Family Photos

With the Holidays approaching, & Lincoln's 2nd birthday in just a few weeks, we decided it was time to get some family photos.  We haven't done any since Lincoln's one year pictures, so I thought it was well over due.

Unfortunately, my sweet boy woke up in the middle of the night with a fever.  Lincoln NEVER gets fevers.  Like ever.  I've been very lucky in that department, so needless to say I was a little freaked out.  When he woke up in the morning, he was acting like himself, & he only had a small temp, so we decided to attempt the photos. 

Well, we only got four decent shots.  Yeah.  I was pretty disappointed. Especially, because we have used this photographer since Lincoln was a wee little babe, and she has always been able to capture so many photos of him.  He wasn't miserable in the least. He just didn't want to sit still.  I know that's normal because he is a very active toddler and all, but I was still a bit disappointed. 

The shots we did get did come out good. 

This was seriously the one and only one of him by himself.  It was a struggle to get him to sit with Jared and me, but getting him alone was next to impossible. 
 And here's my favorite.  I think it captures how the shoot exactly went.  A squirmy, silly little boy.
I think next time it might be best to have a photographer come to our house.  Lincoln will probably feel more comfortable, and hopefully we'll have more success. 

It was an adventure, to say the least!  At least I now have some photos to make our Christmas cards...which, I am probably way too excited about!  OH, & I have a 2nd birthday to plan....I should probably get on that, eh?


  1. They are adorable. It was impossible to get family photos at Carter's 2 year photo session. He did not want to take family pictures at all. Maybe next year =)

  2. I love your family pics. We have to take some in a week and I'm a little nervous about my 23 month old being cooperative!!!
