A few months ago I had the opportunity to take newborn photos of my sister's darling twins.  They did really great individually but we had a little trouble getting them in a shot together.  We got it eventually, but it took some doing. This was one failed attempt:

My nephews :)

Don't they look ticked? We all thought it was funny so I snapped a picture. It turned out to be one of my sister's favorites from the shoot.

Well, this week at, she is doing a "brothers" themed photography contest. I couldn't resist entering this photo. And GUESS WHAT!!! It has been chosen for group 3! I was so excited to see it on there this morning!

She usually chooses about 6 groups, then narrows it down to finalists, and then to a winner. So wish me luck! And go check out the other pictures -- there are some really good ones. My personal favorite is the boys covered in mud. Maybe I'll have to do a mud sitting this summer :)

A Very Merry Un-birthday

So here's the story: Around the time of this baby's first birthday, I dreamed up this photo shoot. I was so excited about it. I purchased everything. I baked, I decorated. And then I got busy. All of the treats went into the freezer, for what I thought would be a week or so.

Then Baby got a cold; then I got a cold; then this; then that, etc., etc. Life happened. And, as so often happens, my own kid's photo shoot took a back seat to everything else that needed to be done. So here we are six months later celebrating a very merry un-birthday. No one seemed to mind having a party just for fun :)

Sweet baby K

It's going on midnight and I'm loving these pictures as I edit them. I've got to get to bed but I wanted to post a few more before I shut everything down. This is such a great family :)
