In case you were confused, yes, there are two of them. Most days, I can tell them apart. But on days like this, when they both play the evil twin and wear similar clothes, I get confused and don't actually know which one I'm talking to. 

I just don't worry about it anymore. They win. I gave up. I know whichever one I'm talking to, the message will get to the other, so I don't worry about it anymore.

If you think you can do better with telling them apart, visit them at their cafe on Georgia Avenue in DC and give it a try. Their place is called "Heat Da Spot" and I promise you won't be disappointed. That crazy guy in the middle is one great cook.

If you'd like to just relax and enjoy your family and leave the photography to someone else so you can be in the pictures, I can help. Just remember, you don't have forever to get photos like the one above.

Your Little People Won’t Be Little Forever.

If you want images of you making your baby girl’s face light up with her adorable smile with only two bottom teeth, or if you like to toss your little people up in the air and catch them, you have a small window of time for capturing those special moments.
