Austin -- 9 month portraits

Yesterday, on a whim, I surprised the kids with a trip to the local botanical gardens for pictures disguised as fun, nature-exploring, playtime. Though I definitely took plenty of pictures of both Katie and Austin, I went with the expectation of getting a few good 9 month portraits for Austin. We had lots of fun exploring...we even found a huge frog, a not-so-shy turtle, a few "pretty" (Katie's description) spiders, and *gasp* a black racer. We went early, to avoid as much heat as possible, but arrived to find that they had just watered everything! So, needless to say, my kiddos enjoyed some fun in the sun water. In attempts to keep both kids still for 2 seconds at the same time, while keeping bugs, leaves, and dirt out of Austin's mouth keep safe and happy I get any good portraits? Depends on your definition of good...definitely memorable ones, though! Take a look...


I did actually get a picture of the two of them
looking and smiling (somewhat) at the same time!

And I got lots of pictures of Austin's tongue...

So sweet...

my mischieveous boy...

my sweet little girl...

one of my favorites...

my favorite...their sibling love is so sweet to see

And, since I didn't explain it yesterday, that hilarious picture of Austin (and his tongue) posted on my Wordless Wednesday was from this portrait attempt, as well. Hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as we enjoyed playing, exploring, and taking them!
