Now that Gustin is one year old, it was time to get his portraits done again. I have to say, I really dislike taking my kids to a portrait studio to get their pictures done. It's so much work to get the all dressed up and trying to time it so we arrive there after a good nap and with a full belly so that the baby is not grumpy. And, my kids are always scared of those places. They don't like the strangers, the bright lights or being taken out of Mommy's arms and placed on a table covered in some kind of furry, carpet thing.
So, this time I decided to do something different. I asked my brother to come over and take the pictures with his fancy shmancy new camera. And, it worked great! Gustin played and was happy and gave us lots of smiles and I wasn't stressed at all! I'm getting all my family members to pick which pose they like best and then I'll place orders online for the prints and have them shipped directly to their houses.
Here's the pic I chose for his portrait:
He's playing in the sandbox in our backyard.
And, here a few of my other favorites taken while he played on and around a chair in the living room:
Not bad, huh?
