sisters in the park

Late last month, I decided to take my girls to the Arboretum for some portraits. Just getting something on my calendar to do that is an amazing feat. The cards were lining up perfectly.

The weather was warm and beautiful. The trees were still blooming in beautiful shades of pink, dark pink, purple, and white. The girls were excited to put on their dresses and run around. And I was feeling ok, now that I was in my second trimester.

I took them to the big tree that I love and Estella decided to become a model. Literally. I have no idea how she learned how to pose (through osmosis perhaps?). Click, click. Got it. Now it was Adi’s turn. Yeah, right. Two and a half is funny age of control. They want to do their own thing. And will tell you what they want or don’t want. Loudly.

Well, I heard a loud “STOP!” every time my camera was pointed in her direction. And she didn’t want to move or walk. Finally, I just gave her a stick to get her mind off scowling. Even Estella tried to distract her by hugs and playing. And that’s how this picture happened. Funny, Adi forgot to shout or scowl for second or two.
