When the twins were 2 and a half I did a tutu mini session event at a local shop. At the end of the shooting time I took a few images of Blake and Maddie in front of the store with the white columns and brick buildings in the background. Those images ended up being so fun and become 16×24 prints on our wall. Our temporary town house between homes is right by that shop.
Here are my cuties back at the end of September 2010…
Since we are so close to the shopping center, it got me thinking how wonderful it would be to have a shot of Landon to match the twins. Life, however, has gotten in the way. It has rained or been cold each and every time I wanted to take him over there. Warm weather was important so they could match in feel. We hit Thanksgiving and I thought all was lost!
Then last week we were hit with an 80 degree day! No joke. The day before was a 70 degree day. Ummm, I already packed up the kids summer clothes for our move. Oooops. It turns out one shirt of Landon’s was out which is the same or close to it as the one Blake is wearing. Too bad it got trashed with food stains. lol
I just decided it was going to happen and not become a missed opportunity so I grabbed the only short sleeve shirt of Blake’s not packed, put it on Landon and headed over there. Maybe looking at the images for a minute first could have helped me take some with the same angles, but it is matched enough for me. They have been packed up since May.
Landon gave me a wonderfully fun 6 minutes of cooperation. I think he was thoroughly enjoying the one on one time with me.
Enjoy some of my favorites! Feel free to give me your vote on which image to hang with the twins. There are numbers above each image. Keep in mind that most of them are being shared for entertainment value and not what we are debating putting on the wall. Also, I will crop in appropriately on the final image.
