I took some photos recently of three cousins. Boy are they cute and adventurous but trying to get a 7 month old and a 2 & 4 year old all to sit pretty and look at me and smile at the same time wasn't in this deck of cards.
But that's ok with me and that why I love my zoom lens! I let them run and play and I could be far enough away where they didn't know I was taking pictures of them and they could be themselves. Isn't that what it's all about capturing those moments where your kids are being your kids rather than some stuffy forced photos.
We were in beautiful Newburyport, MA. The kids had a great time watching the boats in the harbor and strolling through the old cobblestone roads!
Showing off his super powers and launching himself off a rock wall...gotta love boys!
I LOVE toothless smiles (on babies that is!) and aren't her eyes just to beautiful!
In the midst of twirling around, I think she was onto me!
I love this one. What a sweet big brother holding his sisters hand...right before he tries to leap off the rock wall with her! (Good thing mom was there to jump in!)
Taking a time out, just people watching...
I love this one because it looks posed but it wasn't!
Monkey in a tree!
Like I said it was tough trying to get them all to look at me at the same time. I love this because it captures the "behind the scenes" and the goofiness!
At the end of our session we hit up the candy store for some sweet treats...we then realized we should have gone there first!
