WAIT until you guys see these pictures!!
Oh my goodness. They are too good.
You might remember last year, we hired a photographer for the kids 1st birthday. And I was so happy with her work and how she captured our day, I decided to get pictures taken for the kids 2nd birthday as well.
Unfortunately, she wasn’t available but referred us to a friend and fellow photog, Kate Miller at Captivating Imagery. And as it turned out, Kate wasn’t available until May so we just pushed it off a few weeks.
And then it rained on our scheduled day…so it was pushed back till June. I honestly thought these pictures might never be taken! But then everything fell into place and we lucked out with the most beautiful day on June 17th. It was so worth the wait!!
Kate came well prepared with these little chairs…perfect size for our babes. And we settled under a tree at the pond by our house.
We sang Happy Birthday 87 times and jumped around like fools.
Fortunately, the kids thought we were hilarious and gave us a round of applause for our efforts.
Then we headed to the dock for some family shots
The kids didn’t warm up right away…
But then they got into it.
We stopped at our playground for some action shots
The swings are always a good time
And the slide…
Think he’s a fan of the slide??
I’d say yes.
We walked back to the house for some shots on the porch.
Fynnlee, can you pick Miss Kate a flower?
I did it!
My flowers look pretty great, right?
I think they’re starting to hit their maximum tolerance at this point.
We just wanted one more shot with Jacob…and when I brought him out, he knocked Greyson down the concrete steps. Party’s over! Whomp Whomp (not to worry, he was fine)
I cannot say enough good things about Kate and her mad photography skills. She is so good with kids (she’s a Mom too!), very professional and exceptionally accommodating. And she lives right in Cranberry! Win-win-WIN!
And a huge thank you to my super patient husband who agreed to our 7:30 am (YIKES) shoot time and never stopped smiling. You’re a trooper Jerry! xo
