I decided to skip the portrait studio for Elaine’s One Year Pictures…at least for now. She didn’t do well at our family picture, and I don’t want the hassle and expense for poor pictures. I decided to try taking them myself. She is still not feeling great, so we didn’t get a lot of pictures today. I was experimenting with a black background to see if it would help eliminate my shadow problems. I really wanted her to stand up, but she didn’t want to be still. She didn’t want to sit up straight, either. These are the best we could get!
