Photo Shoot

Last weekend, I took advantage of the fact that I had nothing to do and arranged with my sister to have a little photo shoot with her daughter, Quorra (pronounced Cora). No one has gotten any decent pictures of my sweet niece since she was born, mostly cell phone snapshots and we all know those aren't frame-worthy, so she asked me to take a few.

So Saturday morning, camera in hand, I was armed with a few inspiration shots I gathered from Pinterest...


...and we got to work. I set up a laundry basket filled with fluffy pillows, threw a black towel over it and set the baby in front of the back door.

I'm the first to tell you that I'm no photographer, and even the dog was questioning my set up.


But we forged ahead and I'm glad we finally have a few decent pictures my sister can share of her beautiful baby girl.













Hopefully, I can sneak over to take a few more pictures of the whole family, daddy and puppy included. We did manage to get in one good picture of Quorra with her big (and I mean BIG) brother.


And, of course, I couldn't leave without getting a picture of her with her Aunt Jessica.

I'm so bummed you weren't here to take pictures of B. Even though I borrowed your camera I SUCKED at taking good pictures of him. And for the diaperless shots we were scred sh!tless to do them. B's potty habits was the worst when he was that small and it seemed dangerous to attempt lol. You all look so perfect in your pictures I'm so jealous :)
