I didn’t have time to upload and edit Tayla’s 6 month photo session until this week! The holidays were just tooo busy. I spent all of yesterday sorting through 200 photos and editing a select few which I think are just so adorable. You’ll notice shes outfitted in a white tutu with a cream coloured bow in the back- handmade by me too, and so easy to make.
Tayla got to meet Santa for the first time. She was absolutely adorable, sweet and not at all scared to sit on his lap. We purchased the usual photo package of 2 5×7 & 2 4×6 printed photos but also paid an extra $5 to have the photos sent to us by email (AMAZING). Here is what I created with good old Photoshop. I felt the original photo wasn’t magical/Christmas-y enough but I think I fixed that!
Below: The original cute photo of Tayla and Santa & the background winter wonderland photo I took from google images.
After I created the new image I designed our Christmas Cards with vistaprint.ca. Can’t wait for them to arrive in the mail so that I can share the holiday spirit with our friends and family.
It will be our little Tayla’s first Christmas so I’m on the hunt to find the cutest ‘Baby’s First Christmas’ ornament for her! Here are my top 4 picks from Etsy.com.
1. SomethingAboutSilver $51.47 CAD
2. FiredUpLadiesHammer $41.82 CAD
3. Susabellas $32.42 CAD
(the photographs above belong to each shop- match the numbered on the photo to the linked to visit their Etsy shop).
I begged Brad to get professional photos done of us well I’m pregnant. I think pictures of your belly are so special and important and we would regret it if we didn’t do it. However, Brad didn’t want to spend the money to hire someone so instead I went out and bought a new Canon portrait lens, a tripod and remote picture taking thingie. I probably spent the same amount on these items as we would have if we hired a real photographer!
Last Sunday around 5 o’clock I felt the sun looked so pretty shining into our backyard so I told Brad it is now or never (as in the baby will be here by the time we take this pics).
I can’t tell you how happy I am with the photos and the pride that I feel for taking and editing them. Don’t tell Brad but I’m glad he made us do it ourselves.
Here are a few good ones!
Can’t wait to take pics of our little bundle of love in 4 ish weeks!
