I finally took Laura Anne outside to take her 5-year pictures! I decided that we will not be going to a studio anymore because 1--it will save us money, and 2--I'm perfectly capable of taking at least halfway decent photos. :)
I love this next picture although it is a tad fuzzy. The camera focused on the grass behind Laura Anne. But it turned out okay after sharpening it in Photoshop.
For the following picture, I told her to look off to the side at another tree because I wanted to get a profile shot.Then she saw Chris walking up behind me, getting ready to surprise me, but she was trying not to turn her head.
