1st Studio Portrait!

This week is marked by Rudy’s first trip to the Sears Portrait Studio.  Although we have a number of gorgeous pictures of Rudy thanks to Greg Lawler and his artistic eye, we really needed a cheezy portrait studio pic in celebration of his 1st birthday to complete the cheezy portrait studio collection we have in our hallway gallery of all the kids.  Rudy was a cooperative model and the photographer and I did all kinds of creative “tricks” to get the desired poses…as always, Rudy put up with Mommy’s shinanagins and this is what resulted…
We got it!!  The classic blue backgroud with goofy smile!!  Unfortunately, there was no controlling the hair...I did try!

  4. Hello:)
    The pictures of Rudy really inspire me to go to work every day. He is the most precious little thing and to see him so happy, and looking so healthy, is a really blessing to me. I am so sorry for the loss of his little friend and I can’t imagine the grief his parents are going though. We have had some losses in the PICU recently and it is truly hard on the heart. But these beautiful pictures of Rudy make me smile, and encourage me to go back to work! Wishing you all the best,

  5. Great pics! Rudy is as photogenic as ever…not even Sears can make him look bad! I especially love the “not-so-happy” picture! What great expressions Rudy has. He definitely belongs in the Geyling family gallery!!

    Love to all!

  6. Everytime I see pictures of Rudy–especially the ones with his brothers and sister something happens to my heart. I feel so much warmth and love for all of you. I’m truly humbled to be able to see this special journey unfold.
