So, I had this awesome idea that I was going to take the girls pictures for their birthday. My mom bought them matching birthday outfits months ago and I wanted to take their pictures near the ponds/lakes in our neighborhood. In my head the pictures were going to be great - the girls were going to smile and laugh and look so natural. In reality, we were rushed because it was hot and Meredith was a little cranky. Despite Meredith's crankiness, she had better photos than Mackenzie because she was truly smiling naturally, while Mackenzie had her posed smile most of the time. Out of 84 pictures, I found 5 that are cute and somewhat resemble the images I had in my head.
First up, Mackenzie:
Kind of a natural smile:
She might be standing a little too straight - normally her belly doesn't stick out that much! ;)
Close up...so cute. She had it easy, she doesn't have hair that blows in the wind and she doesn't know how to not smile naturally.
I'm hoping I can take some more pictures at their party, when they'll wear their outfits again, but for now these are pretty cute.
