Siblings At Their Best:)

April 2, 2009

Just Layin Around copy-700
I know I am his Mom and I see him everyday, but when I take his picture and download it to the computer....I look at the screen in disbelief!! How the heck did time move so quickly......he is no longer a little boy following me around wherever I go, he is turning into a handsome young man right before my eyes and truth be told......It scares me half to death.....I am not sure I am ready for the next phase.....

The other night Nick appeased me and let me try out some things with my camera using indoor lighting and reflectors. As you have heard me say before, he typically wants nothing to do with the camera, but this night was different. I think he secretly enjoyed it....we were having a great time, being silly and striking poses.....but our little party got crashed........

No Nicky -700
When Sarah realized that I was taking pictures of Nick, she was a tad jealous.......She obviously does not like sharing the spot light with her brother...lol!! She marched right over to him and said, "MOVE OVER.....Now Mommy is going to take my picture"

I'm Not Budging-700
Nick trying to explain that we were in the middle of something.....and after we were done, she could have a turn. I don't think she is going to budge....do you?

We Can Take Turns-700
"I have an idea....maybe Mom can take pictures of the two of us together....What do you think.....can we do this together"

Giggles-700
Siblings at their best....The room was filled with giggles of laughter as they hammed it up for the camera!!

Bye Bye-700
Still laughing......and a wave bye bye to end the series!!

It has been a long time since I have attempted to photograph the two of them at once......I don't think I have tried since the dreaded Christmas Card photoshoot. I thought these shots were so cute and so candid.....most of what came out of my camera that afternoon was blurry because we were all laughing and clowning around, but I wanted to share them anyway!!

Hope you all have a great weekend....We will be spending ours outdoors....Sarah is going to an Easter egg hunt on Saturday and Nick has his first Soccer game on Sunday!

Your children are absolutely beautiful!

Those pictures really capture the moment...I almost thought I could hear those sweet little giggles coming out of the pictures!! You are really getting good with your camera!

I wish my two would get along like yours do! Great post! : )

sara said...

Oh, impromptu photo shoots are the best!! I love the third one, and YES, Nick is becoming quite the handsome man. Sigh. Don't remind me that it HAS to happen.

Colleen said...

Awwwww, such sweet sibling photos! You really captured some great ones. It is almost impossible to capture my 3 together now! I have not tried since Christmas as well! I'm hoping to be able to get some at Easter.
I love the first one of Nick.....so handsome.

Aspiemom said...

#4 and #5 are my favorites! Isn't it wonderful the relationship they have?

And yes, he is handsome!

I LOVE these of your sweet babies!!! It's fun to pose kids and take their pics, but I think candids are becoming my fav and these definitely do not disappoint! I can see the love. Can't wait to see it in real life soon!!! Only three more weeks! YAY!
Great pics, my friend!

Jboo said...

Great photos!! Your Nick is a handsome lad -- watch out -- the phone is going to be ringing -- if it's not already! He's so sweet with Sarah, isn't he!

Good luck to him at the soccer game and to Sarah at the Easter Egg hunt!

Oh Lisa...the photos are beautiful! OMG - I can't even begin to imagine when Francesca is all grown up...I say to myself everyday..."Stay exactly as you are..." I know it is selfish but I just can't imaginenot seeing her and Annabelle being there every day....

Nick is definitely a handsome young guy. You know how much I love brown eyes!

It sounds like we will both be taking pictures of Easter egg hunts this weekend! Hope you have a great time!

Sherri said...

This post is fabulous! I love it! Sarah is so funny and Nick seems so mature and patient with her.

I'm going to try your pepper recipe hopefully next week. I am always up to trying something different from my boring old meals!

Kayce said...

Great shots Lisa! I love Sarah's smirks in the pictures. Nick is such a great big brother. Enjoy your weekend and being outdoors.

Michelle said...

Adorable, adorable!! Seriously, Lisa, you are in for some serious cell phone bills when Nick hits high school. He is such a handsome young man. The girls will be calling, for sure.

Jennifer said...

CC said...

What wonderful photos! I love sibling pics, but usually my kids cringe at the thought of (ewwwww) touching each other and getting close.

Tisha said...

Lisa,

It looks like your beautiful children are developing a beautiful relationship as brother and sister. I hope you have great weather for your "outdoor" weekend!

Blessings,
Tisha

Keisha said...

wife.mom.nurse said...

They are forever darling!

Gail said...

These are absolutely adorable!!!! Love the last one. Sarah has a beautiful little smile. I know very well how hard it is to get great pics of 2 together. I think candid pics are my favorite and probably the best one's I have of my kids.

Nick is so handsome, I know I've said that several times but I'll say it again.

Have a great weekend!

Hannah said...

Those pictures are absolutely stunning. Beautiful.

Courtney said...

Great photos, you have two beautiful children!

Cindi said...

The photo "next to the last" brought tears - so sweet!

kerri said...

Beautiful shots, I can see the love they share, nice job Lisa...

Ivy said...

HI Lisa,
Where've ya been? I miss you!!!

AWh these are the best pics, simply siblings! Love all Sarah's expressions and Nick seems so mature. My fav's are the one of the two of them giggling of course.

Oh, you are such a good Mommy!

Hugs to you. Have a great weekend! I'm counting the days till Phila.

Liene said...

You're pictures are so fabulous!! I can't wait to start taking photos of Eriks with Emilija. Eriks is almost 5 1/2 and he has grown so much in that time. I feel the same sentiment that I look at his photo in awe how much he's changed in such little time.

Debra said...

What sweet children you have. The photos of the two of them are wonderful.
Thanks for sharing,
Debra

carolinagirl said...

As I've said before, I don't know Nick personally, but one can just tell that he is a total sweetheart! I know he will grow up to be such a kind young man...you can just see it in his eyes! I love the photos of the two of them together.

I know how hard it is to get good ones of siblings tho! :)

Enjoy the sunshine!

Norah said...

Have a great weekend! We are doing an egg hunt too. These pictures are precious!

Lori said...

I love, love, LOVE, the next to last picture of the two of them, what a perfect shot of your beautiful children!!!

Rhonda said...

Okay, you seriously are so talented with that camera...and whatever it is that you do after you take these gorgeous photos....I wish you could teach my hubbie....he's in charge of "all things photo related" around here...Have a great weekend.

3D said...

Jennifer said...

I love the ones of them laughing! So funny that Sarah didn't want Nick getting all the attention. I know you're glad you got these :)

Melanie said...

I think that first photo is amazing!

jiangxigirls said...

Have a great weekend!

Norma said...

Colleen said...

Nick is so handsome!!!! They grow up way too fast : (
I love this post. They are so cute together and the love they have for each other really shines through in this post.

Kerry said...

Oh, Lisa- no these are beautiful wonderfully expressive photos of your two kids together. Love them. The last two are absolutely priceless. Those smiles. Hugs- well at least it was jealousy turned to good!

Debz said...

Ha Ha! That is way cute! I hated the camera when I was a little girl! I have seen so many family photo's with everyone smiling from ear to ear then there I am with a frown that would make you think I just lost my best frien.
The pics turned out just beautiful. You have a true talent there girl.

Jennifer said...

Beautiful pictures of Nick and Sarah! Love the last one of the two of them.

Hope you had a great weekend. I can't believe it is over already!

Jen

Casey said...

Wow! You must be bursting with pride!! He seems like such a lovely young man!!! They look adorable together... I just LOVE those photos!!

And I agree... Sometimes I download photos of Liam and I'm not sure HOW he got to be this old.... where does time go??

Thus why he is a well documented child.... I'm trying to hold on to the moments.

jenbusymom said...

Oh Lisa, I can't get over how stunningly gorgeous they both are and what amazing shots! You are inspiring me to get back in touch with my camera and flickr!
