Family pictures

This weekend we had Gavin's 9 month pictures, Emily's 2 year pictures and our family pictures.....it was interesting/crazy/funny/tiring to say the least.

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.

more running

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!


  1. Haha, your captions along with each photo are hilarious! I used to love getting our pictures taken, but the last time two times we did it, maternity and newborn for Drake, it was more stressful than anything. Guess it's the season of life, but in the end I'm so glad we have them to look back on. I think your pictures are adorable and show exactly how wonderful your family is!

  2. beautiful family -even the outtakes!!

  3. A) love the outfits, B) love the pictures and C) SUCH an adorable family. These are total framers for sure. :)

  4. Wow these are amazing!!!! Love that you stepped in poop, and just rolled with it! Emily and Avery even seem to have similar personalities, that sounds like something Avery would yell out constantly too!!!

  5. I love these! And that is hilarious that Emily kept chanting that! Sounds like something B would do. Our dog peed in the house the other day and she is still saying UH OH DAR DAR PEE PEE! Awesome...

    I love these pics of your little family!

  6. So beautiful! I love these! We're having family pictures taken this Sunday and I am SO excited! It's our first time having a professional family photo done. Isn't that ridiculous?!

  7. Such a gorgeous family! Its so important to keep up with getting pictures taken. It sounds like your photo shoot was full of adventures too! :)

  8. Oh these are all soo beautiful!! You have one gorgeous family, that is for sure. I think they turned out perfectly, since they show the kids' personalities so well. Love them!

  9. It seems like it was all worth it because these are GORGEOUS pictures. Such a beautiful family!

  10. I love the one of them in the grass. My guy used to scream like crazy if we put him anywhere near grass. Now he just glares at us like we're evil. Making progress :)

  11. Oh I love the one of them laying in the grass! So playful! Beautiful family!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
