TubaDad has been assembling a whole bunch of crazy photography equipment so I can take seamless white photos. Yesterday, he worked furiously in the garage most of the day setting it all up and saying plenty of words that I hope the girls don't learn for a long time. While he was toiling away, the girls played, napped, and played some more (the new fave game is Crazy Eights), and I sewed Ro's top (to make it smaller), gathered some props I thought would be fun, and posed for innumerable test shots. I think he did a pretty good job. We still need to iron everything out, including some problems we had with intermittent strobe firing, but all in all things went well. I got some great shots of the whole setup, so in case you're curious what the heck we have in the garage (besides a raccoon), we'll write up the whole shebang and post that next. Happy 4th of July, may your day be full of fireworks, family, and everything that makes you grin. PS: Folks always asks what the girls are wearing, and these outfits kind of amuse me, so here it is upfront. Ree is wearing the little dress I found at a thrift store a few months ago, and Ro is wearing a red top from Old Navy (I could only find a size 6 so I had to sew the straps up to make it smaller) and a white skirt that we got as a hand-me-down about two years ago.
