This time around I was determined not to wait so long!!! We also needed a Christmas card photo so that was good motivation! A.J. took these in December, after the mad rush of fall season. So we got it in when Colten was just a few weeks past 1!! He was standing and walking, which made for some adorable photos, and also lots of chasing haha.
It is so much fun to slow down and be on the other end of the lens!! All year long I see such cute families in the best outfits. They all turn out to have lots of adorable pictures. I end up feeling a lot of pressure. I know though, I can’t be stressed about pictures. If I’m stressed then the boys will sense it and it just doesn’t go well! I went in with the mindset that I trusted A.J. to capture my boys in the exact stage they are in. The good and bad and everything in between!
These pictures capture our boys so well. Colten’s snuggles and thumb sucking. Cason’s silliness and infectious smile. They also capture my husband, their superhero dada, the guy who never keeps us on time, but always keeps us laughing and playing!
Fair warning– be prepared to melt over how adorable my boys are. I know I’m biased but geeeeesssss!!! It’s also 100% okay to swoon over Colten’s eyes, most people do haha!
