Attempted Photoshoot

I have come to the conclusion that trying to get my twins to sit still for a "twin" photo shoot is almost impossible. They will sit still and smile for the camera if it is just one of them, but try to put the two of them together - IMPOSSIBLE! Today was beautiful out, but with a slightly cool breeze off the ocean and some cloud coverage. So I thought maybe I would try my hand at getting a few new photos of the girls. The sweet little dresses I put on them for the photos were ones we got at Christmas time for them (I could not resist them) and they have only really worn them a handful of times and figured they were going to be too small for them before the cooler weather rolls around again.

So here is my feeble attempt at taking photos of my girls. Please note and remember, I am NOT a photographer... Though I love my camera, I really do not know how to use it! There are so many functions on it, and I would love to learn how to be a much better photographer, or one at all, but for now... I want to keep capturing my ever growing girls. One of these days we will get a professional to take some photos for an updated wall photo!

Please forgive me because there are a lot of photos.. There was a run of photos I just had to post!

As a side note, we rarely dress them the same and when we do, we always try to have something unique on each one of them.  It is not hard to pick out which one Ruby is in these photos... Her little red shoes are going to be something I think she will always have!

PS for anyone who does not know (and it took me a while to figure out) you can click on the picture to make it bigger... I know - I was probably the last person in the blogging world to figure that out!

Now Charlotte was more than happy to be in the cute rocking chair (which happened to be my husbands when he was little) but wait until Ruby was the one in the chair!!

Ruby trying to get her to leave the chair alone!

Charlotte deciding she was getting up in the chair regardless if Ruby was still in it!

My girls are so much fun and though they always keep me busy, they always keep me happy!

Charlotte reminds me of Cooper......he won't take no for an answer......if he wants it he will get the red shoes. So cute!!! What kind of camera do you have?? It takes nice pictures......I'm still trying to perfect mine.....

This "photo shoot" is amazing. It's so hard to get the perfect shot when two are in it. I know- Aidan and Adisyn have harldly ever had a good photo together. They're always trying to cover each others eyes or something. Kids are great though. Chaotic but great.

Your girls are super cute, and as a professional photographer, I'll tell you that I think you did a great job trying your hand at taking photos of your kids. Little ones are difficult to photograph, especially 2 together! You really captured some great emotions and told a story with your images. Awesome job!

I found your blog on MBC, following your posts now! :)

Lol, these pics crack me up! Love your perspective, you are so blessed! Thanks for the follow, can't wait to read more :)

Brave woman! I can imagine how hard it was to photograph these two together! I LOVE the dresses.
