First, I had to figure out what everyone would wear, good lord what a task. After a few trips to the store and many discussions (which Steve pretended nicely to care about), we (I) settled on blues and greys.
We met our photographer in the afternoon; Gavin was half asleep and Emily just wanted to run wild through the park. We walked what seemed like 10 miles to different areas in the park to get different backgrounds, etc. Of course after a few minutes of walking, Emily wanted me to carry her, Steve was carrying Gavin, and we were all sweaty by the end of the shoot.
Side note- I stepped in dog crap and Emily chanted 'mommy step in poop' for the rest of the afternoon. Good times.

These are just a few I got through facebook. I'm hoping we got at least one family shot with all of us looking at the camera but I'm happy with the ones I've seen so far. Their little personalities are captured perfectly!
