Picture problems

So it seems Kara doesn't like to have her picture taken at professional places. We went today to get her pictures made, the first ones of just her, and she wasn't having it. I had been waiting forever to have some nice pictures taken of her and today was THE day. Actually I had her scheduled for last week, but when we got there we were informed that we would have to reschedule due to some fumes coming into the building. I was more than happy to reschedule being that it smelled to high heaven. I didn't want my baby or myself to be exposed to anything that may be harmful.
So anyway, I should have known the pics weren't going to go well when Kara decided to skip her morning nap. She always naps between 9:30 and 10:00am. This morning notsomuch!!! She took a little cat nap around lunch time, which proved to be not nearly enough for my little sweetheart. When I got there she was asleep in her car seat. They told me to just let her sleep until they got everything set up. She woke up about 5 minutes later so I went and changed her clothes. Things were going great. The first pictures were going to be her on her stomach with a black background. Really beautiful. I laid her down, she smiled a few times before the lady had a chance to click and then she started pouting. The lady got a few of this face. It was adorable, but then she started crying. Needless to say throughout the hour and a half time period they had set aside for us she wasn't happy. She would get posed, smile a few times and start wailing. It was pretty sad. Come to find out she was exhausted (which I kind of figured). Poor baby. She fell asleep while getting her picture done. So we got a few different shots of her sleeping. The last one is of me holding her with her sleeping on my shoulder in just her diaper cover. I had no intention of being in the pics. I didn't even have make up on, YUCK! But the photographer convinced me that only part of my face would be in the photo and she would make it either sepia or black and white so it wouldn't matter that I had no make up on. She showed me one of the pics and I was impressed. It looked pretty good, even in color. I was so very impressed with the portrait studio. It was probably the most PROFESSIONAL place I had ever been. A hundred times nicer than Sears. They specially do the lighting for each pose. It was pretty neat to see. I was very impressed and well I should be at the prices. I was kind of disappointed that I won't get to see the pics until next Tuesday. They take time to edit and touch up everything before you decide what you want to buy. I am just so excited to see what she comes up with. I bet she took 50-60 pics. I think we did about 10 different poses, so it should be interesting. It takes 3-5 weeks for delivery of the pics so when I get them in I will have to scan them for all to see. I am already planning Kara's next visit there, that is AFTER she's had a nice nap. lol
I just wanted to add this pic for her daddy to see. Nick, I think she's looks like you in this pic a little. What do you think? We miss you so very much. We love you bunches!
