sometimes, all you need is ONE

Being a mom of 2 is one heck of a ride! It is wonderful, hilarious (at times), exhausting, amazing, miraculous, and did I mention exhausting?!

I had no idea I could love two little beings so much. It’s like a love explosion. My heart is so full!

And there is nothing better than seeing them in a photograph – together – looking halfway normal, maybe even smiling…

Since Paxton is the ripe ol’ age of 3 months – I knew it was time to tackle another shoot. Mark and I pulled every silly face and dancing jig out of our bag of tricks and we feed Piper enough goldfish to make her possibly sprout fins AND we still didn’t get anywhere!

So this is just a friendly reminder that “failed” photoshoots happen to EVERYONE. I find peace in the fact – that even if I just get one – juuuuust ONE – then it will be all worth it.

And if there isn’t even one…

Then there is always tomorrow.

You can see some of my outtakes below. Honestly, some of these really make me laugh – so even though it didn’t go as I had imagined in my head – all was not lost!

I was singing my best rendition of the Star Spangled banner. They were not interested.

It’s a bird, it’s a plane – nope it’s daddy holding up the backdrop!

Paxton, “I’m hungry!” Piper, “Did you say smile? Sure, I can do that!”

Piper, “More fish please!”

Paxton, “Really, mom.”

Out of focus.

Loosing it.

Really loosing it.

Just one more…
