two on tuesdays: dexter’s annual photo shoot

Two on Tuesdays

Two On Tuesdays is a mini-series with the fabulous Miss Sarah of Girls and Bicycles and her adorable son Dexter. Miss Sarah will be checking in every Tuesday this summer with posts on cycling with Dexter and thoughts on retaining that mobile (cycling) lifestyle as a family. And we’re looking forward to hearing more tips and questions from you readers too! Take part in the conversation in the comments section or drop either one of us an email so we can share your own expertise and questions with everybody else in future posts.


For the 3rd summer running, Raffaella has gone out with me to take Dexter photos.

When he was 3 months old he looked something like this.

Here are a few shots from last summer.

Sometimes the crying pictures are the best.

This year we decided to have some wading and lunch at the Legislature.


I rode with the Chariot on the Amsterdam. Surprisingly, it didn’t feel that much lighter than the Madsen!

Here is my new hitch adapter in action.


My little man!


Dexter is all toddler-y and likes adventures.


Raffaella took a break from her camera to play with little D.


Good day for water splashing.


Around noon I unhitched the Chariot and went for sammies and iced coffees at elm.


I am proud to say I did not spill one drop. Expert coffee-basket placement combined with precise evasion of potholes were the keys to my success!

I know baby photos can be done up all nice in a studio, but I prefer to have pictures of Dexter out and about, doing fun stuff. That way when we look at these photos of our family, we can enjoy images of us looking real and happy and active. That’s how I would prefer to remember my little family.

    We’ve taken studio photos just once w/ our daughter, for her first birthday. But for everything else we’ve gone to the park and taken the pictures ourselves. I love the shots we take the best. I can look at the pictures and hear her laughing and squealing. I treasure the memories and if I am not having the best day, I can look at the pictures and it takes me to a happier place remembering the fun we had.
