A couple weeks ago my friend Anna took Lilah and Eden to the park in which she took tons of pictures. Of course I love pictures of my girls so I’m posting some.
I love the colors in the photos and I think I might get some printed so I can hang them in their room.
She took them with a great digital camera so they came out with great quality.
Thanks Anna.
