I was trying to be a crafty mom (in real life I'm not) and get a shoot done today so I could make A's valentines for her school party. The light outside this afternoon was gorgeous, so I put 3 layers of clothes on Miss Thing and went to a spot I've been wanting to shoot near my house. My husband was laughing at me telling me the wind was too cold, but I only needed 5 minutes. As soon as I took Averie's coat off, this is what happened...
Yep, I win the mother of the year award.
This shoot lasted a total of 1.37 minutes before she told me "Mooooommmy, it's too cooollllldd!!"
Back in the warm car we went where my husband was laughing hysterically. I get Averie hooked in her car seat and she asks if we can go get a milkshake. Really??
So, after feeling horrible about putting her in the cold--yes, she got a milkshake. Then I snapped some shots in our living room when we got home. The light wasn't as pretty, but she was warm and happy.
We'll try that location again another day... ;)
