meredith & co.
Every time I have scheduled a session with Meredith, it rains on the day of the shoot. Now, when the session is indoors anyway, no biggie. But when we had planned to go outside, it kind of throws a kink in the plans. As the date of Miss Lilly's 9 month session neared, the weather man was predicting rain. Lots and lots of rain. And I held my breath. For a long, long time. Having already rescheduled this session once because of previous rain, I was in a panic as to when I'd be able to fit it in again ... But, alas, the rains did not fall. And I was finally able to photograph the little strawberry blonde outside. In the sun. And in the flowers. And it was so much fun. In a little under an hour, Lilly had four outfit changes, several different scenic changes, and in spite of not eating breakfast or taking a nap, was an absolute angel. And oh how she loved to snuggle with The Crazy Lady with the Camera. And I couldn't get enough of it! Toby (but you can call him Troy; I do) was 20 pounds lighter than the last time I saw him. And if he had not been such a help with the reflector, I really would have hated him. Meredith was as lovely as ever, sporting her Jackie O-ish dress, and already planning the Fall Session at the Farm for Lilly's one year portraits. Guys, thanks for the fun. For finally not bringing rain. And for bringing me my Lilly Bean! Enjoy your sneaky!
