family pictures!

I love taking newborn pictures but I found out pretty quickly that it is nearly impossible to be mom and photographer with two newborns.  As mom you're trying to hold them in the right pose and worry about them falling off the bed.  As photographer you're trying to get your settings right on your camera and work with the lighting.  And you know that the mom is making sure her baby isn't going to fall so you don't have to worry about that part.  Well, the mom role kept winning.  Thankfully.  Because if photographer role won, the boys would have probably fallen off the bed.  

So, after attempting it a few times, I admitted defeat and asked my brother's girlfriend, Courtney, to come take pictures.  

Annnnd, I'm so glad I did.  

Here are a few of the results:
