eric and mommyWhen my first son was born I had him at the photographers every few months. I would dress him in adorable little bowties and vests and or put him in a cute sports outfit. As he got older he started to protest about all of our studio visits so I had to slow down a bit, but I still have all of the great memories from the early years. I especially love this picture of him and I together when he was three years old.

With the younger kids I had less time and energy for getting professional pictures done every few months, so I tried to make them worthwhile when I did have time. We visited the Sears Portrait Studio to get pictures done of the two boys together, and again when my little girl arrived. Her first professional pictures are some of my favourite photos, although that may have something to do with the adorable little pink outfit.Scan10001
