Happy Due Date Pictures!


Yesterday the twins became official people...we finally reached their due date! So to celebrate the grand occasion, we went to Babies R Us for some professional photos...NUDIES!



I would not recommend going to Babies R Us for this, and I knew that going in. But we had to go there anyway to pick up a pack-n-play for Gram's house, so I figured I might as well. I think the pictures turned out cute, but the "photographer" couldn't understand why (and was frustrated by the fact that) they couldn't hold their heads up, and they kept crying. Um...hello? 6 weeks old here! Oh yeah...and they wouldn't look at the camera. I finally convinced her that I didn't care about that, I just wanted to capture them as they are right now. It also didn't help that they only do 6 standard poses. Please, when photographing babies, you HAVE to be able to be more flexible than THAT! But like I said, I expected this going in. So all in all I am happy with the outcome. And one of their standard poses was really the only pose I set out to get. It's the one of both of them. They had a picture (kinda) like this at Riverside in the Maternal Health office. So cute!

But we also got one shot of each of them. A bit contrived, but cute. And don't mind Charlie's eyes, he can't quite focus yet! :)


Happy Due Date my Lovies!

Hey Abby, Eli, C & O, It's Cori. Abby recently you asked who had been reading your blog and I'm just getting around to letting you know that we do. (I'm very behind the times and did not have an account...so now I do.) We love it. The photos are great, as well as your writings. We love you guys!

I've been taking some classes and have a great camera if you would like to try again. These are great, but maybe I can get you 3-400 poses instead of 6.

The Bowmans said...

Haha! That would be great actually. I'd love that Trish. Thank you for offering.
