Fortunately, my good friend Christi is as efficient as she is talented. Yesterday, Christi met us at the pumpkin patch in hopes of doing some family photos and getting Eli's 9 month pictures. It was cold (50 degrees), very windy, and Eli was getting sick. But we tried it anyway and I'm so glad that we did. Before bedtime last night Christi had 4 beautiful pictures posted on Facebook and at least a couple more this morning.
Christi and I have known each other forever and she is the sweetest lady you'd ever hope to meet. I'm not sure how recently she's begun doing some light photography work on the side, but she definately has an eye for it. What I'm most impressed by, though, is how she managed to get some pictures edited so quickly. She has a 3 year old little boy and a 4 month old little girl of her own and still she managed to get us a preview of our pictures within a few hours. I think I'm doing good if I can get Eli's weekly shot off the camera within 2-3 days so I'm super impressed.
So until I can get photos and do a proper post for Eli's 41 week pictures, I'll share these. See you soon!
|You can't see how cold it is, but can you tell how windy it is?|
|This one was taken when we ducked back into the corn maze. It provided a nice little haven from the wind.|
|Another shot in the corn maze. This is my favorite so far. I was afraid that it would be way to dark in our little hole to get good shots, but apparently it was just terrific.|
|What a beautiful little face!|
|Eli almost refused to smile all afternoon and I was constantly wiping snot from his nose. I'm not sure how we got so lucky as to get these fresh faced pictures.|
|Our happy little family of 3.|
