Last Sunday morning, Chris and I hopped in the Traverse with all 3 kiddies and drove up 495 to Holliston, MA. to see Amy Lewis, or as my kids call her, “picture-taking Amy.” She is the owner of Sitting Pretty Portraits, and has been photographing my children since Aidan was about 3 months old. Bunnies and chicks, or mass? Yes, we skipped church on Sunday to have the kids portraits taken with chicks and bunnies. Maybe that’s the reason why Emily fell down the stairs in her dress thirty minutes before leaving the house.
Matching green polos (don’t even get me started on the outfit contemplations and the trips to Wrentham.) How it all came together was quite miraculous. I bought about 32 Ralph Lauren polos of various sizes and colors and had no dress for the little miss. But leave it to baby-sitter of the year to call me from Marshalls in Franklin to tell me she found a navy blue Ralph Lauren dress with green trim that matches the same green set of polos I bought for the boys. Baby-sitter/personal shopper. Did I ever mention how much I love her? And yes, I have my receipts!
Amy did some amazing work, yet again. The chicks and bunnies were adorable and Owen only tried to snap their necks a few times. Aidan was obsessed with the hard boiled eggs and the carrot. We got some terrific smiles from all three. HALLELUJAH!
