I know, I know, Eloise is going on nine months and I am just posting her six month pictures. I have no great excuse other than we’ve been busy with lots of other great content and putting together Eloise’s pictures is SO hard for me. Thanks to our fab photographer, Maggie Russo, I love them all. As much as I would love to feature all 200+ photos I am sure that would be overkill… so this time around I actually really tried to limit myself. I tried to pick not only the smiley, typical “great pictures” but also some that show her many expressions and cute-as-can-be personality. I guess you could say I choose my favorites as a mom and not a blogger. I hope you all enjoy these photos one tenth as much I do (which would mean you would adore them, in a big, big way). I can’t believe our little gal is getting so big. It seems like just yesterday she was a newborn in my arms at the hospital. Now she is on to sitting up, laughing, giving the oh-so-serious face and grabbing for the camera. I am so, so glad that I have Maggie to document this special time.
Maggie and I probably put Eloise in ten different outfits. Through it all she was a good sport but towards the end she was looking at us like, “really guys, can we stop with the outfit changes?”. I think Maggie and I told her about five times it was the last one… it can be so hard to choose outfits! Maggie has these great backdrops she brings along which really kick up the style and versitatility in these at home sessions. Don’t get me wrong I love having the pictures done at our place but I think the backdrops add another chic dimension to it all. Not to mention, our clutter can be out of the background for once! So what is the secret to great photos? My advice would be choose a photographer you work well with (which is no easy feat!). Maggie is great because she has experience and knows what works and what doesn’t, she has good taste so I trust her judgement and opinions and she is patient and just downright fabulous to work with. Which is why I think I love our pictures each and every time. To see more of Maggie’s work check out her blog.
