Although I take tons (and tons!) of photos on my own, and they aren't half bad, I feel the need to "document" various points in time with professional shots, too.
So, for Pearl's first birthday, she and I made a trip to the old portrait studio ...
Shirt: Genuine Kids (thrifted for $1.00)
Jeans: Old Navy (thrifted for $0.50)
Shoes: Keds (thrifted for $1.50)
She was cooperative, yet oh-so-serious the entire time ...
And, of course, I left spending entirely too much money anyway!
At least I won't feel the need to return until she turns one and a half ... That gives me six months to start saving up for next time!
