Well, I've learned my lesson about photo shoots:
1) People with dark hair don't look good against dark backgrounds (hair disappears into the dark)
2) Do the laundry (I didn't have anything fancy so I went casual)
3) Keep your expectations low (mine are always high)
I feel like the bow, in most of these shots, looks like a giant bird is nesting in her head.
The photographer was really great in terms of working with a very serious Josephine to get her to smile - she did what she could. Check this link to see the available photos - they are available to order, if you like.
This one here is my favorite. But then, I tend to prefer black and white in general.
Of course, for a lot more money, you can schedule a longer shoot outdoors or wherever with time for clothing changes...
