Posing with Pixel Clicks | Mommy and Me Monday | 205th ed

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids.  Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information. Need another reason to participate in Mommy and Me Monday? Read my post about why I blog with words from a friends’ husband.

Mommy and Me Monday recently has been quick shots snapped by my iPhone. Often the front camera. With terrible lighting and grainy darkness. And those are perfectly acceptable pictures, because they capture me, the mommy, with my kiddos. So when they look back, they see me in the pictures, too! I know blogging is all about being vain, but really, I do most of this for them. 

But, every once and a while, you need to call in the big guns. The person that knows what they are doing with their camera and their lights and photoshop. This time, that person was Amy from Pixel Clicks. Amy, also of Marvelous Mommy, and I have been blogging friends for a while now. Before B was born, I asked her to come and take newborn pictures. She happily said yes! And, I happily breathed a sigh of relief knowing I wouldn’t have to try to do birth announcement pictures.

While we were trying to get B to fall asleep (she never did, by the way), I was doing some sushing, and Amy was sneaky and got a picture. I hadn’t quite worked my magic. These are the kinds of shots that I would never thing to have, but I’m glad I do. Because who has a picture of them trying to calm their newborn?

And, then there were SIX! Six who are hard to capture. But you know what? Why not have a picture that really captures all of you? (And, how is it with all of  these good looking ladies, Mr. Serious is the one that looks the best?) Gosh they are goobers!

This one…squinty eye and pursed little lips and that bright red hair? Already wrapped around her little finger.

These four girls? Pretty sure like 90% of the time we are both wrapped around their fingers…or are they wrapped around ours?

I’m so very grateful to Amy for coming over to our house and capturing these pictures of us and our girls! She was so patient with our craziness and fun to have here. Check out Pixel Clicks Photography on Facebook, too!

*Amy came and took pictures for us. We are so very appreciative!

**There really is only one requirement here, a picture of you and your baby or babies; your children, your “baby” (ie significant other) or even your fur babies. If your picture doesn’t feature you (meaning you must be in the picture), I will have to delete your link. It’s not fair to the others that follow the rules.**

I try to make sure and visit all of you and leave some comment love.  Please spread the love!  And, I never mind the comments, either:)

    Lizzie’s one month pictures, I have on of me trying to shush her. We went to Target and my MIL was with us and impatient or unsupportive, but either way wouldn’t let me know nurse, which is what Lizzie really wanted. We did get some okay shots. But afterwards my MIL said, well if you would have brought a bottle she would have been better. Hopefully she will be better this time around since my SIL nursed her first & she seemed more supportive with her.
