Mr. Happy Pants!


My friend Joy came and took some pictures of Lance. In a previous post, I mentioned how Lance WOULD NOT SMILE ONE time the whole hour Joy was there. I was pretty bummed, but she does such a fantastic job, that I even LOVE the serious ones!

So, before I post his pictures, I have to preface them with a funny story that happened today. Spence and I were at Costco. Spence was holding Lance and he looked over his shoulder and there was an older woman playing with Lance and he was laughing so hard at her. She said "Wow, he is so outgoing. His personality is so much fun! Is he always like this?!" Spencer was like, "Um, well he is a happy kid, but he usually isn't this excited to see someone he doesn't know!" Ok, well that made me happy. So, he can be outgoing around people he doesn't know that well; I guess the catch 22, is WHEN he WANTS to be.


Here are some of our favorites. Thanks again Joy, you are fantastic!





Which do you like best - B&W or Color?

Lance is the cutest thing ever! I love those pics, what a little stud! I like both the B&W and the color, it is hard to choose. Ander is the same with people, he is either really shy or really outgoing, funny kids!

i LOVE that first b&w one. sometimes "serious" pictures feel so much more honest/intimate/authentic to me.

Kimberly said...

I like the color one, usually I am partial to black and white pictures, but I really like that color one.

SOOOOO cute, Katie! What a handsome little man you have!

Super cute! I'm surprised he doesn't have a perma grin with you and Spence as parents. You two are the happiest, smiliest couple I know. I love it, you see you two and you can't help but smile. You guys are awesome. I usually like black and whit, but I love the color picture, his skin looks perfect and the colors are great!

That is so funny! And I like the COLOR one way more! It is classy! I love the one of Spence holding Lance as well! Pictures are so wonderful! When I get family pictures done I just stare and stare at them for ever. I love pictures!!

Martha said...

He's so cute--how funny that he will not smile unless it's his idea. I laughed really hard at your comment on my blog, that you thought the side rail was a balloon!

They turned out so cute! I love the black and white one. He is so sweet and precious.

shannon said...

Omigosh, what great photos. It's nice that you got some quality pictures of him as a baby--they'll be so fun to look back on. He's a looker alright!

Ames Family said...

He is so cute Katie! It will be fun for our little ones to play next time you are in town. Your mom mentioned you were coming for Lances b-day, let's get together! I love black and white, but I really think that nothing beats color for babies!

Mike and Joy said...

You are so welcome! It's hard because I like the BW one, it portrays a 'mood', but the color one shows off his amazing baby blues....

Mauss Memories said...

Those pictures are adorable! What a cute guy you have.

Thanks for being so faithful at checking my blog. I've been so bad at it. Joy did a great job. I like the b & w especially if you are going to frame it.
