I’ve been ridiculously lax in the photography department, well, for Seth’s whole life, pretty much. Kind of like keeping a baby book, or faithful scrapbooking, regular photo sessions just seemed to be one of the things I’m just doomed to failed at.
Thankfully, each February, we have reason to travel to Ohio, and my mother-in-law steps in, and we get professional portraits of Seth taken. Whew!
While I can admit that it’s hard for this momma to let go of “creative control,” I think the pictures turned out cute!
It was actually really emotional for me to receive the CD with these pictures in the mail from my mother-in-law. It’s been 8 days since I’ve seen my little man, and I just can’t get over how not-a-baby he looks in these pictures. In the first one, especially, he doesn’t even appear “toddlerish” to me – he looks like a little boy. How? How did this happen?
I know this is only a taste of what is to come. I’m sure the first picture we’ll take of him and his baby sister will blow me away even moreso than these portraits. Seth’ll look like a giant in comparison to her. But I guess that is just how life ebbs and flows, huh?
