A whole lot of sugar!

At 4pm this afternoon, we pulled into a parking lot in Deep Ellum for our photo session with Jen. After weeks of anxiety ridden shopping for the perfect outfit for Maggie, I was ready to go. My solution--bring a mobile closet! I had options, but I don't have the eye for putting things together. I had twelve outfits, three pairs of shoes, and five different bows for her hair. Would I have combined rainboots, a tutu, and a shirt that most definitely matches a different skirt all together? No, I wouldn't. Did I think my child was TO DIE FOR dressed in her tutu, rainboots, and shirt? Oh yeah, I did. Simply delicious, I tell you. I could've just eaten her up.

There was no love for Mama during the session. For Daddy, she clutched his face and planted a giant kiss with a look of complete adoration and love. When Jen suggested I pop in the shot to hug them both, she screamed, pushed me away, and refused to look at the camera. She hugged him. She ran from me. Poor Mama!

We brought the potty. I had the plan to have it in the car, and use it when necessary during our stops at the perfect urban backdrops (bright blue brick walls, white doorways, pink and teal doors, etc). I just knew it was the perfect plan. Maggie didn't. The instant she was placed on a potty inside her car, she made it clear that she was having NONE OF THAT! She cried and yelled "NO POTTY!!" So, in an effort to not ruin the session before it began, we conceded and threw on the diaper. Let me tell you--the child was very happy to switch back to her panties when the session was over and we were safely at the CPK bathroom at dinner. So happy that she had to use that potty three times during my dinner. Oh fun. Oh, and yes, we did go to dinner still dressed in the tutu and rainboots! Precious!

I can't WAIT to see the final products of her photo session today. I couldn't be more pleased that I have someone with the caliber of talent of Jen Weintraub to capture my sweet, precocious little Munchie. Thank you, Jen, for your patience and love to our Maggie. You're the best! Thank you my sweet sugar baby--We're so lucky to have you in our life.

Be on the lookout for our Scott session with Sugar Photography (no pressure, Jen, none whatsoever!!). Coming soon!!


UPDATE as of 10pm--

Jen Weintraub ROCKS!!! She just sent me four incredible pictures of our session!! These are just teasers of the finals to come, but with her permission, I am sharing them here. Jen--you're AMAZING!!! And yes, you're right--"girlfriend ROCKED it!"

OK--I've GOT to get back to the gym. Yuck!


Want to guess how Maggie felt about going potty in her diaper? Hilarious!

My gosh, I can't believe how grown-up little Miss Maggie is! It seems like just yesterday you (well, first Dana) blogged that you were pregnant. She is so gorgeous!

Jennifer said...

My gosh she is breathtaking - what a little beauty Maggie is! And I had to lol at your stories. I JUST got my daughter potty-trained (she'll soon be 4) and I'm working on my 2 year old I feel your pain. :) Hang in there - she'll have it down in no time. And a big awwww on the no mama love - my daughter does that to me. She'll want daddy and for no reason at all she'll look at me and say "I'm so mad at mommy". It usually is something like because I went to work. :( But sometimes it's something silly I can't help but smile over. Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures. She's a doll!
