Birthday Portraits!



Today the boys had farm camp so Mae and I headed to the mall for her 1yr photos. I am such a sucker for things like this....I have a portrait of each boy (6m, 9m, 1 etc) and have started hanging them on the wall as you go up the stairway. I love 'commemerating' each year. And because they are 18 (read, 6 months) apart, we have a photo of them together every 6 months. The changes in just 6 months are amazing. Next month we will return for Sam's 3 yr pic, as well as their first official portrait together!! Today was fun and the photographer was amazing...so sweet and gentle with her. Sometimes they are a little too loud. I want to ask for 'Dan' when we return...he was loud but so funny with the boys he was working with, having them in pirate hats and squealing at them...he's a winner. Anyway, here are the 2 official portraits that I always do: the close up and the official portrait, as well as Mae's full Chinese outfit. I can't believe she will be ONE on Saturday!!

OMG Ellen ... The pics are amazing, and yet I'm betting she is even more beautiful in person!

I LOVE the pictures. I cannot wait to do Shayna's 1st set of pictures for her birthday. And I cannot believe Mae is one. I remember your referral and that was over 5 months ago. It is funny how time flies when you are no longer waiting.
