Hallelujah!

That's what I shouted when I downloaded my pictures to my computer and was happily surprised to see this one! What? Avery's actually looking at the camera?! Yep. I usually love candid shots but my camera was beginning to forget the beautiful color of Avery's eyes. We have plenty of shots with her running away or kissing baby Q. Thanks to Daddy's help and holding Quincey we got a picture with both of 0ur little girlies.

Oh Elizabeth, what a wonderfully precious picture of the girls!! LOVE it! :) I have a hard time getting my kiddos to look at the camera too... they call it photographer child's syndrome ;) haha. What's a camera happy mom to do?? .. well I've been known to do some awefully wacky things behind the scenes to crack a smile or force a look at the camera. Have a fabulous weekend!

Seriously, I am not one of those people who think all children are beautiful. I have seen some pretty ugly kids in my lifetime. I'm just sayin'.

Your girls are GORGEOUS!!! Your beautiful girls just radiate!

Your girls are beautiful. :)

Rena said...

It was so hard to capture my daughter facing the camera at that age so instead of calling her name....(which they seem to ignore after a while) I would yell out "Tinkerbell" and she would immediatly look up at me!!

I need to learn how to photoshop! You did a great job! They are too cute!

irene said...

Woooow your two girls look just adorable sitting together. You can see the love between them.

Elizabeth! You don't know me, but I love your articles in the magazine and am totally inspired by your blog. I was just wondering if you could do a tutorial on your cute clips you always have in your girls hair:) I know a LOT is asked of you...but that would be sweet if you did that sometime down the road.
