Mother's Day Photo Shoot

Every year around Mother's Day I take the girls out somewhere and take pictures of them. 
This year I wanted to go to this place about 30 minutes from our house. I did the pictures there about two years ago right after we moved to Utah and it was perfect. 
But then we got there and there were a bunch of people setting up a wedding. 
Darn. 
We drove around a few more places but nothing was working out. 
Finally I remembered seeing people take pictures on some train tracks by a park near our house. 
So we went there. 
I took pictures on the tracks and then we went to a bridge at the park and walked around the park itself. 
I got some pictures I really love. But of course I also took a bunch of funny ones. 
I'm posting those first. 

Sometimes it is hard to get two girls to stand still at the same time. 


When hugging poses turn to squeezing poses...



These girls are silly.



I actually liked this one but it was pretty dark.


Let's pick flowers instead of taking pictures!


The cutest cry that ever was. 


Yeah... the pose I was going for here did NOT work. 




 And then here are my favorites:












It was a long process but fun results!

Those are beautiful! Even the funny ones--they show their personalities and the reality of life well. What a nice tradition to do for Mother's Day.

Those are super cute! I love the railroad tracks as a backdrop. The goofy ones show the reality of trying to get pictures of kids. It is a lot more work than the final perfect photo shows.

Donna- thanks! I like the "bloopers" too especially the one with Maddy crying because that is so her. She is so dramatic and emotional.
Julie- Thanks. I really like the tracks too. I might have to go back there for some fall pictures as I imagine the trees will be really pretty in fall colors.
Mom- Thanks!
