Tessa was full of sass, but she couldn’t stop me from catching some of her sneaky smiles! But let’s start with the sass, and this shot, which may actually be my favorite from the entire shoot:
At this point in the shoot, Tessa was walking away from us, and kept looking back to make sure we weren’t following her.
But let’s start from the beginning.
I was able to meet up with our friends Katie & Johnny last week, who just so happened to welcome a new little one into their family. Of course, a photoshoot was in order!
World, meet Cecilia!
She has the tiniest little toes and fingers. Big sister Gwen couldn’t get enough!
It’s Tessa’s first time into the world of being a “big sister,” but she was rocking it! She kept making sure her baby sister was comfortable, and giving her lots of kisses!
Big, big sister Gwen is already a pro in the world of big sisterdom.
And both she and Tessa are getting so big! Just look at this comparison shot from last year:
And if this next set of shots doesn’t convince you how important it is to take family photos every year, I don’t know what will.
The one on the top is from only last year. The one on the bottom was just taken last week — just one year apart!
And now, there’s a NEW baby in the house!
Tessa has gotten so big!! She wasn’t quite in the mood to smile and pose, so we had to get a little creative. We’d let Gwen take a solo shot, and then ask Tessa if she wanted to take a photo just like big sister.
It worked … sometimes.
Thankfully, Cecilia isn’t old enough to do anything but let me pose her. 😉
Sometimes it’s the small victories.
Although, she’s already workin’ on her sassy face for me. Maybe next year she’ll have it perfected!
Thanks for letting me capture your troop, Katie & Johnny!
