One of the many problems with not attending more than one day of school a week is that you miss school portrait day. Admittedly school 'portraits' are not usually particularly representative of our children's growth and beauty as WE see it, but it's still nice to have something current to send to the family at Christmas.
Babygirl left school early on picture day. She missed school entirely on photo makeup day. This year, for the first time ever we won't have a set of school photos of her. She hates having her picture taken anyway - her body has changed so much in the last ten months due to the anti-rejection medications that she's become uncomfortable about it.
But the beauty of having family is that people have talents that I lack and are willing to share them. So my thanks and undying admiration go to my (local) sister-in-law. She is a photographer of rare talent: landscapes, portraits, animals, weddings, babies - she rocks them all. And she took pictures of Babygirl that will allow her to see just how beautiful she really is. This is the preview shot:
