Me and My Girls

For the last two years I have had this little idea/dream in my head.  I wanted to do a fun, beautiful, magical photo shoot with my two girls.  I knew who I wanted to do the shoot, it was just the logistics of having both my girls home and finding the time to do it.  Well, I decided this summer had to be it.  Tessa was headed to college and it was just going to get harder and harder.

Thanks to my two pretty girls and my amazing photographer friend Meg my dream became a reality.  Meg and I both had a vision in our head what we wanted this to be and I think we both realized that vision.

And also, thanks to my husband Jim, the prop man!  He followed us around, hung clotheslines, moved chairs  and did what he was asked to do!  He’s a good man.

There were so many wonderful pictures it was really hard to choose but here are some of my favorites.

Now do you think I could get my boys to do a photo shoot with me??

    Lovely photos, Leigh Anne! You look like you could be sisters, too! Now for the boys…maybe if tractors, mud, and sports equipment were your only props!

    So Sweet. What treasures you have! I wish I could get my boys to take some photos with me (I don’t have any girls) – and I don’t think my husband would agree to take the pics. :( You are blessed!

    Beautiful! I remember you mentioning you wanted to do one, aren’t you happy you did? Our vintage picnic is still one of Laurissa’s favorite pre- college highlights!

    My billable rate for having my picture taken is $150/hr. Have your people contact my people if you want to make it happen.

    Leigh Ann, looking at those photos made me well with tears. I don’t know how you did that shoot without getting emotional. Especially, since it was marking both girls being off to college. I think of my two daughter 12, 11 and cannot imagine how I will be when they leave the nest. Those photos captured beautifuil memories and I think I will do the same with my girls when the time comes. You are blessed with a beautiful family.

    Great pictures! I love all 3 of your outfits. Where are the belt and shoes from that you wore?

    I know you’ve done a similar post in the past, but you should do a post on how you picked out the outfits for this shoot with your daughters.

      My shoes were on clearance at Target – got them for less than ten dollars at the end of summer. The belt is a few years old and came from Anthropologie. I will do a post or a newsletter issue on how I picked out the outfits – thanks for the idea!
