So don't let anyone ever fool you, you only have about 5 minutes - count them FIVE - to get a picture of a toddler. i thought for a few giggles i would post the out-takes and a few more of my little models. In between shots, chloe and arden rolled down hills and wrestled their baby brother and made general ruckus - and then while i was getting the last shots of the day, we all kept a wary eye on the little lion man who was wandering off across the field. it was a fun day in the afternoon sun.
Not entirely cooperating, He eventually did get away… and ran across the field.
This one of Chloe holding him down with her knees makes me laugh out loud every time i see it. She pinned him - way to go Chloe! Just wait till he's big enough to pin you!!!
Ahhh, the bliss of being a kid. Nothing like a good hill roll. Nothing at all.
And then because they are very obliging children who love their camera toting mama dearly, they let me take a few more with the sun setting behind them. What good sports they are - and they worked it.
My sweet little Arden. He makes my heart melt with love. i am so honored to be his mommy.
I asked Chloe where she learned to stand that way - she said she was born knowing how. Lucky me :) i guess she's the one that taught Arden. i love them so.
