A month ago, I headed back up to beloved Estes Park for Grace’s 9-month Milestone Session! When Dawn and I were planning this session, we started talking about things the Bodins do as a family, and immediately thought of the grocery store. What’s more everyday life than that?!

Grace’s favorite thing about the grocery store is getting to sit with her very own bag of chips. I chuckled when Dawn first told me this, and watching Gracie’s joy when the bag was placed next to her in the cart was a hoot.

 

If you’re thinking a session in the grocery store sounds ridiculous and embarrassing, can I ask you to slow your roll for a minute? While these might not seem like the pictures you want to display on your annual Christmas Card, what pictures will show your child’s personality more? The one where they were forced to sit still and smile nicely for the camera, or the one where they get to giggle with joy at the prospect of a crinkly bag of tortilla chips next to them in the cart? I’ll let you decide for yourself, but I wager you’ll remember the tortilla chips far more than that perfectly posed picture.

From the grocery store, we headed on to Inkwell & Brew, the Bodin family’s favorite (Mine, too!) local coffee shop. It’s a warm gathering place where I am always drooling over their stationery, and friends are always coming and going. Let’s just say Gracie was very popular.

Taylor, Dawn, and Gracie,
I always knew you guys were fantastic, but you got way cooler as soon as Dawn suggested heading to the grocery store for this session. Real life for the win. Thank you for your friendship, support, and letting me document this first year with your sweet girl!
