Lately I have had the opportunity to take family photos for some of our friends. Most of these families happen to have two kiddos in the baby/toddler stage. It can be stressful at times trying to get at least one good shot where everyone is looking at the camera. But, it is ten times more stressful being on the other side. I know from experience! About 6 weeks ago we had Carey take our family pictures at the beach. Don't ask me what I was thinking when I chose the beach! It is hard enough coordinating outfits, getting everyone ready, and then having everyone smile simultaneously at the camera. Throw a little sand in there with a toddler and a baby and you have a recipe for disaster. Let's just say I was sweating by the time our hour session was finished! Despite the craziness, Carey managed to get some good pictures - especially of the little ones.
During our session, we discovered that our little Lexi loves the sand! I actually am quite excited about this. Another little beach baby - I am already looking forward to next summer!
I just adore these next few pictures. I think it shows the tenderness of Declan and Lexi's relationship.
I can just imagine what next year will be like when they are both moving!
