I never had professional pictures taken between our wedding and Mia's newborn photos... almost 5 years of heaven for Eric ;) I couldn't help but torture him a little with all those photo shoots, ha ha! Anyway, I was missing the photos so much that I had to schedule an 18 month shoot instead of waiting until Mia turned 2... what a nightmare!
These gorgeous photos didn't come with out some serious blood, sweat and tears... literally! Eric ended up working an insane amount of hours just before photos so you know, my picture hating husband was in an even more picture hating mood at the shoot, so fun! I should have known better but Mia didn't want to hold still for one second, let alone smile for the camera and she she was pretty ticked at me for trying to force it, ah! At one point, Mia was having so much fun running across that wooden bridge that she got ahead of herself, tripped over her feet and scraped the side of her face... my momma heart broke in a million pieces, but you better believe I still made us press on with the dang photo shoot (ha!) Oh and did I mention it was over 90 degrees, that's where the sweat comes in. Our poor photographer!!
I love these photos and I'm so grateful to have them, but I've learned that Mia is to the point where I only want to experience this stress once a year, ha ha! Just keepin' it real, yo! But I do love my beautiful little family!
