And then, towards the end of the photo session, we did one last change of clothes and handed her a favorite toy. I had dad right behind me to draw her attention towards the lens (while mom hung on to her from behind) and got this image.
(Photographers note: All of these images were taken on a high table so that all of us adults could do what we needed to do, from a comfortable position. For all of the images where she is sitting up, I made sure that one of the parents was holding her from behind, so that she would not fall forward and off the table! In the first 4 images of this blog entry, I used Adobe Photoshop to edit out the parent's hand, which was to the right of the child (and to our left).
