Portraits

Today, Derek and I went to pick out the portraits we had taken of Evan and Ella Grace. I think I should have prepared him somewhat. He had no idea what portraits cost, and they ARE expensive. After he got over the initial shock and saw these...

...he was okay. She took a ton of pictures and it was hard to decide, but in the end we made the best choices I think. The individual shots will be portraits for my dining room hung together, and the other picture of them smooching will be on a table somewhere. We also got collages of each of them...one with Ella's signature pout and one with Evan's signature tennis shoes. I'll post pictures after I get them framed and hung. I scanned this from my receipt, so they are not the best quality but still shows what they will look like. There is nothing I love more than portraits of my children! That's why I need to learn to take them myself. Ordering again soon might just give Derek a heart attack!

Thank you, Derek!
