Two Little Cuties- J & J

I had a sibling shoot this past weekend, my first at TWO little boys. They were adorable and I just wanted to take home the youngest boy. I do have to say, having a girl, I never knew how much boys are different than girls and the oldest proved me that! He was so in love with these snails that he found, that the frogs, snails and puppy dog tails saying came to my mind. They really made me work for the money :) I had a wonderful time. Here are some that I just love of them.
How cute is he?? Little J is 18 months old and was so full of cutiness! I love this age and miss it so much!
Older J was so full of crazy! He is 4 and was hating the camera until he found those beautiful snails that I was telling you about!

Birthday Girl

I can't beleive my baby is turning three! I guess she really isn't a baby anymore, I just like to think she still is. We went out a few days before her birthday to get some pictures in the TuTu that I made. Here are a few of my favorites.....

I told Kylie to show me how many she was (on her fingers) and this is what I got... I'll take it!!
