I never actually intended on a tea set being a part of the photoshoot. The girls needed something to keep their focus and something to kind of "play with" during the shoot, and we had a tea set left on our deck from their birthday party a few weeks prior. I grabbed the set, and they just went to town playing. And I just love how it turned out.
Again, the girls needed a little encouraging. Esther was so patient! And I resorted to tickling. :) I love these where you can see me reaching in and tickling the girls and how much fun that moment was.
Monk was our supervisor, making sure we stayed focused on the task at hand. He is all business. :)
My very favorite picture from the shoot. My darling girls.
I love these pictures too, because my Dad made this beautiful rustic bench, that the girls are sitting on, for me this past Mother's Day. And some exciting news...some of my Dad's beautiful wooden creations will be added to the etsy shop this week! I love that Goat & Lulu's home line will expand from pillows and runners to include handmade rustic frames and mirrors as well!
I have had a lot of questions about these criss-cross ruffle bubbles, and they will be in the etsy shop this week!
Oh, my boy.
Oh, my heart. My sweet boy.
I wanted a few pictures of me with the children, but I still wanted the emphasis to be on the kids. I got some inspiration from another picture I had seen, of mama holding the baby, and the littles holding onto her legs, and so that's what we were aiming for.
I love these, and they are so special to me.
