|Our most recent family portrait: in 2012! Photographer: Bethany Schiedel|
About a week ago I noticed that she had a few spots available for her day of mini portrait sessions, so I jumped on it & booked us a session. This morning we got up, tried to straighten out everyone's hair & pick outfits that would look good without being matchy-matchy. Our dryer has been broken for a few days now & it's too cool & damp to hang dry any clothes at this time of year, so our clothing options were limited. We managed to have breakfast, I even got some makeup on--totally forgot mascara, however--& we arrived only a couple of minutes late. A record for us.
It was a quick in & out session in Bethany's bright studio, which was good for the kids, though Linnaeus wasn't terribly cooperative. He has had a bit of an aversion to having his photo taken lately. After Bethany got shots of all of us & various combinations of two or three of us, while L knocked over the reflector & B tried to get at the Sharpies, we headed back home again. It was lovely to work with Bethany again & I can't wait to see the results of our session this time around.
