2 Year Pictures

The Saturday before LL's birthday, we took her to Portrait Innovations to get her 2 year pictures taken.  We have been there tons of times before: for her 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, and 18 months!  I made her appointment for first thing in the morning (9:00) thinking that we had a better chance of her being in a good mood.  Boy was I wrong.  This is just not a good age to try and get pictures of her!  She lost it.  I mean.  Lost.  It.  We were "those people" with the screaming child who would not cooperate.  It got so bad that Matt and I took her outside and walked her to PetsMart to calm her down. 

We came back after about 30 minutes to try again.  It did go a little better but not much.  The girl taking her pictures said that 2 is a really hard age to try and get pictures and that she even skipped her son's 2 year pictures for that reason.  To give you a hint at how horribly it went, usually they take around 80 - 100 pictures; this time they only took 35.  :)  So, without further ado, here they are!

The bad ones....

The better ones....

The best one!

When it came down to it, we really only needed one!  So I guess it wasn't a total bust!
