I’ve had this picture in my head for months now – Gabriel dressed in a wooly, warm, white knit outfit hamming it up for the camera in a winter paradise. Only one problem – it hasn’t snowed here this winter! Being the determined little photographer once I get an idea in my head, we decided to take a day road trip and head to Flagstaff. Even Flagstaff didn’t have much snow, so we headed all the way up to the ski area. Luckily, at this high elevation (about 9,200 ft) we found what I was looking for. Tree branches weighted down by fresh snow fall, and a beautiful winter wonderland.
I knew we’d have to make this quick as no baby is going to put up with the cold temperatures for very long. We left the heat of the car and I quickly found a nearby spot that was exactly what I was looking for. I got everything ready and then we brought in Gabriel. Luckily, he thought this was flat out amazing and was full of happy smiles! That only lasted about 2 minutes, however. Once he grew bored of the operation, he decided to make a break for it. One little fist went into the snow as he attempted to crawl away. He quickly yanked it back out, looked at it pitifully, and then burst into tears. That was the end of that! So – we drove 3 hours for 2 photos. But the good news is that these photos were TOTALLY worth it to me. I had a few other ideas in my head that I had wanted to do, but I am thrilled with what I got. I LOVE these. My baby is so sweet! On a side note, doesn’t it seem like I just had him?? How on earth did he get so big? Slow down, little buddy!
