So remember that time I spent all evening making props and getting two outfits + accessories ready for a certain someone's 1st birthday photo session? The session was a flop.
Not on my end. Not on the photographer's (my amazing and patient friend) end either.
It was all on my child.
The child who was in no mood to smile, no mood to sit still. She wanted to cry and flail around like a crazy who'd woken up too soon from her nap. (Oh wait, that's exactly what happened.)
I thought having her out in the sunshine and cool air would make her happy but nothing was making her happy.
Except for a calculator. That DAMN CALCULATOR.
Not sure why Ronnie gave that to her one time but since then she has become ub-sessed. Sure she plays with other toys but only for a little bit. At least until she remembers to look for her calculator.
Needless to say, the photos didn't quite turn out as I'd hoped but there's one that's my favorite...even if that DAMN CALCULATOR is front and center. I'm sure we'll look back on this many years from now and laugh.
For now, the outfits, the props and the smashing of a cupcake will have to wait until our rescheduled session next weekend.
Such is life with an almost 1 year old :)
Hope y'all have a fabulous weekend! Happy Friday!!
