Before Autumn was born on November 21st, I had already purchased her Christmas dress at Gymboree. I love that store, they have the cutest childrens clothing. I even got a coordinating sweater for Nathan to wear for their Christmas pictures. Well, she was born and Christmas had come and gone and we never made it to Portrait Innovations for the pictures. I just had her Valentine pics done last Friday so I wasn't sure if I'd still do them. I tried on her Christmas dress yesterday and it was just so precious on her but was getting dangerously short. She is a tall girl and the dress is 0-3 months. I decided to get their Christmas pictures done afterall, even though they are a month late, so I could have some pictures of Nathan and Autumn together and in the cute outfits I got them.
I got Nathan's pictures taken every month his first year so I could put a wallet from each month of him in this really neat frame I got at Pottery Barn Kids. I plan to do the same with Autumn but I want to keep it consistant with Nathan's frame (ie: Valentine pose, baptism outfit, etc.).
Next month I plan to do her baptism gown and it'll be free because Olan Mills gives you a free package for having a new baby if you come in before they are 3 months. This will be perfect since I don't need more then one pose of her in her baptism gown.
Anyway, here are the pictures from today... Nathan did so well, I so worried he would not cooperate but, wow, he loved the attention and was all smiles. Autumn on the other hand was fussy but we did get in some smiles. I was glad I did her Valentine pics last Friday because there was no way she would have been in the mood for an outfit change. So, it all worked out for the best.
