and you know what? that will never happen. it's waaaay too much work.
what does happen?
throwing a quilt on the deck and gathering children from the sandbox with promises of fruit smoothies when pictures are done. one certain lady had just woken up from a nap. i forgot to redo her pony tales and she wasn't in an especially happy mood.
the most wonderful thing...
i could barley get them to look at the camera because they wouldn't stop hugging each other. quite possibly the best problem i've ever had.
i smile when i see these photos because they aren't the perfect photoshoot...
they are so much better.
the boys were gushing over sister (as they usually do when she wakes up from a nap). i can hear rowie saying "oh mom, shes just so cute today! where did you get this little dress?"
and foster saying, "here sissy, you go in the middle so we can both snuggle you. can i hold you? here you go sissy. sit right here with me. i'll hold you safe."
and on and on.
there are plenty of moments in life when they irritate each other and someone screams because someone hit them with a stray tennis ball. or someone got sand in their eyes because someone wouldn't stop flinging it.
capturing how they really feel about each other is a moment to cherish.
and p.s. she's so gorgeous. i can hardly stand it.
