Two Terrific Two Year Olds!

We, Jennifer and I as the photographers, and Sam as the 'court jester', took Nehemiah's and Landon's two year portraits last week... and as usual, they were a delight! It was a little difficult at times, but it all turned out wonderfully in the end! And, no, I can't believe they are TWO already!

We had trouble getting Nehemiah to laugh at first... until Sam had this brilliant idea to throw leaves on top of my head... Nehemiah laughed at that to say the least! :-D Rocking... Laughing... And just bein' plain "borable"!!
The Delightful Duo! I have no idea what Sam was doing at this point to make them laugh... ah, there's no tellin'!!
We love this one!!
Again, I'm not sure what Sam was doing...
but I love the thoughtful look on his face!

{sweet baby shoes}
Jennifer is so easy to take pictures of!
And she is loads of fun too! :-)

"Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a
warrior are sons born in one's youth.
Blessed is the man whose
quiver is full of them."
Psalms 127:3-5

Buttercup's first photo-shoot...

Yesterday I (along with my trusty, and extremely helpful assistant, Sam) took Buttercup out for a fun photo-shoot... I (as I mentioned earlier) had so many ideas for props, setups, and so on for the puppies... one that I really wanted to do was to use a pair of Matt's old work boots and put Buttercup in one of them while she chewed on the other... well, I found out yesterday that our cute little puppy obviously has a very big appetite because of her big belly she just wouldn't fit in the boot!! Oh well, maybe I'll try Sam's boots later... :-D
So then I took a basket out to the front porch, placed Buttercup in it, and of course, she jumped right back out! Sigh. By this time I was a little frustrated... I sent Isaac to go get Sam with a kitten... thinking if she had a distraction in the basket she might stay... well, I was right and wrong... she stayed, but was tearing up the kitten in the process! Sam grabbed the kitten and Buttercup was glued! Finally! She sat there staring at the kitten for a good 5 minutes, allowing me to snap quite a few pictures! I must say she makes a very good model! :-)

I also had a blast editing these!

I love her face!

Then I grabbed Joseph, washed all the dirt off of him, dressed him up, and headed out to snap these...

This one is my favorite!!
I have a few more of Joseph and Buttercup, but they are gonna take a little more editing... got to try and get rid of the "hot spots"...
