Cousin Portraits

I'm working on a post about Christmas, but first, here are some portraits we had done at JCP while we were in San Antonio. The little cutie boy is my 18-month-old nephew, C. We tried to get pictures of the two of them together, but, as you can imagine, doing so is difficult! This is the best photo taken during the whole session: Isn't he adorable?!

Here are a series of shots of Evie and C together, none of which are that great:

Here we were telling him to hold her hand:

Something quite interesting was apparently happening off to the right:

And in this one C was smiling at me instead of the camera:

Awwwww...but not worth ordering:

Creepy, no? --- "Give me candy or I will crush this baby's skull!" We were telling him to put his hands on her shoulders or on the back of the chair, I think:
A smile! And somehow her face/head looks completely square:

I love this one, but C's mom and my mom don't like it because you can't see C very well:


  1. Very cute pictures! San Antonio is one of my favorite cities by the way and I hope to take my husband there some day.

  2. Good pictures! It's hard to get nice looking ones of tiny ones. Keep trying and they will get better every year. Hopefully! (Love the kissing one!)

  3. Aw, so cute! My favorite is the kissing one, too sweet!

  4. Hey there, I am able to comment now!

    The photos are precious (love Evie's shirt) and it's so cool you got to meet Colt and his parents!

    Happy New Year,

  5. Evie and C are both precious in these photos! We can never get good portraits of our children so we just pick the least silly one.

  6. The last picture is pretty darn cute! We tried to do the cousins portrait sitting (also at JCP)in October when Andrew was 3 months old with pretty much the same results. I guess we need to revisit at a later date . . .

  7. Those pics are adorable. I really like the one where C is kissing baby Evie. So sweet.

    Thanks for the comment on my quilting post. I'll be sure to use you as a resource when I inevitably get stuck at some point.

    By the way, I, too, am an English teacher...


  8. Also, I would like to ask you some questions about your recent adoption process. Would you email me at please?

  9. I love the square head one, and wouldn't have noticed the square head if you hadn't pointed it out. :) She is sooooooo adorable. She has already changed so much. Love to see your family so happy and growing!!! Blessings on your New Year!

  10. The pictures are so adorable! Thanks for sharing them.

    And thanks for your comment on my blog. It makes me feel better knowing that I am not the only one who is such a "spaz" about my daughter! (I'm also obsessive about car safety now!!!) I'm glad to hear that the paranoia goes away somewhat... thanks!


I love comments! If you ask a question, I'll probably reply in the comment thread, and I try to visit the blogs of everyone who comments.
