Finally... 2 year old pictures...

I finally decided to take my crazy ones out to get some pictures. They were all over the place as I expected and when your husband is with you and wanting to be done in 10 minutes it turns out to be a fun situation:) I did get a few that I like, but I really wanted to get some pictures of them at this age because I know I will regret it if I don't. They are definately at their terrible two's already but somehow I still think they are the cutest things ever.

Not tack sharp, but I still love it because they are both somewhat behaving:)

Here is an outtake when Tate & Chloe were eyeing the candy.



this is a little smirk he does sometimes...

posing for candy.

another outtake, chloe always makes this face, so attractive eh?


I am taking 5 days off to enjoy some time with my best friend who is flying in from Georgia, I am thinking movies, shopping, thrift stores, and lots of food! Yeah, party time. Hopefully my husband will be up for staying home with the kids:)

Adorable!!!! They are beautiful "babies". I still call my two year old twins babies-- since they will always be MY babies! :) Glad you got some shots of your own kids-- I know it is harder to do!

Oh you brave, brave woman. And I say that not about the kids, but about the husband factor. If I took my husband out with me to photograph my twins it would last all of five minutes and he'd be shooting death stares into my back the whole time. I'd owe him forever. These guys, they just don't know how good they have it :). These pictures are adorable. Love the clothes and location! - Amy Lynden

LOVE THE COLOR IN THESE PHOTOS! Are these just outside your studio? You really have an eye for color. My little boy turned three in April and I still haven't done his 3 year old pictures! I know how hard it is to photograph your own child (and it always seems to get put on the back burner when you shoot for a living). My little boy makes a face similar to your daughter's....classic!

Jess said...

It's about time they get there 2 year shots...he he.
Remember why we started photography...it was to get great shots of our kids and now we don't take the time to do that anymore.

You've inspired me.
I am going to do my babies today and the same spot...don't kill -k.

I just tried to take my two youngest out yesterday, ages 4 and 3. I didn't even get one that was decent, lol. The little one loves to stick her tounge out. I am so envious of your skills, lol. Your kiddos are beyond beautiful!
