The "B" family...

So much fun!
And so much work!
This was without a doubt, the toughest photo shoot I've done.

It was pouring rain. We were hiding under trees and awnings to catch some pictures.
Twin baby girls absolutely refused to look at me at the same time.
I think they had a plan to make me sweat.
It worked.


Gorgeous big sister who's 9, I believe.







At some point you give in and realize that twin toddlers will rule.
You just follow their lead.
I think in the end, we captured the fun, love, and chaos in this family!



(I always say this, but I have to because my schedule is filling up. If you're in the Central Kansas or Southwest Missouri areas and would like portraits, please email me for details.)

Okay, you got the picture, but did anyone stop her before she stuck her tongue in the puddle? This is the kind of thing that keeps me up wondering at night.

I look at your blog almost every day through the Macs but have never commented. However, the photo of the little girl trying to lick the puddle is amazing. You should enter it in a contest. I have two granddaughters who might very well do the same thing. That must be why I LOVE the photo.

Diana Elaine said...

What cute kids! Ahhh to be young again! LOL

I miss my sons, they're all grown now and live on the other side of the US, but I'm also proud of them, so I guess it's a trade off. :-)

Take advantage ... they grow up SO fast!
