We Did It. Family Photos 2014

 Time to breathe a sigh of relief – family photos for 2014 are DONE! 
There are so many variables that come into play when planning for photos. Coordinating clothes without having to buy a new wardrobe for the whole family, weather (will there be sun? clouds? rain? snow? – we do live in Canada, it happens),  finding a good location for that time of day, hoping the kids cooperate, hoping I don’t break an ankle while running madly from the camera and into the shot before the self-timer goes off – honestly, I need to invest in a clicker. I kid you not, it kept me up at night worrying about getting these done. Does that happen to you? As a family photographer, let me take this moment to say – I understand!!!
 In the end, we managed a couple of different shots that I’m happy with – and can I give a shout out to my amazing hubby who was a master of the bug spray, and my awesome girls who couldn’t have cooperated any better. BEST!
 Thankfully, we had most of the grey, denim, and turquoise clothing already in our closets, and the blown-up portait will look great in our livingroom which is decorated in these colors. Bonus!
We also managed to get some nice individual shots of my girls. I just love them so much!! And, they are gorgeous. I know, I’m biased…. but, come on!
 And, of course, I can’t forget my main man. Seriously, he is such a babe. I’m so lucky to have him. 
 I decided, on a whim, to let my hubby snap a photo of me. My self-image hasn’t been great, lately, so I really wasn’t excited about it, but my kids made me laugh and my hubby got a shot of me that I don’t totally hate 🙂 You know what? I actually kind of love it. What I see in this photo is a great new hair cut, some smiling green eyes, and a happy gal who feels extra blessed these days. Life. Is. Good.

  1. Your family's photos had a gorgeous outcome– because you're all gorgeous to begin with!! 😉 Can't wait until we get ours done too… And isn't *funny* that I had already colour coordinated our outfits before seeing these pictures– and we have the same hues!! Greg, white, aqua, & denim. Haha. I'll be sure to add a pop of colour somehow so we don't look too matchy-matchy to you guys. *Blush*


  2. Your not biased at all. Your girls are all gorgeous! :)You look wonderful….. you have a beautiful family. I can hardly wait to do mine and my husbands portraits outdoors. Thanks so much for sharing.
