I'm not sure if it is because I am related to these two or if it is simply because they are this cute, but when I work on pictures of them I sit at my computer with my coffee and laugh and laugh. There have been close calls of nearly spilling and sometimes I need a kleenex for the tears. It is probably just me because I think they are the silliest, most adorable little naughty things and they never cease to crack me up.
They are such stinkers though. This shoot did not go the way I had it in my head, but then do shoots with toddlers under two ever go as you intend? Probably not. My sister in-law and I accumulated and created this ensemble through garage sales and creating and left over wedding paraphernalia. We tried to bring it all together at the end of the day when the sun was already darkened by the storm rolling in and cantankerous little tots ran the show and knew exactly what we were up to. The sad thing is, they are the sweetest, most affectionate little toddler cousins ever ever! that it could have been very adorable had they been their normal lovey-huggy, kissy-kissy selves. But nope. Not with a camera around.
