I was finally able to get the kids to sit for some portraits.
Well, mostly sit anyway... with a bit of running away.
From these shots you'd think they were super-cooperative. In reality there was some bribery, much pleading, and a whole lot of blurry pictures. God, I love digital. Back in the day I would have gone through so much film.
It actually was a pretty nice day...not overly cold. So we moved it outside for a few minutes. Until Theo fell on his face. Ugh.
As I mentioned previously, the dress is altered from a pattern. Theo's vest was made without a pattern from an example and the tie was made from this tutorial by Ottobre Design except a little smaller.
Aurora was very pleased with the twirl-a-bility of the dress. She looked at me quite seriously and with reverence said "Thank you, mom, for making me this beautiful dress. I love it."
