Allie was baptized on May 30. But it was really hot that day, and I was focused on the gathering to take place after the baptism. So when we got home from church, we immediately changed Allie’s clothes and I later realized I never took any nice pictures of her in the baptism dress! So we had a photo shoot last Sunday.
This is the dress I was baptized in, as well as my brothers and sisters and some of my cousins and even a couple second cousins. Its older than me and as one person remarked on baptism day, “You can’t buy a gown like this anymore.” The blanket/shawl in the picture is also a family heirloom.
Photo shoots are a lot tougher now that Allie is mobile. I remember doing a photo shoot of Allie in her Christmas dress and it was a lot easier to take pictures because she just laid on her back! I’m actually surprised I got these good pictures because she wouldn’t stay still very long. She’d roll over and crawl away. And when she did stay still, my camera delayed in taking the picture!
