Well, at least both of them are so we match, right?valentines day twin photo shootI posted a few of these pics on my Instagram account a couple of days ago and someone commented that those photos with the huge wax lips are “so weird”, while I agree to a point (giant wax lips ALWAYS look weird), I do have to say I never even thought about it, considering why I had them in the photos in the first place. I’m not one of those moms with baby books that have a whole bunch of memories and dates written down, that’s just not how I am. Instead I take pictures of every little thing they do, thousands in fact. I set up photo shoots that incorporate things they are into at that time, I follow them around and casually snap photos while they play, I lean over them and snap a photo (or 10) while they sleep…you get the idea. So after buying these giant lips on a whim because I thought they were hilarious, Stormy and Ev’s got so excited about them and have been running around the house with them in their mouths non-stop. Seeing how much they loved them and how funny it looked, I just had to add them into these photos, and it was only fitting with it being Valentine’s Day too! Now I will always remember this time and how silly they were with those things. Now lets just hope these photos don’t end up on that awkward family photos list 😉

I love the idea of just putting up a backdrop and filling it with whatever your children are into at that moment and letting them play, it really makes for some great photos that are incredibly meaningful to you. I took these a couple months ago during a time when their latest obsession was olives, they just couldn’t get enough of them! They loved putting them on their fingers and eating them off, just like we all did when we were kids, something I had forgotten about as an adult. Though they quickly outgrew that stage and now it’s on to pickles…my son would seriously eat 2 jars if I let him. The way he gets into the fridge repeatedly saying “ickles? ickles?” is just too cute. I’m glad I was able to capture this time period while it lasted <3
