Spring Photoshoot

Last Thursday when Oklahoma was burning down and the winds were up to hurricane like levels I decided it would be a good time for Mandy to take Aidan's spring pictures. It was sooooo unbelievably windy. But Mandy is persistent and although she warned me that the goal with photographing little kids is to get one great shot, as usual she came through with several. The thing I love about the pictures Mandy takes of Aidan is that she manages to capture these really awesome moments. You don't get these at JCPenneys with the fake background and the super posed shots. Those are great for framing sometimes, but these are the pictures that I will look back on 20 years from now and all of the amazing memories of Aidan as a toddler will come flooding back.

This first picture cracked us up because Aidan went right up to that tree and struck a classic Senior portrait lean on tree pose.

PS Mandy can also curl a squirming baby's hair with a curling iron like nobody's business.

If Aidan gets any cuter, I don't know what I am going to do with myself! These pictures turned out AMAZING!!! I agree, Mandy does good work!

Thanks for the advertisement Daria! Aidian is so cute, I love the one where her hands are on her cheeks and she's smiling really big!

She is so beautiful and I LOVE her curly hair. I cannot believe how big she's getting!
