Mia & AJ

Mia (4) and AJ (5) came to me in completely opposite temperaments. Mia took all of about three minutes to warm up and start the show. She put on a great performance and I couldn't help but take all sorts of pictures of those big brown eyes. AJ, on the other hand, was soooooooo not going to have his picture taken. He fought tooth and nail for a good forty five minutes. I pulled out all the stops trying to think of anything that would work. And then...I figured it out...his pets. Once he got started talking about them he couldn't help but smile just a little bit. I snapped the last 30 shots in about the last 30 seconds, and thankfully caught a happy AJ.

Avery & Olivia

I was so excited to get another chance to see Olivia. I took her pictures one year ago, and she came back for her two year photos. She came back much more mobile than the last time too :)Although most of the shots were supposed to be of Olivia, we enlisted big sister, Avery for some help. Olivia seemed much more interested to sit on the props when her big sister was right beside her. They both were hilarious. Most of the shots were in motion, but with a little entertainment we managed to get a few still shots too. I thought there were some really great moments captured, like the first one...
