The same photographer that took our pics last year showed up at our house bright and early to start shooting our family. I'm in love with the lifestyle photoshoots people do so I worked like a madwoman to redecorate our living room I was worried because a lot of work needs to be done on the house, but Barbie captured the good parts so well :)
Peanut was not trying to hold still. It's not my favorite pic, but she did a great job capturing the best parts of our house.
After we did a few photos at home, we headed out to Coulon park which is close to our house.
I had a cute little banner hung behind us and we were going to have a "pimik," as Bug says, but we struggled so hard to get them to sit still.
I was worn out after the session. It was constant, "Come over here," "Stay over there," "Look at the camera," "B make sure they can't see your hand," "Sit down that's not safe...." Last year was so much easier because only Peanut was walking and he was still pretty unstable. It was easy to put them somewhere and know that's where they'd stay.
Last year we were able to get me alone with both boys and with each boy individually. B did the same thing and then we did family pictures. This year, we got some bad ones of B with both boys but we didn't even attempt me with them.
The other thing I would change is I wouldn't have worn the white cardigan, I like the colors I chose for everyone to wear and then there's this stark white blob which also did nothing for my figure. I should have at least belted it.
I think next year we'll do photos in our home; some of my favorite pictures from this day are the boys just being themselves at home. Maybe by then we'll have a cute bedroom and the backyard will be landscaped a little better so we will have plenty of options.
