So I often wish that I were a photographer. Sometimes I pretend to be one. I scan the house for good light, carefully position one or both of the girls in said light and attempt to take non-blurred beautiful pics with my expensive camera that I don't really know how to use. Every once in awhile I get a couple that make me think I could actually be a photographer. I show them to Husband, who mumbles his approval. I post them on my facebook page or put them on snapfish or maybe even post them here. I've gotten a few comments on my facebook gushing about how great one or two of my pictures are. And then we had our friend who shot our wedding over to take portraits of the girls. Um, yeah. I can assure you all here and now--I am not, I repeat, not a photographer. Bryan Mitchell, however, is an amazing photographer. Here are a few of the pics he shot of the girls last week at our house. They put mine to shame.

Half-Year Girl

Man 6 months goes fast! Maya celebrated her half birthday a few weeks ago and started sitting unpropped, got her first tooth promptly followed by her second tooth, started sleeping on her tummy, had her first bites of food (which she hated), started saying mama and dada, and got up on all fours. Its been quite the month!
