I have this love hate relationship with family pictures. I stress so much leading up to them…trying to plan perfectly coordinated outfits, worrying about the kids being happy during the photos, fretting over how humid it will be and how long I have until my hair turns into a frizzy mess… But then when I get the photos back, all those worries seem so insignificant and I am always so happy to have done the photos.
I am in love with our pictures from earlier in the fall. Like I can’t stop looking at them. They turned out so perfectly and I am beyond happy with how each of the kids were captured. And, bonus, we got one picture where everyone was looking at the camera AND smiling!! Crazy, I know! And can this location be any more beautiful?! Our amazing photographer has this land by her and her sister’s studio. It was a cloudy & humid morning, which made for beautiful pics (and frizzy hair…). We took the pictures in late summer and we were able to wear dresses and shorts – almost everything we wore is now on sale! I linked the outfits above. I went with a navy, white, gold, and light blue color theme.
This such a fun and happy time in our life… I know how weird that sounds with everything we have going on with Aaron’s illness. It is this weird dichotomy with such happiness and joy with each other and our children, but immeasurable sadness and heartache with Aaron’s illness. I am so grateful to capture this beautiful time in our life and have these special pictures to look back on.
