We went to visit family in Washington, Jason's Mother and sister live in a charming beach town. What an ideal setting I thought, so I bought Viola and Oona adorable matching(ish) outfits for our Holiday card photos.
We arrived to Westport on a day where it wasn't raining and the light was amazing. Poor Oona was under the weather but still in good spirits. It was cold, but not too cold. Since I knew it would rain the remainder of our trip I decided we needed to attempt the shoot now or never.
In my mind, the girls would be seated in front of the tree but the ground was wet and I feared Viola would push Oona off onto the ground..... I love the light, the chair would only fit in the shade. Viola did not wish to cooperate, so we tried our best.
I then thought we could hike to the beach and get some cute photos of the girls sitting on some drift wood..... the hike to the beach is gorgeous and was interesting. I couldn't see my feet through the grass, and I was wearing Oona.... was a workout up and down some hills. The view was breathtaking.
Viola had borrowed her cousin Reuben's fire helmet and sword and insisted her Auntie Anna wear it when she didn't want to.
When we got to the beach, Viola wanted to play with the sand and Oona was tired, so that idea went out the window as well.
I will most likely end up photographing the girls in my studio for their Christmas card.... even though the images were a bust for my initial idea, I wanted to share them with you all.
I am so thankful for our girls. Viola and her nonstop energy and explosive personality, you never know what she's going to say or do. It's a constant and hilarious surprise daily. Oona is all smiles and has such a sweet and sensitive nature. I love that she still wants to cuddle and thinks I'm hilarious.
