The Elmo Shirt Photo Session

I had set up this photo shoot the other day just to play around with a backdrop and my 35mm lens. Allie was still feeling pretty crummy and was resting on the couch. Anna and Em thought it was fun to run across the backdrop and were more interested in watching television instead of looking at the camera.

Em did a lot of this

Did you notice that she is wearing only one sock?

And then they knocked over the backdrop, which was really just a blanket from my bed draped over propped up couch cushions. Ah yes, we are creative around here.

That bump there is Anna. Don't worry - no toddlers were injured during this mishap.

Your girls are so beautiful! do you use a piece of plexiglass for the floor of your photo backdrop? If so how big is it and did you just buy it at a home improvement store?

Jennifer said...
