A Backyard Wedding








This past weekend, I got to attend the lovely wedding of Lachelle... my babysitter! What are the rules with this... can I still ask her to watch my little one even though she's a Mrs.? Not sure. They didn't have a photographer and since I know NOTHING about photography and DO NOT yet have a nice camera, and am ready to birth a baby at any moment, I decided to offer up my services. :) Just wanted to make sure they had someone, even someone who didn't know what they were doing, snapping photos all night. And maybe I wanted an excuse to borrow a friend's Nikon and try it out. Thank you so much Cort and Shalaine, I'm not really sure it's appropriate to ask to borrow someones brand new $700 toy. Hope you're still up for friendship and scrabble tournaments. I'm even more convinced I need the camera. And at least two lenses. So this is just an excuse to look at a few of the pictures. Chanel, thanks for helping... especially on the squatting shots... (like the cake) I lost those muscles a while back.

Lillie those pictures are amazing. You sure look like you know what you are doing. So, no more pretending that you don't. I want to see more...

Lacy said...

What a beautiful bride! How fun!

Maggie said...

holy cow! those are GORGEOUS pictures! so, um, i was wanting to take some family pictures next month..... ;)

Sarie said...

These are beautiful, great job Lillie. Someone should have taken a photo of you, trying to squat, a 9 month pregnant photographer. That would have been swell.

Kym said...

Lillie, they look amazing! Where were you on my wedding?! :)

Well done. You win "the most productive in your last two weeks of pregnancy" award. The action shots looked perfectly posed. I thought that everything looked beautiful and you captured that.

Kodi said...

Wow! That can't be just the camera. . . those look so good! Way to go. I am SURE they are so excited about those.

Jill said...

Lillie, You are a good amatuer photographer. I am so excited for you to have two girls. You can also say "me my girls are best of friends".

You are a natural! Those are great photos, Lillie. You definitely need the camera!

Auzigirl said...

Hey those are great, just think what you can do when you have your own.

It's offical: you need the camera. Lil, you're amazing! Those pictures are lovely, and you are a sweetheart to give them a lifelong lasting gift like this. And I concur that it would have been fantastic to see your beautiful self balancing to get just the right shot - a week before you give birth! Who are you?

Rebecca said...

These are outstanding. And I'm with Sarie- I want photos of the photog. And yes, total proof that you need the camera. So glad we're sure on THAT one. If only we had proof on the jogger. 50/50 though--you buy one you're sure about, one you're pretty sure about. Do it!

As a married person with no children I would still babysit! I offer up my services anytime. We love practicing and pretending we're more of a family when we babysit other peoples kids.
