Official 9 Months Picture

Tonight we met my family for dinner at the new Frontera Fresco - a quick walk-up style restaurant run by Rick Bayless (he has the PBS cooking show One Plate at a Time). It was pretty good! I had a coupon for a free 8x10 at Picture People, and there was one nearby, so I figured I'd attempt a quick photo shoot for Eli at 9 months. I think it turned out pretty well for being at 7:30 p.m. when he usually goes to bed... :)
I was deciding between this one and another one where he was standing up, holding on to a stool. I probably should have gotten that one - don't you just hate buyer's remorse?! I know I can go back and pay the $15 (I have a coupon for more prints) for another 8x10, but I really just wanted my free print! Here's the picture:

What a fun picture. I am glad that you enjoyed an evening out and that you used your free coupon.

I think you chose a great one. Sounds like a fun night and a great dinner. I love free coupons for pictures. That way you aren't mad if you the session doesn't go well or the pictures don't turn out as well. When I took Rubie in for her 4 month pictures, she had a complete blow out right as we put her up to have the pictures done. I went to change her and had no diapers in the bag. I had to leave and buy diapers and then come back and wait for another little girl to finish her photo session...but, I got my free 8x10 - yeah! Anyway, Eli is just as cute as ever. Thanks for posting the picture.

I think he looks great, but I totally know what you mean when it comes to buyers remorse. :) I'm sure you picked the cutest one. He is a handsome boy in any picture he takes. :) Now I need to get out and go take Katelyn in for her pictures.

I love that picture. Obviously, I haven't seen the other one, but I couldn't imagine not keeping this cutie. I am impressed that you get his official pictures taken... poor Lake. I have enough home-footage of the kid though. Your Eli is so stinkin' cute, I need him to feel better so I can give him some kisses.

I think the picture is really cute! I need to use those coupons one of these days - I have a friend who is really good about going and using them each time she gets one and I have never done it because I don't want to feel like I need to buy more prints. I should just go do it!

I still can't get over how stinkin' cute Eli is!!!! I love the picture and good for you for using your coupon. I HATE getting pictures taken of my girls. I dread it the whole time. Maybe if I ever have a boy I won't dread it as much because I won't have to worry about matching hair clips, etc. It seems like trying to figure out their makes me not want to schedule any appointments! But maybe one day they'll actually enjoy getting their hair done. :)
