Gigglefest 2009 - Part 1

What do you get when you take two girls, let them dress up in their Mommy's clothing, old jewelry, heels, her REAL glasses and even a bit of makeup? In our case, you get lots and lots of giggles.

Leila has been wanting to get in my closet a lot these days, which means her little shadow, Mia, does, too. On Friday, I let them go for it. They had several wardrobe changes. I just stepped aside, didn't ask for poses, and captured some of my favorite images... and not because of any great photography on my part. On the contrary, I wish I would have done a lot of things differently. I also had a lot of camera shake because I was laughing so hard behind the camera. But these are some of my favorite images because I was able to capture my girls just having fun in the moment.

I took many photos that day. This is part 1 - the Gigglefest.

Totally fuzzy, but I love it anyway. I love how Leila is smushed against the wall because she was laughing so hard. Her top (my top) kept falling down and the girls thought that was SO hilarious!

You captured the girls so well....I could just hear those giggles!! They look like they are having so much fun:)

Sarah loves to follow me around as I get ready....she has been very into makeup lately, but I can't wait for her to have a little sis to play dress up with!!

Hope you have a great week!

Love all the bouncing and giggling! GREAT idea to let the girls wear your clothes. Jia raided my closet the other day and we laughed and laughed, and she was just wearing my t-shirt, not anything fancy! Thanks for the fun idea!
