Portraits - Take 2

About 10 days ago we went to get Three Year old portraits done for Katie Starr and we also wanted to get a couple of good shots of the Dynamic Duo to submit to the FCC Indiana Calendar. Last year Katie made it in and I am hoping to see them both in it this year as well.

Well, when we went last week the place that we originally planned to go was not open and we went to our second choice which turned out to be a BAD choice as after the pictures were taken the computer that held them had a fatal error (gosh, I hate fatal errors)and corrupted the pictures. I was crestfallen as it was a minor miracle that we got through the session with a couple of good shots and our sanity intact.

Today was Take 2 and we went to the place that I had wanted to go all along. The experience was as good as it could possibly be with the the kiddos. Katie was in rare (not good) form and was about as misbehaved as I have ever seen her and Ethan was was pretty good. All in all, it was quite trying. The end result though was wonderful and they gave me a CD ROM with all 110 shots that were taken. Here are a few of the proofs including some that ended up on the cutting room floor but were too cute not to share. We will submit the photo of them with the Ji Ji and Di Di (Big Sister and Little Brother) with the American Flag backdrop for the calendar, which by the way benefits the orphans in China.

Enjoy!

Lori,

Hi Lori!
Great pictures! Can you believe it has almost been two years since we traveled to China together? The pictures are so cute! I don't envy your experiences though trying to get them to cooperate. The threes are giving me a run for my money! I'm thinking 3 is the new 2. Katie looks so adorable and so much like you it isn't even funny! It would be difficult to pick a favorite. Love to all of you!

Oh my! The Dynamic Duo have done it again. They have just managed to steal my breath away. I can't imagine even considering choosing a favorite.

BTW, where did you go for these pics? I'm looking to having some professional shots of Erin.

Just looking at your photos makes me tired. But seriously, Ethan looks like he has flourished since being home. And Katie looks like a beautiful counterpart. Best wishes to you all.
