Behind the Scenes

Thanks for all of your sweet comments on our family photos!  I can't wait to have some prints made and add a few to several rooms in the house!  And while I think they all turned out nearly perfect, it wasn't without some effort....  Generally Liam is a pretty good listener when we do family photos and takes direction well; however, a little extra motivation is sometimes needed.  Chocolate chips are my go to!  The mini ones!  Such a small amount of chocolate that keeps him happy as can be!  And Finn is an easy, mellow baby, but he also loves to nurse!  And he's not too pleased when those nursing session are cut short!  

So to keep things real, here is a peek at the behind-the-scenes of our little shoot...  We were trying to get the boys lying next to each other on our bed with their heads close together.  Finn was not happy about being laid down, but would sometimes give us a few seconds on the bed.  By the time Liam was in place, Finn was crying.  So to keep both boys happy and in place, I crouched over Finn to feed him, while Conor entertained Liam by dropping chocolate chips into his mouth!  For the win!

  2. Haha this is hilarious! The more kids you add the harder it gets! When the cousins are here visiting, if they are all looking at the camera it's a win, forget smiling ;)
