This weekend my husband did a couple holiday portrait sessions in our dining room – we shoved all the furniture into the living room and set up a backdrop, lights, the whole shebang. And well… we took down the backdrop but the dining table and such is still in the living room and some of the lights are still up. As that it is COLD in the DC area this week (we should get snow today), we took pictures inside and took advantage of a big open space and one light still up.
These pics also show what attention hogs the other two gals in the house can be – Emerson wanted to be in a picture and Cindy the dog is always there when there's a camera!
This morning was really hectic, so we took three pictures and these are them – glad at least my eyes were open for them! I kept it super easy for a busy morning by going to my dress collection – far easier to get dressed when you only need to worry about one piece of clothing!
So I got my hair “did” last night by the wonderful Kathleen at Bananas Hair Salon. I asked to have my natural color, but a shade darker and a bit richer, but not red. Also just a trim and bring back my bit of sideswept bangs. Pictures don't do my hair justice – it looks so healthy and lush! I think in the New Year I will do something a bit more bold for my hair, but for now I just wanted healthy-looking hair again.
