All the stress that accompanies getting family pictures taken is so worth it when you finally get your pictures back! I am loving all these shots Christal Anderson captured for us! She did such a great job and was so kind to let us pick her brain about cameras, lenses and the photography process.
You know you have a good photographer when she can get natural smiles out of this little girl! I’m glad she was able to get a few with Jayna smiling naturally as well as a couple with her signature cheeser!
I packed a little baggy of marshmallows along for Jayna, which proved to be a real life saver in between shots. I knew a little treat would do the trick, but didn’t want anything too messy. Marshmallows were perfect and they kept her happy!
We’re expecting! I’m almost 17 weeks and finally feel like I can be excited!! I’m no longer feeling yucky and I’m not as worried about losing the baby. We are so thankful to be pregnant again and can’t wait for his/her arrival!
