Very busy weekend! Addy had her first photo shoot! I can't get over how amazing she is. I only heard her cry briefly and that was when she was getting changed. She is very alert when she decides to be awake and is taking everything in. It is finally starting to hit me that I have a granddaughter, and an amazing one as well. We are very blessed!
This picture means a lot to me for many reasons. This was taken in my "finished only a few weeks ago" attic. The wall behind her I did 3-4 separate times and different ways. It is not what I originally intended, then I did something else, then I painted over that, then I did it again and the final result I really love. When it was completed the first thing I saw was the photograph above, or at least the colors. I thought it would be beautiful for portraits but was sad because I never thought I would get the chance to photograph my grandaughter there. My son and daughter in law have allergies with my cats and once we move, the cats will be in this space. I do not know yet if my granddaughter will have these same allergies, but at the same time we have taken steps to make them comfortable in our new home, and in a few weeks this room will not be pet free. I am going to try to figure something out, my grandson loves playing in these rooms and I love having them there. I am so happy that her first photo shoot was something I didn't think would be a reality. I painted the wall with my own hands, my husband put in the floor she is on and the basket was found at GoodWill and the fur blanket she is on is the same one her big brother used for the first year of his life, and the bow is hers and purchased just for her.
More photographs later :)
