We coordinated our session with Chris and Rachel so that we could get some cousin shots. These actually didn’t turn out too bad considering that we were trying to pose three kids three and under. A feat that completely exhausted me….

Photo dump

As is usually the case, I don’t have much interesting commentary to share with you all today.  So, after much nagging gentle requesting from various members of my family, I’ll dump some of the pictures I’ve taken over the last few weeks.  Enjoy.

In case your thinking how great the quality of these pictures look (even though Tessa was not very thrilled about the picture taking experience…), I took them while playing around with my friend’s Nikon D90.  It’s pretty much my dream camera.  And in my dreams it shall remain.

Moving on.

Our human children usually hog all this here blog space, so I think our firstborn needs a little attention.  Isn’t she the sweetest?IMG_0467IMG_0472

Tessa’s first big girl bath!

Eli loves lining up all his animals.  And for the record, the striped one in the middle is called a “Beebah”.  It’s his absolute fave.  I need to take him to the zoo soon so he can point out the real life beebah.

I’m not sure why, but I think this is so sweet.  This is one of those images I’ll want burned in my memory in about 20 years.   IMG_0546

Come back tomorrow (or maybe next week…) to see Eli and Tessa’s new portraits!
