Maya & Jenelle

This weekend was Maya’s 2nd birthday. Didn't her mom do such a good job making this Minnie Mouse cake?!

You’ve seen Maya at 6 months, 12 months, 18 months and now here she is for her 2 year portrait session.

You’ve also watched Maya’s little sister, Jenelle, get SO big from 1 week, 3 months, 6 months and now 9 months. These girls are near and dear to me as I’ve been friends with their mom since we were three years old!

We started our portrait session at the park...

Then took a walk around the block. Mia happily tagged along while mommy "worked".

Maya and Jenelle sure made me work for some smiles! At an hour and a half, it was definitely the longest walk around the block Andrea and I have ever had. But we’ll just call it “quality” time together with our girls. And it worked out just fine!

Thank goodness for beautiful Spring weather!

After lunch it was time to head inside...

Don't you love Maya's big beautiful eyes...

Then it was on to baby sister Jenelle, who just like last time, loved my bedroom!

At six months old, Jenelle was just barely sitting up on her own. Now at nine months, she's starting to stand!

I love her curls and all that baby fat!

While Maya and Jenelle played with Mia's toys on one side of the room...

...Mia curled up with Daisy and a blankie to pass out on the other side!

Thanks for a tiring fun afternoon! Love hanging out with you girls!

I adore the photograph of the littel girls holding hands and walking away from the camera. In fact I really like all your shots, what a beautiful photojournal of your day.
