Professional Pictures

Lord have mercy....this was an experience. :) The babies wouldn't smile for the photographer for nuthin'. They were not amused by the toys, babbles, feathers....nothing. lol I had to keep singing "doe a deer....a female dear...." and talking to Luke to make them smile. As you can see in the family picture...they were pretty stone cold. We did get some great shots in the end. I'm thinking next time about asking one of my photographer guys that we used for work, to let me use a white sweep and lighting and take them myself. We'll see. I could have him take the family shot and I know I could get the rights to the photos, (for pete's sake, as Nick would say). I was hugely disappointed by the fact that I asked this place if I could purchase the high resolution images twice, two different phone calls, I had verified it again before scheduling the appointment and I was told yes. When we got there it was a different story. I was told that they don't do that. I know I embarrassed Nick but MAN does that irritate me. Nick was all excited about ordering the prints and I was but I had serious buyers remorse because I didn't get what I was promised. I wanted to use the images to design and print my own cards. So.........this is why I had my own photo shoot the next day © copyrighted images by MOM. sigh........I do get fired up about this sort of thing. I guess I need to start printing my digital pictures so we will "have" them other than online. I'm so concentrated on taking them, that I never print them. I guess I'll have to try snapfish out. :) Maybe after Christmas.

Hi Robin. You have a beautiful family. Brings back many memories. You left a comment on my daughter's blog (Twin4God). She was very excited that you did - she loves looking at "twin" pictures! She said you asked for "advice" :) and I told her to tell you to e-mail me if you like! I don't know how much advice I have. They were my first babies, like you, and I was just getting through the day! :) They were so much fun, then and now - though. We had a blast. Feel free to e-mail me or check out my blog. My e-mail is (just put your name or something about the twins in the subject line the first time you e-mail so I don't delete it!) My blog site is

Hope to hear from you soon.

Hey Robin Just wait until they are mobile-I have learned to wear sneakers and my hair pulled back, when I take Drew....I am soaked with sweat by the time I leave the studio!
