tea party

Thanks to Shutterfly I have this hot new lens on my camera. Be ready for an onslaught of photos. 😉

Lest you believe that Mary is always looking sweetly into the camera, here is the expression in 2/3 of her photos. As Mary says:

“That’s my favorite face!”

    Precious! I wonder if Josh would do that in a couple of years with Amanda Jane??? And that dress is to die for (you know what I mean:)

    Great photos (as usual), Michelle! That dress Mary is wearing is beyond amazing. LOVE it! Mary is adorable! My mom, Sarah & I stopped by your house today to take a peak at Matilda Jane…no one home 🙁 Oh well, probably good for our budgets! See you next Tuesday!

    These are stunning Michelle! What lens did you get? I think it should be my next purchase…and once that’s out of the way I think Mary’s dress will be next in line ;0). Gorgeous.

    I have one word to describe your husband: patient. And you, my dear cousin, are a gifted woman. I am ever impressed with your photos. Really, you should come to NY. I have lots o girls for picture taking!

    I just can’t keep quiet anymore–these pictures are so incredibly gorgeous! I’ve been “spying” on your blog for a couple of months now–hopped over from Ruth’s blog. And I have just been thoroughly enjoying your writing and photography.
    What an amazing and beautiful family you have. Your blog makes me wish I lived next door to you guys, just so I could be friends with the Lehnardt’s!

    YOU DID IT! You totally beat me to it and did and OUSTANDING job at the tea party – the dress just steals the show!!! If you are inclined to send those outgrown cast-offs to Maine, I have a little princess here who would give them an extended life! 🙂

    Beautiful work!! Hey, you’ve gotta give lens info….you can’t just leave us photo junkies hanging on for the details! And….why is it thanks to Shutterfly? Did you win something? 🙂 (email me if its easier jkroyATroadrunner.com)

    So gorgeous! The one of Mary spinning and you see the ribbons tied all down her back is gasp-worthy. Just beautiful.
