G & A – “Typical” Two’s

By | 2010-12-21T14:00:02+00:00 March 5th, 2010|Kids|1 Comment

G & A are new two year olds, and boy are they ever! So often people describe the time when our children are two as the, “Terrible Two’s,” but they really aren’t that terrible. G & A were, instead, “Typical Two’s.” Two year olds, I always say, are THE most difficult age to photograph. Not because they are terrible, but because they are very independent, very curious, and their favorite word is, “No.” So trying to get their attention when they’re busy inspecting everything else around them is not easy. “G” wanted to just keep going off and exploring, even though we were in a greenbelt that he’d visited many times. The greenbelt was beautiful, and there were some large shade trees. But do you think “G” or “A” had any interest in just hanging out in the shade and playing with me? That’s OK. These two have the most stunning eyes, and I did have some luck capturing some precious expressions. We spent time both indoors and outdoors, and I loved spending time with them, as well as their wonderful parents. Thanks for inviting me to play!

Babies M & M with Little Miss A

I had the opportunity to capture images of these twin 10 month olds who are are at the pulling up and cruisin’ stage in their life.  They came along with big sis, “A” who was bright and energetic and happy to pose.    They all had bright beautiful eyes, and such happy smiles.  It was a little cold that morning, but we made it work!

P, K, A, and T

We took this set of 2 year old boy/girl twins over to the wooded area of O’Neill park along the border of Rancho Santa Margarita.  Their mom called this part of the park their “backyard” because, let’s face it, very few of us in RSM have very big back yards and this would be the closest thing to it if you lived near by.  They were such adorable kids, and I enjoyed spending time with them.  We walked, and played, and they showed me flowers and grasses, and logs they could climb on and all sorts of fun stuff.  Big sister “A” came a long to help play with the kids, and we captured some nice images of her too.  She is just beautiful, which is no surprise when you see the rest of the family!  I’ve lived in RSM for 10 years, and have never been inside the gates except through the main entrance for camping.  It really is quite lovely and peaceful, and I think you should check it out!  Thanks Mrs. D for sharing it with us!
