We went to see my favorite photographer today. I had high hopes for adorable pictures of my little people. Cory did pictures of the kids two summers ago  and then our family pictures last fall. I love his work and have always been so happy with the pictures he's taken for us. 

We had a little bit of a challenge today, though. A cute little blonde pig-tailed challenge. Pictures are always easier when your child will actually look at the photographer. At least look at him without crying. 

But I think he might have managed to get a few sweet ones. We'll see.

But I know there aren't any with that sweet Gretchie smile I love to see. The little scrunched up nose and squinty eyes.

So I figured I would snap a few pictures when we got back to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

I had to document this serious cuteness.

But, what do you know? She wouldn't really look at me, either. No tears... but no big smiles, either.

Stubborn little monkey...

Anxiously awaiting the professional ones!

p.s. Thanks so much for the adorable outfit, Meagan! You seriously have the sweetest hand-me-downs ever! =)

I get SO VERY DISAPPOINTED about the professional pics too when I KNOW there smiles and I don't get them! I know they are good pics but why can't they do their BIG smiles for them too?? Cute outfit!! She is just precious:)

oh...dear...sweet Gretchen! Orange is perfect for you! Great snapshots, Amy. Makes me wish I had more pics of miss magda in that sweater!

What a sweetie! I LOVE the outfit and funny thing I think the last couple outfits of hers I have commented on have been Meg's hand me downs- gotta love it! Meg has great taste:) It is so disappointing when you know there are big smiles in that little person and they don't show the photographer. Can't wait to see Corys- these are great though!
