Rosebasket dresses and shaving cream

You know those families that you've just known forever, the ones that are a part of childhood summers and teenage holidays and grown-up weddings, the ones that you know will be there forever into the future, too?  The Roes are like that for our family.  Aunt Leslie and Uncle Brian are some of my parents' dearest friends, we visited them every summer growing up, we went skiing in France with their son Daniel this past March, and Aunt Leslie sewed an exquisite dress that Lena wore for her baptism.

Aunt Leslie has an online business called Rosebasket in which she makes heirloom christening gowns and baby clothing.  Yesterday Aunt Leslie came over to my parents' house to take pictures of Lena modeling some of her heirloom gowns.  Doesn't Lena look charming in the first photo?!  But don't be fooled...

Other parts of the photo shoot went like this, with tears and crazy antics:

Interspersed with moments like this (there's my pretty girl... half-asleep and ready for a nap!):

And the photo shoot finished with this:

In a last-ditch attempt to get Lena to laugh for just one more dress, my mom put shaving cream all over her face and did a crazy dance.  Despite all her efforts, Lena merely looked like a bemused princess (see the best photos here).   And once the dress was off she made a beeline for my mom's face and rubbed shaving cream alllll over her little body.

The photo shoot ended as do many fun photo shoots: in the bathtub!
