Family Photos

I can't believe I haven't posted this pictures yet! While we were in MN I decided it was time to get some family photos done since the pictures we have hanging on our walls are from when Logan was 9 months old! I contacted a friend I have known for a couple of years who started her own photography business (with a partner). She is a true inspiration for me! Check out her blog J/S Photography. I didn't realize how hard it would be to photograph our family or at least a one year old in family poses. I mean, I have gotten some great photos of Austin by myself, but when you try and have him pose in family shots....oofta! It was hard!

She had some great tricks up her sleeve like fruit snacks and great distractions. Do any of you photographers have some tricks to get the young ones pay attention? Please doo share:-)







Have a good weekend ya'll! What are some of your labor day plans? Anyone traveling?

These are gorgeous!

No tips, I took these pictures a couple weekends ago. http://www.lovingmylifeblog.com/2010/08/black-and-white-wordless-wednesday.html

With 4 kids ranging from newborn to 8. It was difficult to get them all to look at the same time.

I love these! My favorites are the top and like Casey said, the one with you guys kissing behind! I showed them to my Mom when she was here this morning and she commented on how beautiful they were, how beautiful your long hair is, and how BIG the boys are!!

We're "laboring" this labor day weekend and have been doing yardwork all day. Mike will be working tomorrow and Monday.

Miss you!

I like the pictures you posted love, I really would like for you to send me some to hang in my room, this place is definitely missing your face. Well, so am I. I love you angel.
