Marking the Occasion

Alex is almost 2 1/2 years old, and that means...picture time!

A trip to Sears Thursday netted us the following:

Idle Chatter:
Cute! How hard was it to get him to pose?
Compared to the last three times we had him in for pictures, it was a breeze!

His 1, 1 1/2, and 2 pictures? He cried and cried. It was heartbreaking for me, because all he wanted was Mommy to hold him...but Mommy was paying for portraits, and darn it all...we'd get them!

This time, I spent the day warming him up "when Daddy comes home, we're going to get your picture taken". He was really excited, and in the car, kept asking if the pictures were ready...

We got there, had a few minutes wait time while I selected backgrounds (not much to choose from) and the girl got things set up.
She came out to bring us in, and Alex, when asked if he was ready to have his picture taken, responded thusly "no, not any more".

The girl doing the pictures was great; she finally convinced him to come in by telling him she was lonely and she needed him to come play with her.

He was still a bit contrary during the shoot, but all in all, it worked out!

I adore the khaki pictures! :)
Thank you, Jen!
