My big goal this year was to take more family photos, and I’ve failed miserably. I realized a few weeks ago that we haven’t taken a picture of the four of us since Annie’s birthday, and before that, Christmas. That’s just not going to cut it. I called my friend Yvonne, who is starting a photography business with her brother-in-law, Robbie, and booked her to take family portraits. They shot us with a combination of digital and film, and we got the photos over the weekend. I’m so happy with how they turned out, and I wanted to share some of my favorites!
We didn’t realize it at the time, but Annie was right on the brink of being pretty sick with a bad chest cold. She was a trooper, although her usual zest for posing wasn’t always there. I still think she looks beautiful.
I love the one-on-one photos of Mike and me with each kid.
There are some stunning individual photos of Annie and James:
But the ones that make me the happiest are of Annie and James together. They are just the sweetest.
I cannot WAIT to hang these up on our walls. It was much more relaxing being in front of the camera than behind it! I’m so glad I booked professionals. I was going to say it was a splurge, but honestly, to have these photos…they’re priceless.
