If your child is fortunate to have grandparents like my daughter has, he or she receives adorable outfits to wear for each season or holiday. Even if it is only worn once, I try to make it a point to take good quality photos of my daughter in the outfit and deliver to the gift-giver as a thank you. The best of intentions are not always successful if M is cranky or uncooperative, but occasionally the odds fall in my favor and I end up capturing some nice portraits of her to share with the family. Even the photographer's child refuses to participate sometimes.
With spring in the air, and Easter upon us, I took M down to the grassy patch in our community to take some fun photos of her in a fluffy, floral dress from Nana. She was willing, excited to be the focus of attention, and ended up having a fun time running and rolling around the grass.
