some shoots and stuff

Before I post anything else, I want to again share sweet Abby's site and ask that you pray for this precious little one. The strength of this family is an amazing testimony to God's grace in the most difficult of trials.

On Sat, I had the pleasure to hang with my friend, Chelsea! She agreed to let me photograph her and didn't cancel even though she was sick! She is super cool...and gracious...that way. Here are a few from our afternoon:






And...here is M in the BIG TWO shirt!!!!! Sorry there are so many, but how is a mama to choose?

I certainly couldn't choose! That is for sure!! Your photography is just getting better and better! I look forward to doing my make-up course since I had to drop this time around. Thank you for the prayers friend!

Tami said...

Happy #2 M! Do you feel any older????

Love the '2' shirt....couldn't pick a favorite:-) They're all so good.

Tami said...

Oh, your friend Chelsea has the most beautiful blue eyes!

Ohmygosh! I love them all! The expression on his face in the fourth shot is beyond adorable and I love the shots with his little feet which is totally odd for me since I hate, loathe, despise feet. But I guess baby feet are cool so...ya.

Jon and Em said...

i love all the pics. i can see why you couldn't choose. (moms don't have to anyway.)

Lisa said...

Oh, he looks so joyful and cooperative! He was saving up those smiles to usher in age 2!!

I would not have been able to choose a fave either! :)
Hugs,
Lisa

Hey- was that Matthew cooperating with you for a photo shoot? WOW- maybe two years old will mean PROGRESS!!!

He's a handsome fella! Enjoy two- and don't believe what people tell you about it! Three is no fun, but I LOVE two!!!

Andrea said...

Pictures are great!

Where are you getting the t-shirts with the numbers on them...I love them.
Precious Little Monkey! He looks good in anything.

Your model is beautiful..sick or not. My friends would have TOTALLY
backed out on me.

It's hard to pare down when you've got such a great selection from which to choose. Happy 2nd, big guy!

Rebecca of "China, Baby!" said...

I can see why you had a hard time choosing from those "2" photos. :) They are all so beautiful, and each one captures something a bit different!!

Happy 2nd birthday, Mr. Matthew!!!!
