I took these photos of the boys about 2 weeks ago. I wanted some "American Summer" photos of them. I take a lot of photos of my boys with the camera but these are what Scott and I like to refer to as "real" photos. The kind where I get them dressed in cute outfits, fine an awesome location, and wait for the perfect lighting. We don't do photos like this very often but when we do, I just love them. I'm really proud of these pictures. Scott was working late so I did it all on my own. I like to have his help with "important" photos because it's SO hard to take pictures of two young children by yourself. Usually one of us is putting them back in the right spot (because toddlers don't stand/sit still in case you didn't know) and behind the photographer trying to get them to smile. But this was all on me. And even though these pictures were being taken when the boys should have been in bed, they cooperated pretty darn well! Here are a few of my favorites.
