Backyardigans 06.20.12

You know you're a mom of preschoolers when you title your blog after a cartoon show! ;-) I love a backyard session -- and I adored these little backyardigans! Really though, a backyard session makes it especially easy on the kids, especially when one of them is only 3 months old. I'll be photographing this family again when Carter is 6, 9, and 12 months and I am really excited to capture his first year. Here are a few favorites of him along with big sister Hayes and his parents, Jill and Matt. Enjoy!

Meet 2-year old Hayes. Dollbaby!


And so is little Carter. Just precious!


A backyard session goes really well when you have a charming white garden shed in your yard. How convenient!


Hayes loved picking flowers for Mommy.


And posing. Love.


We made sure to get some pictures with Daddy before he had to leave for work. We got both portraits...


And sweet candids.


Carter loved going up in the air.


He was all giggles.


So of course Hayes got a turn too.


And we turned it into a fun family shot.


I could photograph that pretty little face all day!


You think she was having any fun?!


Carter lasted 2 hours without a nap, but he was definitely getting sleepy...


Could he be any cuter!?! Love it!


Still hoping to get a few more smiles...we resorted to the old standby. Up, up and away.


I love moments like these.


Time frozen with my camera.


This was the very last image we got, and with this I drove away with a big smile.


Jill and Matt, thanks for allowing me to spend a morning with your beautiful family and precious, sweet children! Hope you love the little preview as much as I do. Hugs! ~Kristine
