Family Photos With a Side of Squinting and Frizzing

Happy Thursday!  Today's post is brought to you from my bed, snuggling with my still sick Baby Girl.  We're on day 4 of antibiotics, steroids, and nebulizer treatments.  She hasn't improved at all and has a fever today.  Calgon, take me away!

Last week, I showed a little family photo teaser, with my favorite picture of all time.

Here's another version in color.  I can't get enough of those red mary jane Keds.  Her shirt is from a lovely little children's boutique, The Ragamuffin Shop, here in Mt. Pleasant.

These are the rest of my favorites (despite my frizzy, rained on hair and squinty eyes).

If you want to recreate my look....  The tank I was wearing is sold out, but I like these options better, especially the sequin tank for the Holidays.  I included a pair of gorgeous booties in case you're not into heels.

If you're in the Charleston area and need professional photos, Gina Stevens is your girl!  She's super talented, sweet as can be, and very affordable!  What more could you ask for? 

A little side note about the photo shoot location.  It's near and dear to our hearts.  We were behind the clubhouse in Daniel Island Park.  We were married there and had our wedding pictures taken on the same footbridge and steps.  We will be building our second dream home in the next few years within walking distance of the location.  Awwwwwww.  :)

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  My long and much anticipated Carmen Marc Valvo couture gown arrived today.  I will be wearing it to a Christmas party on the 7th.  I can't wait!!!  My waist, on the other hand, is a bit nervous and skeptical.
