Our Professional Photo Session 2012

What a nightmare it was. I had a bright idea to take the kids to the mall that late morning to play and have lunch, walk around a bit, then come home so they would nap and be all rested for the pictures last night. And it TOTALLY backfired…my 1 year old took a 10 minute nap, and she normally takes TWO 2 hour naps. My 4 year old was fine though, which was great. My little Olive Bug, she is usually the BEST baby, I mean she really is so good, never cries, is always happy and smiling…and she HATED the picture studio. Absolutely HATED it. First pose I sat her next to her sister and she started bawling…although it’s a VERY cute photo and may just be our Christmas card…so here it is!!
