Are You in the Photos?
Prior to having baby Alex, I was the person always taking the photos, and while I appeared in some images, I did not appear in too many overall. Now, having a baby, I want to have some images where Doug and I are photographed with our baby girl! A few times in the past two weeks, we took a look at the weather and then did some impromptu photo shoots together. (I just made sure to dry my hair, which is a treat these days!) It is easy and it does not require much time or planning! We hope to take advantage of the weather through the fall and take some more photos together, as our baby Alex is not going to be small for too long, and we want to be able to capture this time with her in our arms, to hold onto forever!
I even think when we are out and about, we will start asking people, even strangers, to take photos of us with Alex and Victory. I want to have Doug and I represented more in our camera roll!
I still do impromptu photo shoot with Victory and baby Alex, a few of those recent images appear below, too! I try to always keep my camera on hand, especially when I think, “I want to remember this moment!” It is always fun to capture the everyday, the moments we are most likely to remember versus only capturing the “big” events and milestones. Play time in the mornings is a favorite for baby Alex and Victory, who is now fully integrated with her sister! Victory joins play time and story time each morning and Victory licks baby Alex literally from head to toe, including every fold and roll! It is adorable and I think Victory knows that she is a ‘big sister’ or a ‘co-mamma!’ It has been really wonderful to witness Victory’s love for her sister! Baby Alex is aware of Victory, but she has not yet fully ‘discovered’ Victory — we can’t wait until this happens!
